  1. Hmm , maybe , it might be a possibility
  2. i read somewhere 1-2 years back that 4400 and a few others in the 4XXX series work on xp and vista and 4600 isnt possible since it has a corrupted/missing driver in the unofficial driver although i couldnt confirm this since the drivers are meant for desktop only and i had a mobile intel 4400 running xp , ofc usb 3.0 is out of the question
  3. yes ,the services wont start but not all around 2-3 services mainly explorer.exe , the audio service or the dwm which handles aero , if you manually start it , it will run smoothly , I've never restarted my pc when it doesn't load , most of the times on a startup if you get a black screen all you have to do is open task manager and click new task and type explorer.exe in there and it would work perfectly. Sometimes aero wont work , so one needs to open cmd in admin and type net stop uxsms and then net start uxsms for audio , go to start , type services and go to the bottom and start windows audio , its not that tough as it seems , been using vista for 3 years on skylake (6700hq)
  4. it will work, i was probably the first to test this since i had a brand new skylake with 10 series pascal cards in 2016 , the problem is , it wont consistently work the same way, services sometimes wont start quickly or wont start at all showing a black screen at startup. You can manually start the service should that happen or restart , other than that it will work
  5. its not an official driver for vista , it just works somehow, i tried all drivers from 367 onwards , none of them gave good results , opengl games like doom (2016) worked pretty good although, many programs wont even work properly as its unable to utilise the driver properly

    Am I Using UEFI

    im sure you can open cmd in admin and type diskpart , then list disk , GPT = UEFI , MBR = legacy , if gpt doesnt show a star it means its in legacy basically
  7. why use 368.81? use 372.70 instead , its a newer version
  8. thanks for making newer versions of rufus available i used it a few times , there are many who appreciated your compiled version and use it
  9. im not sure it works but ive heard it does , Copy wmploc.dll to C:\Windows\System32 and Copy Windows Media Player folder to C:\Program Files , also it seems you need to use resource tuner to change the version of wmp12 to match vista's for eg. 12.7000.7000 should be set to 12.6002.7000 considering you have vista sp2. Also you need to change the O/S version and subsys version to 6.0 to remove the "not valid win32 app " error. You can google wmp12 on windows vista , many websites have info on it.
  10. it should be easy to start from chrome 51 as it already partially opens , also ive heard over many places that WMP 12 will work if you copy and replace it from Windows 7 7000 beta build , IE10 should be able to work although there seem to be artificial block or something which prevents it from loading , if you can figure it out , it would be a massive thing , i too love vista and have it till today dual booted with windows 7.
  11. yes , i have the ie10 preview , i could give it a try , but seeing that the problem is fixed ( maybe) , i will refrain from doing so for now
  12. works fine for me on vista sp2
  13. yea i was just asking , it felt a bit odd , not picking a fight or so
  14. i believe visual studio 2010 was the last to support it
  15. why are you running service pack 1? install service pack 2 , google wanted to seperate vista from the windows 7 branch and merge it with windows xp's branch thus its blocked afaik
  16. Why didn't you go for home premium or business? ultimate might add unneccesary stuff that might hog up a bit extra memory and processing, also you might want to get Windows 2008 Updates to be secure incase you're going to be using the internet for browsing or watching videos or anything related , although dont get the Spectre Updates if you decide to get the updates , it cuts around 25-30% cpu speed and considering you're already on 1.6ghz you wouldn't want that, It might a bit offtopic to what you asked but just a suggestion
  17. you are heavily mistaken , reality is vista sp2 is better than windows 7
  18. good job, really good info, thanks for sharing it with us
  19. well moonchild claimed that we could see vista support for the future he also said basilisk and palemoon 28 would work so i dont know why he wouldnt do it
  20. all we can do is wait and hope that moonchild supports vista as he himself clearly knows that vista and 7 are alike and little to no work is needed to get it working if im correct.
  21. @WinClient5270 at first he was totally against the idea of having vista supported and now hes caught saying kernel 6 is supported, lets hope he decides to help the vista users out
  22. moonchild did say vista wasnt compatible long time ago, but after he mentioned that their targetted kernel was 6 and above the questions were raised and he said "As for our support: support for features will be limited in Vista, but since it matches the minimum platform requirements there's no reason to change that on a per-application basis. UXP applications including Basilisk and Pale Moon 28 should continue to run on Vista in the foreseeable future." as you can see for yourself if you wish to. So it should be supported probably but no one really knows what will happen.
