  1. Is there drivers for this for 98/ME? If not is there a generic driver to get out of 640X480*16? Thanks. Also the Belkin N150 adapter, is there any drivers for that?
  2. I have installed Windows ME on this laptop. Couldn't get a single driver to work though. Just add : MaxPhysPage=40000 to the [386enh] section of system.ini after the DOS based setup. You will get a BSOD involving ACPI though. When it halts the system, just reboot and it will boot into ME. When Setup is done and you get into ME, install KernelEx, You can do this by downloading unicows.exe (Microsoft Layer for Unicode for 95,98,ME), copy those files to C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM. Then KernelEx will install. The BSOD for ACPI should go away. It's up to you for the drivers though........
  3. I am interested in running some older OSes. Particularly, Windows 98/ME. Would these specs work out? And if they don't what could I run? It's a Dell Optiplex 780: Core 2 Duo 2.93GHz 8GB RAM Dell 03NVJ6 Motherboard Intel Q45/Q43 Express Chipset A 250GB SATA HDD (with legacy options) SoundMAX Integrated HD Audio (if this is for the integrated speaker and the headphone jack will still work, I don't need it) And a Belkin USB Wireless Adapter (fine if i can't use it)
  4. Dell Optiplex 780: 2.93GHz Core 2 Duo 8GB DDR3 RAM 250GB HDD (7200 rpm) + 1TB USB External HDD (5400 rpm) About 1.7 GB of graphics memory DVD-ROM drive Windows 7 Pro x64
  5. Had similar specs to yours. Keep XP unless you HAVE to upgrade. If you do upgrade make sure it is 32-bit (x86). You don't need 64 bit I'm assuming and you will maintain compatibility with older programs/drivers.
  6. Yes I was on a Dell Latitude D630 with Core 2 Duo 2GHz, 2GB DDR2 RAM, little video memory, and a 80GB HDD. What ran good was XP and 2000. Now have an upgraded Optiplex 780 and it runs great on there. Plan to keep 7.
  7. It wouldn't work out, drivers are no further than Windows XP. You could try 2000, you might need to force install some of the drivers via Device Manager though. You can run XP through 10 but it would be pretty slow.
  8. That's fine then. I'll just virtualize 9x OSes. NOT worth the trouble......and I have lots of NTFS flash drives and a 1TB external that is used on a regular basis.....it wouldn't work out.
  9. Yes, I still use Windows 2000 sometimes. Sometimes I VM NT 4.
  10. It is an old Dell Latitude D630 with 2GHz Core 2 Duo, 2GB ram, 80GB HDD. All I want is to run some games, Firefox, Office 07, and some older virtualization programs like VMWare 10.
  11. Do Windows 2000 or XP. I have a Dell D630 Latitude that has: Intel GM965 Chipset Dell 1390 wireless SigmaTel 92XX HD Audio C Major Broadcom 57XX Gigabit Ethernet Conexant D330 Soft Data Fax Modem Alps Touchpad 80GB HDD (I do smaller partitions for W2K) Specs: Core 2 Duo 2GHz 2GB DDR2 Ram 358-384 MB Integrated Graphics (depends on OS) Windows XP works just fine, so does 2K, but I had to hunt down a wireless driver. Found it though. Tried NT4, wouldn't even load setup, and ME, I can get it installed but even with KernelEx can't get ANY of the drivers on it. So go with W2K or XP.
  12. Kewl. How did you do that?
  13. How would ME work on this Latitude? Tried earlier with KernelEx 4.5.2 but no driver would install. The ones essential to me are: Intel GM965 Chipset Sigmatel STAC 92XX C-Major HD Audio Dell Wireless 1390 Video drivers
