  1. I think another problem is hardware support. Vista cannot be installed on anything following Intel's Ivy-Bridge. Some users have luck with AMD's Ryzen, but most people still have Intel systems. It may seem odd (and it is), that Vista doesn't install on anything after Ivy-Bridge, considering a lot of Windows 7 drivers actually work on Vista. This is further exemplified with Windows XP, which is left with scarce NT5.x drivers on newer hardware, but yet, actually can install with proper SATA drivers. I'm sure there are a few members here that would install Vista on second partition if it were pra
  2. MacOS and Windows 7 is only a difference of 6% and Linux is more popular than Windows 8.x? These metrics seem a bit skewed. MacOS is tied to Apple's hardware, which means that it will be virtually impossible for it to beat Windows 7 which was pre-installed on almost everything that isn't Apple's from 2009-2015. Windows 8.x may not have caught on, but Linux is still very much a niche market outside of servers. Netmarketshare tells us a completely different story , which further indicates this.
  3. This is really sad, I recognized that name anywhere when it came to 9x enhancements. Rest in peace.
  4. EDIT: This method has recently obtained noticeable popularity, and seeing the troubles of other users and more confusing methods on places such as YouTube, I thought it might be a good idea to revise and clarify this a little. Despite the fact that the damage has already been done, perhaps people who come across this topic can be helped. HOW TO FIX ROBLOX ON WINDOWS XP, VISTA, SERVER 2003, and SERVER 2008. I realize this topic is a few days old, but it is now August 30th which means we can see what this actually means. I'm actually quite surprised that they have continued support for
  5. Maybe this isn't the best answer, but you could always just use a PS/2 mouse instead of a USB one. Alternatively, if you like the mouse that you are using, you can get a USB to PS/2 adapter that simply emulates your USB mouse as a PS/2 mouse. If for some reason your computer lacks a PS/2 port, you could also get a PCI PS/2 card.
  6. Someone may have mentioned this before, but Windows Vista seems to run fine with Haswell if it is installed on another computer and then the hard drive is moved to a Haswell system. I tried this with Windows Vista 32-bit (but it should work with any version) and had no problems arise. I didn't install drivers or do any extensive testing but it seemed to be fine. This was with a Q87 motherboard and an i7-4790 CPU. I do plan on setting up the OS properly in the future, so I'll see if anything changes.
  7. This is a very interesting idea and it would be really nice to see this working. This is also a huge undertaking, so I wonder if it would possible to make this a collective effort. Surely this would benefit countless enthusiasts, would it not?
  8. Microsoft seems to know that there is a large amount of people who are sticking with Windows 7 (and with good reason) by now. Why they have selectively ported features (Edge, and now DX12 for some games) from 10 to 7 is a bit mind boggling though, especially in the last year of support. It's welcome, I guess, if you have a use for DX12, but you would think they would still continue to try and force users to 10 as they have continuously done in the past.
  9. Very sad to see this come to an end, but as others have said, software compatibility is more important than software updates. The thing that I would be most concerned about now is the time remaining before Microsoft Update v6 goes offline forever. This is a very real scenario as this is could possibly be the last patches any version of XP will ever receive, meaning it can be closed. Windows Update v4 was closed in 2011 which IIRC handled NT, 95, 98, ME, and 2000 >SP4. Support for 98 and ME ended in 2006, but there was info regarding a version of NT that was supposedly supported until 2
  10. I saw some dentistry commercial on television a few weeks ago that had a computer in the background that was running XP. There was also a cash register computer running Windows XP Pro. at a thrift store that I saw a few months ago. Unfortunately I couldn't get a picture because there were a few people working behind the desk.
  11. Opera 10.63 can also be made to work on 95. Normally, it only runs under NT4 and newer, but editing some functions in the application fixes the problem. It is by far the best browser for 95. It's from 2010 and even has some HTML5 support (think IE9). Link to edited version: http://danika.jukor.net/opera1063win95.html I wonder if this version could be made to work on NT 3.51?
  12. Well, I used HFSLIP to create an updated W2KAS CD. Was able to install Extended Core and KernelEX. I couldn't get the GTX 750 TI to work even with the BWC's unofficial drivers. The chipset drivers that I had used for XP (from Optiplex 7010 which supported XP) failed to install with an unknown error, even after installing nonofficial .net framework 3.x and using FCWIN2K. So, basically XP will work fine on this unsupported system. Make sure you use drivers from the optiplex 7010 (or 9010 if using 9020) as they are similar in design and it supports XP. Ethernet works with Intel's networking
  13. I looked this up and saw that this laptop shipped with Widows XP SP2, correct? Do you know if NT4 is officially supported, and if not, what other versions are supported on it?
  14. Well, I will continue trying regardless. I was able to get networking working (no pun intended) by taking a Realtek PCI networking card out of Celeron Windows 98 system. I ended up reinstalling to fix that integrity error. (This is NOT necessary, there is an update which fixes it available through Windows Update!) [First reinstall] Installed again, began fully updating, installed BWC's Extended Kernel, but then realized that I left the Windows 7 drive in the machine during W2K installation which means that W2K is the 'D' Drive. This is a problem because the Windows 7 C:\ drive is ina
  15. What is Microsoft's reasoning for this? Better yet, why does the chromium engine have to be used for everything? Do people not remember what happened the last time a certain browser had too much market share?
