  1. The easiest and safest way would be for you to enable CSM / legacy boot support on the BIOS setup. Windows 7 doesn't work with pure UEFI systems without some modifications on the bootloader.
  2. I would only use XP on a machine that doesn't perform good enough with a modern operating system (pentium 4 or older) and linux isn't a viable alternative. Software patches are important for our own online safety
  3. Also, make sure that you use 32bit windows because the memory usage is considerably lower if you can't afford more RAM
  4. I hope "$763.45" shipping is a mistake... BIOS updates are cumulative, you only need to flash the latest version and that's all. There are some rare computers that require you to update to an intermediate bios version before upgrading to the last version but those are extremely rare and it's documented that you need that.

  6. Is there any localized version of any kind of "service pack" for 98se? I have a pentium mmx laptop that I brought back to life (old capacitors are crap, they leak everywhere...)
  7. If foobar2000 can't play it, probably nothing can. Can't you mount the .bin file as a virtual drive and use any media player?
  8. I've done that many times at my work when people install windows in CSM mode on a uefi system because they don't know better. Just install windows in CSM mode (or use the existing system if it was installed in CSM/BIOS mode) and then boot to windows instal media. Press shift+F10 and open diskpart, format the boot partition in fat32 and use bcdboot to reinstall the boot files with the /f UEFI switch. Reboot, disable CSM and done! Should be much easier than your method and the result will be a UEFI-MBR bootable disk with uefi class 3+ compliance.
  9. As of today (26 september 2020), the windows update for xp and vista (and maybe 2000?) is working. Grab them while you can Note: the wsusscn2.cab is still only sha2 signed
  10. I use Macrium Reflect Free for all my backup / cloning purposes on my work and at home. It's free for both comercial and personal users. Give it a try.
  11. Running a year 2000+ cpu without thermal paste is asking for trouble. That 2 or 3 dollars/euros that you save on a small cheap tube might cost you a new system. Even if the cpu doesn't thermal throttle, the huge spikes in temperature from idle to load might kill the chip. Also remember that older cpu's are NOT designed to run hot like today's cpus.
  12. Intel HD is responsible for the graphics output. It is directly connected to the internal display and it can't be disabled. On modern operating systems, when a 3D application is detected, the driver enables the discrete GPU and renders only that specific window (or fullscreen) application. The intel HD is still rendering the rest of the screen. XP doesn't support switchable graphics so this will never work. You can only disable the intel HD graphics on a laptop after doing several hardware modifications or if you have a "gaming" laptop that has that feature. (some laptops have a "gam
  13. Except IE9 on vista x64. It needs some extra procedures to install. On x86 there is no problem
  14. I can confirm. The new wsusscn2.cab doesn't have a sha1 signature. Here's the last version with sha1 signature Filename: wsusscn2_sha1.cab Date: 14 July 2020 Link: http://www.mediafire.com/file/jxklkf1p8bjifff/wsusscn2_sha1.cab/file MD5: fe805bbf07898f2ab4ebc5e8a63983a8
  15. I have that same problem if I enable windows XP automatic updates. Disable windows XP automatic updates (set to never check for updates), reboot the system and try again.
