  1. He gave me a Windows 2000 ISO, and I was able to install it. Thank you for your attempt to help me.
  2. Someone got NT 3.51 on a Skylake computer on SATA mode, that should mean it is possible for me to install W2K on that machine, right?
  3. I did not know that. My Surface only has 64-bit EFI, and I cannot use both at the same time on VMWare.
  4. It worked! I had to install it on a CSM VM, then deploy it onto my Surface via Macrium Reflect since that device is UEFI only.
  5. Probably something that they do not support. I don't really know. I have tried deploying Windows 8.1 32-bit on 64 bit UEFI and it did not work. I will try installing Windows 10 32-bit on 64-bit EFI. I will try this on my Surface Pro 6.
  6. It could be very useful if you wanted to dual boot Windows XP and Windows 10 on UEFI.
  7. Yes it would work on Vista. You would need to shrink the NTFS partition by 500 MB-1 GB and create an EFI partition out of that. Then switch to UEFI and run the bootsect, bootrec, and bcdboot commands.
  8. If you thought Microsoft said you can't install Windows on UEFI-MBR, they lied. You actually can. Here is how to do it: Method 1: Deploy Windows on UEFI-MBR 1. Boot a Windows 7-10 Installation CD, and press Shift+F10. You will see a command prompt. 2. Type in these commands: diskpart sel disk 0 convert mbr cre par prim size=500 format quick fs=fat32 assign letter w cre par prim format quick fs=ntfs assign letter c exit dism /apply-image /imagefile:(Windows Installation Media)\sources\install.wim /index:1 /applydir:C:\ (If you are using Windows 7 CD, or have imagex instead of dism, type in imagex /apply D:\sources\install.wim 1 C:) bootrec /scanos bootrec /fixmbr bcdboot C:\Windows /s W:\ /f ALL cd /d (Windows Installation Media)/boot bootsect /nt60 C: /force /mbr exit 3. Now reboot, and Windows will start the second stage of setup. If Windows does not boot, try running Startup Repair. You may get an error saying "Windows Setup could not configure Windows to run on this computer's hardware". If it happens, and it tells you to restart the installation, do one of the following methods: 1. Hold Shift+F10, and type in these commands: cd C:\Windows\System32\oobe msoobe.exe 2. Hold Shift+F10, and type in these commands: xcopy cmd.exe sethc.exe taskmgr Kill winlogon.exe and press shift five times. Type in these commands: cd C:\Windows\System32\oobe msoobe.exe 3. Hold Shift+F10, and type in regedit. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/System/Setup and change the CmdLine to oobe/msoobe.exe 4. Hold Shift+F10, and type in these commands: xcopy cmd.exe sethc.exe taskmgr Kill winlogon.exe and press shift five times. Type in these commands: net user /add (your username) net user (your username) * net localgroup /add Administrators (your username) Wait until you get to the login screen, it will be a long process. 5. Restart the installation Method 2: Install Windows on CSM/Legacy, then change to UEFI 1. Install Windows Vista-10 on CSM like you would normally. If you do not have CSM on your machine, you will need to install Vista-10 on a CSM virtual machine, then deploy it on your UEFI Class 3/3+ machine with a program like Macrium Reflect. 2. When you are done installing Vista-10 on CSM, open Disk Management and check if there is a System Reserved partition. If there isn't, shrink your NTFS partition by 500 MB and use that space to make your Recovery partition. If you do make the Recovery partition in Disk Management, you can skip the diskpart part of the following commands. Then change the boot mode to UEFI and boot from a Windows Vista-10 PE 3. Hold Shift+F10 and type in these commands: diskpart sel disk 0 list vol format quick fs=fat32 exit bootrec /scanos bootrec /fixmbr bcdboot C:\Windows /s W:\ /f ALL cd /d (Windows Installation Media)/boot bootsect /nt60 C: /force /mbr Now reboot into Windows. Here is a screenshot of me running Windows on UEFI-MBR.
  9. Hi, Is it possible to run (install/use) Windows NT 4.0 on a Dell Inspiron 15R -5537 (which came with Windows 8). If it is not possible to run NT 4,0 on that machine, can you run Windows NT 4.0 on a computer that was built for Windows 8 or 10 or one with a Haswell proccessor? I am currently running Windows 2000 on that machine. And no, using a VM is not an option. I am open to doing anything.
  10. I have the same problem for my Dell Inspiron 15R-5537 which is a Haswell laptop.
  11. I do not want to use Vista on a VM because that defeats the purpose of this expirement. I am open to doing anything.
