  1. Hello, I am trying to install Windows 2000 from FreeDOS, but when I run winnt.exe, it gives me an error saying setup cannot continue. And no, booting from CD is not an option as I think my CD Drive is damaged (I'm using a VM for testing). Attached is the error.
  2. These are methods that can be found anywhere on the internet, but I wanted to post it here. With this tutorial you should be able to install Windows 11 on any PC that supports Windows 10 x64. Method 1 (any builds as of the time of writing works): 1. Get a Windows 10 ISO. You can do this with the Media Creation Tool, or with Windows ISO Downloader. 2. Copy the contents of the ISO to a folder. Go to sources and delete "install.wim" or "install.esd". 3. Get a Windows 11 ISO 4. Mount the Windows 11 ISO. 5. Go to the sources folder, and copy "install.wim" or "install.esd" 6. Paste the install.wim/esd file into the Windows 10 sources folder. You can only do a clean install however. I recommend using Windows Easy Transfer from Windows 7/8 (not 8.1) to transfer your files and settings. You can run setup.exe in the sources folder to do a clean install of 11, but here's how to make it into an ISO. 7. Download and install NTLite. https://www.ntlite.com/ 8. Once you have installed it, select "Free", unless you have a license. 9. Click "Add" > "Image directory" 10. Select the Windows 10 setup with the Windows 11 "install.wim/esd" folder. 11. Right click on "install.wim/esd", and click "Create ISO" Method 2 (works with only builds 21996 and before I think, you can try other builds if you want): 1. Get a Windows 11 ISO. 2. Copy the contents of the ISO to a folder. Go to sources and delete "appraisesres.dll" 3. Get a Windows 10 ISO. You can do this with the Media Creation Tool, or with Windows ISO Downloader. 4. Mount the Windows 10 ISO. 5. Go to the sources folder, and copy "appraisesres.dll" to the sources folder into the Windows 10 ISO. 6. Paste the file into the "sources" folder in the Windows 11 directory. When you run the setup, it should check to see if it is capable for Windows 10 and not 11. If you want to make this into an ISO, refer to the instructions in Method 1.
  3. Hi, I am currently running Windows 11 build 22000 on my HP Elitebook 840 G3. I have experienced a lot of problems, such as if I am AFK for a long time, the computer will shut off completely. Also explorer is very buggy. Should I go to 7/8/8.1/10, or should I keep 11?
  4. Hello, I have ISOs for every Windows Server release except for Server 2012 and I can't seem to find one for Server 2012. Does anyone know where I can download a Server 2012 RTM (Build 9200) ISO?
  5. Hi, I am running Windows 11 x64 build 22000.51 on my HP EliteBook 840 G3, and I use the machine for 30 minutes with one to two VMs open, but then it randomly powers off with no warning. It turns off like it is hibernating, but when I turn it on, the lights come on, but not the display. This has happened to me three times today and I do not know why this is happening. Should I downgrade to Windows 10 or is it a hardware problem?
  6. It worked after a clean install. Thank you all for your help.
  7. I did that and I am currently downloading the update.
  8. I know that. I will probably downgrade to 10 and just update from there.
  9. I don't think so, as I was able to update from Windows 11 21996 to 22000 on my Surface Pro.
  10. Hello, I am currently running Windows 11 build 21996 and want to update to 22000. I have an HP EliteBook 840 G3, and when I try to upgrade, it gives me this error: Your PC does not meet the minimum hardware requirements recommended for Windows 11 and there may be bugs and issues that impact your experience. Learn more. Your Windows Insider account requires attention to get Insider Preview builds. [Fix the problem] I then click "Fix the problem", but I then am asked to check the Feedback Hub and get the error code 0x7fffffff. I have even switched from UEFI Class 2 to 3+ (but I have TPM 1.2, also idk how to enable it), and I still get the error.
  11. I tried that method but it just restarted. Also tried boot logging but it didn’t work and I booted into 7 and couldn’t find the boot log. Should I upgrade the processor? That same article I read, which I will link, has someone running 8.1 x64 on this Dell (or maybe the E510, idk). https://www.dell.com/community/Desktops-General-Read-Only/Dell-Dimension-5150-will-not-install-a-64bit-OS/td-p/5181651
  12. I was able to install 7 x64, but I also read that only 7 and 8 x64 are supported. But I will try the RAM upgrade from 3 GB to 4 GB and see if I can install 8.1 or 10 x64.
  13. I know it's not supported, but could it technically be possible?
  14. It was 10 20H2 x64 but I wanted to install 21996 (Windows 11 x64). I will boot the setup and do the said method.
