  1. Good news! The latest version of Basilisk Browser works on Vista with extended kernel ( XP and Vista were officially not supported ). I used the 64-bit Asia/Japan installer package and extracted it and then followed the same method used to make Firefox 68, 78, 79 etc. run on Vista with Basilisk. I've not tested addons or themes though.
  2. Also, I discovered that this kernel extension works with all the post-EOL updates from 2017-18 from @greenhillmaniac's repository (version no. 6.0.6003.20555), so you need not completely forgo the Server 2008 updates.
  3. I have installed Vista Business on a Dell Latitude E5420 with a Kingston 480gb SSD which is very fast in boot, file operation etc. and I installed Naraeon SSD Tools to manually trim it. But I see my ssd model no. with "unsupported" in brackets. I checked SSD-Z and it shows that this ssd is capable of trim. And also i have run trim and ssd optimisation tweaks a few times despite the unsupported message and it shows no errors whatsoever. Only FW update does not work. Does this mean that it is running trim? And if it is not, will it affect the ssd negatively after a span of a year or so? Also one more question. Is CCleaner a viable alternative to SSD Tweaker Pro if NST does not work since I can't spend 10 bucks? And if the CC method works, could anyone please guide me on how to use it? Please reply ASAP. Looking forward to a positive response.
  4. Do you install the pre-EOL updates through pkgmgr in CMD? I am asking this as my knowledge of this is almost nil.
  5. Hello all, I have been installing and reinstalling Vista on my old Pentium D desktop because it always had some or the other issue. I had Vista Enterprise installed first but yesterday I changed it to Ultimate through another clean install. I heard that MS has discontinued the WU services due to SHA-1 security risks, so I might have missed out on some 200 pre-Vista EOL updates including optional ones. So my questions are: 1. Is there any method to install .cab updates from @greenhillmaniac's pre-EOL update repository other than slipstreaming? 2. Is it pointless to install Server 2008 updates from @greenhillmaniac's other repository without installing pre-EOL updates? Looking forward to some positive response
  6. Which hardware to be exact? Please specify the processor and mobo
  7. Did you install it on Haswell+hardware?
  8. Okay so I tried installing it again and the screen was still throwing that error at me and anyway, I got my old desktop back after sending it to a repairman and it works very well, so now I'll keep 7 on the laptop for now. Anyways, thanks for all your replies.
  9. I'm really sorry to say that I excluded an important detail , which is I actually tried installing Vista first with an iso of vista business sp1 x86 and I got the errors. Any more suggestions to get it running on my laptop?
  10. are there logon or service failures or any such things on vista x86? and are graphics drivers available? and are there any errors during preinstallation environment like the ones I encountered?
