  1. Make 2003 think its XP?

    The TweakNT program you linked to isn't the same one. The one I am talking about is hard to find because it is, lets say frowned upon. It looks like this link
  2. Make 2003 think its XP?

    I know there was a program called TweakNT and it allowed you to switch between versions. Is that what you are looking for?
  3. Windows 98 Third edition?

    It could have possibly one of the many projects people create (there were many on OSBA), or as said above could just be someone referring to Millenium Edition.
  4. IE7

    In Tools --> Internet Options --> Connections --> LAN Settings is Automatically detect settings on or off. Try alternating this to see if it helps you. Go through your add-ons to see if any bad ones are there, try running IE7 in no-addons mode and try that for 5-10 minutes. You could clear your cache.
  5. I'm not sure if it can do that. If it can that would be really good, and save a lot of time (and finding bits of paper with the right key on it). @tap52384: Find a program called Rock XP, it works on Vista and will show you your license key.
  6. Vista x64 from MS Action Pack

    On the action pack website Windows Vista Business has four *'s which means: ****In some regions, Microsoft will provide the UPGRADE version of the Windows Vista desktop operating system in the Action Pack, which is consistent with how this product is distributed to our Volume Licensing Program customers. I would contact them, shouldn't it have come with two discs one for x64 and one for x86.
  7. looking for a new graphics card

    I'm using a Radeon 9550 256mb card and I would advise (like others above) go for a higher card, it is one of the lowest cards supported in Vista (keeps your rating down to 2.1) It will be worth paying the extra money to get a 9600pro
  8. Copy it somewhere safe then delete it (or rename it) check your email to see if it is still doing it. If that fixes it then just import your old emails from the copy you made.
  9. You may want to contact your email provider. Who is it?
  10. Probem: Booting from a USB Drive without built-in BIOS support.

    I updated the BIOS and Windows XP setup detected the drive. But when it shows the boot screen for the first time after setup copies all the files I get a blue screen.
  11. I'm running a crusty Acer 3000 laptop with a 55gb hard drive, it's about a year old and it's BIOS doesn't support booting from a usb device. Bugger, since I've just inherited a 120gb hard drive which i've shoved into an enclosure. I've googled around for possible solutions to my problem, the most viable being to create a bootable floppy with a script that lets it boot from the usb drive. There are two problems with this - 1) I don't have a floppy disk drive, and 2) even if I did I wouldn't want to go through all that just to start the system. I know there are other ways to do it. Unfortunatley I don't have the patience to read through masses of articles and forum topics to find a solution. I've tried to flash the BIOS with an update that I found on the Acer site (after spending what seemed like hours of frustration trying to find driver downloads), but it only updated support for SCSI and bluetooth. ****. I did find a copy of Phoenix BIOS - no idea if it's an updated version, though. I'd greatly appreciate any help with this. UPDATE: I got through the text based setup fine, but when it goes to boot windows I get a Blue Screen with the code 0x0000007B My next step is to stop that Blue Screen

    Why do you need to remove the core? What is it doing to you?
