    driver for old Canon scanner

    Vmware Player does run a 32 bit XP system. A USB scanner can be passed from a 64 bin Win7 to the XP system.

    Normal mode booting OK but BSoD in safe mode

    It's no the RAM itself, something before the RAM. E,g broken capacitors or power supply. At a old machine, capacitors may dry out, without a bulking head. Ignore the error so far, replace the hardware in future.

    There are some minor trouble, yes this can result to a BSOD 0x7e. Backup importand data first. Run a extended test at WD windlg.exe. If there is a question to repair at end of test, do the repair. https://support.wdc.com/downloads.aspx?p=3&lang=en

    A world of problems.

    Nvidia offers XP drivers still. Overall it's a hit or miss. May work or fail finally. XP should run at the EliteDesk 800 G1. However expect a driver hunting, may take some time. And exppect minor glitches, e.g. already mentioned missing USB3.0 Good luck

    A world of problems.

    https://support.hp.com/au-en/document/c03832938 HP EliteDesk 800 G1 Small Form Factor (SFF) PC Specifications Chipset Intel Q87 Express Windows XP is not supported by the manufactuer. XP should run at a Q87 in general, however it's a search for the drivers. SATA, chipset and network should be possible. Which graphic card is installed? No USB 3.0 drivers, change BIOS to USB 2.0 mode.

    XP Power Options

    Without the driver the cpu runs at full speed. Power scheme cannot reduce the speed, there is no cpu power driver. I guess stock speed 3.5 Ghz, I don't know Fx cpu details, hence 3.8 Ghz is possible too. Try the driver.

    XP Power Options

    A amd processor driver was required to change the processor speed (amdk8.sys) back then. Date: 10/02/2007 http://m.majorgeeks.com/files/details/amd_k8_processor_driver.html The old driver may work or fail at the FX cpu.
  8. No, the USB get's a drive letter at textmode normally. As far as I know, the Rufus MBR at USB does addional settings, like drive swapping. I don't remember details. Didn't get hard disk second partiton the d: drive letter at textmode? Is this with or without a migrate.inf? Does this change at installation? Which hardware do you use? There are some strange BIOS releases.
  9. @shae Try both: set a drive letter for the USB partition. And set drive letter d: for the hard disk partiitons in addition. Or boot a PE after first reboot. Import the XP registry system hive. And adjust MountedDevices, rename e: to d: Raw example, to be adjusted https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/223188/how-to-restore-the-system-boot-drive-letter-in-windows

    In-place upgrade from XP to 8.1?

    I understand, you did save the Legacy Only setting. That's good. Did you try to boot from the pendrive? Do this. What do you get next? Does Win8.1 installation start?
  11. @Togijak Add files StartDot3.VBS, USERDATA-EAP-TLS.xml and Wired-WinPE-EAP-TLS.xml too. https://support.microsoft.com/de-de/help/972831/the-ieee-802-1x-authentication-protocol-is-not-supported-in-windows-pr https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/972831/the-ieee-802-1x-authentication-protocol-is-not-supported-in-windows-pr
  12. Can you check this at a machine? I get at Win 10, VMware UEFI boot: bcdedit /set {bootmgr} description "NVRAM run \EFI\Microsoft\Boot\bootmgfw.efi" The VMware nvram file contains the unicode string "NVRAM run \EFI\Microsoft\Boot\bootmgfw.efi". UEFI boot selection shows ths string too. Bcdedit does write to UEFI NVRAM. Can you clarify your project? A default windows installtion dosn't set the [firmware device name]. Which part sets the [firmware device name]? Or does the motherboard add the [firmware device name] on the fly?
  13. @i430VX Isn't this a Atom Z3735G bay trail hardware? The touchpad is connected to a IO controller. Do you have a OTG cable and a USB mice? Install the IO drivers first Or embedd the relating IO drivers to Windows 8/10. https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/29035/Intel-Atom-Processor Processor I/O Controller Driver https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/24096/Intel-Processor-I-O-Controller-Driver-for-Windows-8-1- https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25618/Intel-Embedded-Drivers-for-Microsoft-Windows-10-IoT-Core-32-bit-and-64-bit-MR1?product=29035 Or search at big manufacturer for bay trail hardware. They may offer drivers (chipset / IO) .

    Reducing power useage to minimum

    A D820 uses a 945GM chipset. https://www.dell.com/downloads/global/products/latit/en/spec_latit_d820_en.pdf 26 W is average for this hardware family. Which CPU and graphic card do you use? RMClock Utility can change CPU VCore. http://cpu.rightmark.org/download.shtml However the limitations are hard wired at the CPU. A average mobil CPU runs at a lower voltage too. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_2_microprocessors Undervolt the CPU at low speed http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/undervolting-core-duo-core-2-duo-by-pin-mod-part-2.365230/ Do you use a NVida GPU? Undervolt the GPU http://www.guru3d.com/files-details/nvidia-inspector-download.html Given little CPU being used, no need to remove a lot of programs. The programs seems not to produce CPU load. Do you use a virus scanner? Remove this at a internal network machnie. Given a 945GM hardware area, some power reduction should be possible, but not very much (not half power consumption). I guess the challenge is with given hardware. Disable devices at device manager or remove not used hardware, e.g. Bluetooth, WLAN, Modem http://downloads.dell.com/manuals/all-products/esuprt_laptop/esuprt_latitude_laptop/latitude-d820_service%20manual_en-us.pdf

    How to install Windows 7 from USB 3.0?

    VIA USB 3.0 driver xhcdrv.sys calls windows driver wdfldr.sys. If you use a historic VIA USB 3.0 driver , it's calling a wdfldr.sys 1.9. This wdfldr.sys is integrated in Windows 7. The xhcdrv.sys driver works. Dism includes the VIA USB 3.0 driver only, not the WdfCoInstaller. The OS default wdfldr.sys is used still. If you use a current VIA USB 3.0 driver, then xhcdrv.sys calls a newer wdfldr.sys. This is not included in Windows 7. The xhcdrv.sys driver dosn't works. The system is calling for a missing driver. It's a driver version conflict. If you install the drivers at windows, then WdfCoInstaller is installed too. There is a current wdfldr.sys installed. The xhcdrv.sys driver works. If a user use historic hardware, the historic VIA driver works. If a user use more recent hardware, the historic VIA driver dosn't support the hardware and fails.
