I have several computers with W7 in which I finish receiving updates on January 14, 2020. They can not update to W8 or W10 since they are Pentium 4 and the processor does not have the NX bit. Although there are still 2 years left, I am thinking if it is possible to install one of the following to extend the period of updates: Windows 7 Embedded Standard SP1 = October 13, 2020 Windows Embedded POSReady 7 = October 12, 2021 Would it be possible to install it on top or should a clean installation be done?
Hey, 1.) How much RAM can the above mentioned Windows OS see and use? Considering it's going to be 64-bit. 2.) Is the latest DirectX supported in this OS? 3.) Are all of the apps removed? - That's the main reason I'd be going for this embedded operating system because I hate apps and basically all the unwanted and unnecessary features and processes. 4.) Does this OS have any major disadvantages compared to 'Windows 8.1 Professional x64'? (In terms of gaming, browsing, doing casual stuff such as playing back high bit-rate or resolution videos like 4k vids or sound quality, etc) Thanks!
I was wondering if a motherboard with an embded processor would work good with Windows 98 or 9.x in general. I am refering to boards with a processor such as the celeron j800/900, n3050/n3150, amd a4-500, 16-5200 ,e-350, etc. These boards are cheap, low power, and minimal, making them seem pretty good for windows 9.x. I know they are probably too modern but it seems like a good idea. Just a thought here.
