  1. Hello MSFN, i recently installed Windows XP under a Ryzen 3 1200 machine with the A320 chipset. I initially found the ACPI was incompatible, 0x000000A5 BSOD if i recall correctly, so i replaced the ACPI driver in the ISO with a newer, community-modified one that fixes the problem. Everything now seems to be working fine, except one thing: I realized Windows XP Home Edition was only recognizing 2 cores out of the total of 4 cores the processor has. At first i wasn't very sure why was that happening. I first tried switching different BIOS options to check if that was the problem, as well as revising Windows configuration, but that didn't help. I then decided to do some testing: First, i installed Windows XP Home Edition (ACPI fixed ISO) under my AMD FX-8300 machine, as it has 8 cores. If the problem was also present there, it would have nothing to do with Ryzen. I have Windows 7 on my machine, and installed XP Home Edition on a different hard drive (having the other one unplugged). As expected, Windows XP Home Edition detects all my cores perfectly (detailed screenshot). Now let's see what happens when i install Windows XP Home Edition (with the exact same ISO image i used with the AMD FX). The machine has Windows 8.1 installed and i'm installing Windows XP Home Edition on a different hard drive (having the other one unplugged). As i said earlier, only 2 cores are recognized (detailed screenshot). I was already guessing what could be the cause of the problem, so i proceeded to install Windows XP Professional Edition, with the exact same ACPI fix and... It detected all cores as should (detailed screenshot). I'm aware XP Home Edition supports up to 1 physical processor, while XP Professional supports up to 2 physical processors, but that doesn't make much sense in this context as the Ryzen 3 1200 is a single physical processor. I believe the Ryzen architecture is modularized at silicon level (you can see here the 1200 has 2 modules), but everything is still under the same die. The AMD FX architecture is also fully modularized, each module having 2 cores and 2 threads (the FX 8300 has a total of 4 modules), but doesn't suffer from this problem. As a last resort, i considered the system might actually be using all cores, but after doing some benchmarks, that was clearly not the case, and it seems the system is just using two. You might now suggest we should just use Professional Edition as that one seems to fix the problem... But if you think about it, if the root problem is XP recognizing each Ryzen module as an individual physical processor, then, Zen 2 processors, which are more modularized than the predecessor microarchitectures, will suffer from this exact problem on both Home and Pro, let alone the Ryzen Threadripper. Using Professional Edition seems to only be a solution for those using older and less powerful Ryzen CPUs. Using Windows Server 2003 could also be considered a solution, but given how very few people has licenses for it, is not a very practical one. Furthermore, i couldn't make the ACPI driver patch work with it (although it might be possible to get it working and i'm not aware). At this point i'm starting to believe this is caused because of a bug within the Windows XP physical processor detector, or either, a BIOS bug, but that last one seems less likely. I'm usure if there's already a solution for this, that's why i'm asking here. Has anyone tried Ryzen with XP and had the same problem? I couldn't find much information regarding this as the XP Ryzen scene is quite small. If there's no known solution, i'd be interested to look forward for a fix to this. Any information that could get us closer to a solution is highly appreciated. If anyone interested has a Ryzen processor, you can try installing XP on your machine and telling us your results. Thanks in advance for all your help. Further details worth considering: - All Windows XP ISOs used are original and untouched (en_windows_xp_home_with_service_pack_3_x86_cd_x14-92413.iso, en_windows_xp_professional_with_service_pack_3_x86_cd_x14-80428.iso). The only thing i did was replace the ACPI driver, as well as adding USB3 (for usb3 install) and AHCI drivers (motherboard lacks IDE). I've done the exact same procedure with Professional and Home Edition to include the drivers to the ISO file. - All the Windows settings were left as they were out of the box. Nothing within the system configuration has been changed.
  2. Hi, I'm using Windows 10 with Aero Glass and Translucent TB. When certain apps are playing animations, I get a very strange artifacting/screen tearing problem. It tends to happen mostly with Windows Store apps and browsers playing YouTube videos. It also sometimes happens while watching a Discord screenshare. It's difficult to replicate because it doesn't happen consistently, and I also can't get a capture of it. [Doesn't appear on screen recordings or to those watching my screen.] Any help is appreciated, I'm at a loss for what to do. Thanks in advance!
  3. Hey guys, I need some help with my old laptop, if possible. I have a 2002 Dell Inspiron 8200 running Windows 98 SE and frequently while using it, the mouse cursor, either slowly or instantly, slides over to either the bottom-left or top-right corners of the screen and I can't move it away from there. I've tried unplugging my Logitech USB mouse and using the touchpad instead and tried re-installing the mouse drivers, but neither solutions seem to have solved the issue at all. I've also tried searching on Google for a solution, but I can't really find anything for Windows 98 regarding mouse issues like mine. Does anyone have any other solutions that I could try? EDIT: It seems as though every year around this time, during the summer, this problem starts happening. I don't know if this is just coincidence, but I thought I should add this, just in case.
  4. Hello guys. I searched for few hours to resolve my problem, ultimately I decide to wrote this post. My problem is that I got Windows 10 Home, 1709 version and I can't install aero . After downloaded installer and switch on I got notification "This service is not supposed to be executed by the user" even i setup compatibility and run as admin or "this program does not support the version of windows". This same issue happend if I downloaded folder directly and run exe. (always I unzip all files to C hard drive) Question is: It's a any solution for my issue? Or i have to wait until developer unleash version for 1709 ? Maybe i skip something important? I have never used this program before. Today I have discovered it, and I really liked idea. I have donated and of course have generated donation key. I will be really grateful if someone could help me. somuel
  5. Hi, I wanted to donate, I had chosen all settings and went to Paypal website when prompted. Paypal's site was in Danish which I understand, but seems strange when jumping from english site). I pressed 'Log på' and got redirected to non-existing website (see screenshot). TLS's 'lock' seemed to be OK according to my humble knowledge, uBlock origin was disabled for that case. Alternatively, there was an option to pay with credit/debet card on Paypal's site, but under such circumstances I'd like to wait with payment until the issue gets explained.
  6. System: Dell l502x XPS 15 (Early, 2011) HD Seagate momentus (st9750420as) 750gb What happened? Yesterday I tried to update the HDD firmware(link ate the end of the post) so I downloaded the recommended version for my pc. There were two options an .exe file (the one I used) and a usb option that creates a usb boot drive with the firmware. So I followed all the steps, the pc reboot and got stuck in a black screen like this: (with "seagate" text flashing...) After 2 hours waiting I shutdown the pc and after that it no longer boots the windows, it stucks in a black screen with a flashing underscore. Here are some pictures of the bios. First Thing I've tried, Instal the firmware via USB boot drive, its the usb folder in the firmware file (bottom of the post) dind't work. Second try was to create a windows recovery usb, the result was this: 1º nothing been shown (os, drive size) 2º trying to acess C: from cmd returns something like this: "The volume does not have a system of known files" "be shure that all system fille drivers are loaded and the volume is not corrupted." Ps: "E:" is my pendrive. 3º try, usb seatools Firmware link: http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=C6RX3&fileId=3292829046&osCode=W764&productCode=xps-l502x&languageCode=EN&categoryId=SA&DCP=DNDTAG
