Hi, I am wanting to install Windows 2000 on a Dell Latitude 5490, a Kaby Lake machine. I've installed XP with XP2ESD 1.7 by @George King, and Windows Vista and Windows 7 on that laptop. And before anyone says it, no, I am not going to use a VM. And also, the legacy internal boot wouldn't be a problem, as even though it isn't supported, I can use something like WinSetupfromUSB to get around it as legacy external boot is supported. What would I need to do to get 2000 running on the Dell? The laptop has no CD drive, so I would have to install with USB. I have a SATA m2 SSD and USB 3.0. Also, @George King ported the Windows 8 drivers to Windows XP for AHCI and USB 3.0 in the XP2ESD pack, would they work on 2000? And how would I get ACPI working on 2000?
I was wondering if it was at all possible to run windows 98 nativley on new hardware. The built would contain a Pentium G3258,8gb ram,40gb ide drive and ide cd-rom, and a pci graphics card. The pc would also boot linux which would be on a seperate sata harddrive with a sata dvd-rom and use a pci express graphics card. I know you can run 98 with that much ram(change a setting in a file(iv done it before) but am unsure about the processor speed and that its 64 bit. I am aware that Windows 98 will only see one core. I know I could just use virtulization(which I currently do on a difrrent pc) but that takes the fun away.
Hi! I found a while ago an old NT4 cd. Now I'm trying to install it on my main pc, but the installation program crashes without bsod immediately after loading all the stuff to memory and then reboots. Some specs: CPU - Intel I5 3570k, Mobo - some Asus p8z77 with UEFI bios 8GB or 4GB of ram (neither works) USB mouse & keyboard Same results with another 3rd gen I5 pc with Gigabyte mobo and 8 gigs of ram Does anyone have idea of what might cause this? Thanks -Jalmari
Hi! I'm pretty new here, so i don't know if there's been topic about this. I have been thinking of modding windows 98, 98se or 95 to work on modern hardware and making an actual boot/installation disk for it. There's mods for 9x windows to run on 4gb of ram, clock speed over 2.1 ghz without a divide by zero and some more stuff already done. I'm not a great programmer, I just wanted to share the idea. Do you guys think this could work?
