  1. Another goal of mine is to fork Arctic-Fox, and make it Visual C++ 2005/2008, and Windows 2000 compatible. Presently, Arctic-Fox requires Visual C++ 2013, and Windows XP SP2. There exists a Pale Moon 27.x fork by @roytam1 that includes Arctic-Fox commits, that is in the process of becoming Visual C++ 2010/2012 compatible by roytam1 and I.
  2. I have managed to install Windows XP on a UEFI Class 3 Surface Pro 1. I believe I am the first to do this. The Surface Pro 1 only officially supports Windows 8-10, but I have gotten 7 and Vista to work, and now XP. I’ve gotten WiFi to work with an adapter. I haven’t gotten graphics or audio working yet. Here is the showcase video: Special thanks to George King, as I used his XP2ESD tool to install Windows XP on this laptop. Also thanks to UsefulAGKHelper for his method of installing XP on UEFI Class 3. INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Boot the USB. This ISO uses a Windows 10 PE, but has a Windows XP x64 install.wim. 2. Open command prompt by pressing "Shift+F10" 3. On the command prompt, type in the following commands: diskpart sel dis 0 clean conv gpt cre par efi size=100 form quick fs=fat32 assign letter w cre par pri form quick assign letter c exit D:\ (where your USB is) cd sources dism /apply-image /imagefile:install.wim /index:1 /applydir:C:\ - If DISM doesn't work, go to D:\support\tools\gimagex and deploy the image with gimagex.exe in the x64 folder 4. Open up Notepad, and click "Open" or "Save As". Enable all files to be viewed. Go to "D:\EFI partition". Copy the EFI folder onto W:\ (the boot partition) 5. Go back to Command Prompt. Type in "D:\support\tools\Bootice\BOOTICEx64.exe" 6. On Bootice, go to the BCD tab. Click on "Other BCD file". Click on the "...". Go to the BCD file (you can find this in W:\EFI\Microsoft\Boot). Click on "Professional Mode". 7. Click on "Windows XP" under "Application Objects" 8. Under "ApplicationDevice" and "OSDevice", set the boot disk to wherever your XP installation is (most likely disk 0) and the boot part to C:\ (your Windows XP partition). **Every time XP boots, it will always show the boot manager. You can turn it off on Bootice by going to the BCD tab and opening the XP BCD and clicking "Easy Mode", then uncheck "Display boot menu". 9. Reboot. You should be logged in to the Administrator account. If the screen is not displaying anything, you need to reset the resolution. Hit Windows Key + R, and type in desk.cpl. Hit "tab" four times, hit the right arrow four times, hit "tab" once, hit the right arrow once. Then press enter. The screen should now display. USB works on Windows XP. There are no WiFi drivers. You will need to purchase a seperate USB wireless adapter. Also, I have not been able to get sound working on the machine. Getting a USB sound card might fix that.
  3. xpmgr is a license manager for Windows XP and Server 2003 (and hopefully Office and PLUS!), inspired by slmgr for Windows Vista and newer. It can: Get the system's product ID Change the system's product key Generate an Installation ID Send a Confirmation ID Get the # of days until activation is required Get the # of days until the evaluation period expires, for evaluation copies of Windows https://github.com/UMSKT/xpmgr Credits to diamondggg for making the magic numbers, ICOMLicenseAgent interface, and LoadLicenseManager() function, which were taken from [REDACTED] and modified to work in a CLI. This tool supports all x86 and x64 editions of Windows XP, Server 2003 and other one-off editions. Itanium editions are not supported, as they don't have Windows Product Activation in the first place. This tool does not facilitate piracy. This tool is made for power users to have an easier time with license management on older versions of Microsoft products, before Microsoft made slmgr. All that xpmgr does is use API's that the OOBE (or Office's first run) uses.
  4. Hello, I would like to ask if there is a driver on AMD E1-7010 APU with AMD Radeon R2 Graphics on Windows XP?
  5. Hello, Is it possible to install Windows XP on a Skylake machine? I am trying to install it on an HP Elitebook 840 G3. I tried integrating an AHCI driver, but I got the error code 0x0000007b both times when pressing F5 > Standard PC and F7. This should be possible, as someone got Windows NT 3.51 on a Skylake machine.
  6. Hi, Is it possible to install Windows XP x64 on a Dell Latitude 5490? The laptop is UEFI-only (it can only boot legacy from external ports), so I would need to install XP on UEFI. I have thought about using XP2ESD but wanted to know if there are other ways of getting XP running on the laptop.
  7. Hello, I have noticed recently that when I check taskmanager, the RAM usage shows as if it were using more RAM than I even have installed (1GB). Although it shows such high usage compared to what I really have, my computer still seems to be responsive and fast. I have also noticed that after a restart, the ram usage will be back to normal, but when it is left on for a few hours the RAM usage gets a lot higher than it should ever be. I have run multiple virus scans with Malwarebytes, superantispyware, and spybot with a clean report. So why is taskmanager falsely showing such high RAM usage??? Replies are appreciated! Check out the picture I have attached.
  8. I have a Dell Optiples GX620. Pentium D 3.0ghz, 4gb ram (3.2GB Readable), 128GBssd, Windows XP Pro 32bit. I stuck in a MSI nVidia 210 512mb pci-e video card. It is DirectX 10 ready. Anyway of getting DirectX 10 on Windows Xp? I have 9.0c right now. I did use the forum search and all I found was talk about it and dead links. If this is a dead horse, I'm sorry, I just recently began trying to go back to Windows XP. I'm a bit out of the know..... Thank You.
  9. Hello, I am currently attempting to create a dual-OS system on my gaming PC with Windows 10 Pro 64-bit and Windows XP Pro SP3 32-bit. I already have the dual boot setup between both OS and am working on finding drivers for the Windows XP side. The only drivers I currently have are the one for the SATA ACHI connection and the network adapter. The network adapter is a Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller, hardware ID: PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8168&SUBSYS_E0001458&REV_0C. I found a Windows XP supported driver for it and installed it on my system. After rebooting the computer, it installs correctly, and the network icon showed up in the bottom right-hand corner of the task bar. However, when I plugged in the ethernet cord, nothing happened. I tried using a different cord and modem port, still nothing. It does work properly on the Windows 10 side however. Does anyone might know what might be the cause of this? Here are my system specs if it helps: Gigabyte - GA-H110M-A Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard | Intel - Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor |Gigabyte - GeForce GTX 1060 3GB 3GB Windforce OC Video Card | 16 GB DDR4 RAM Also, as a side note, I would appreciate it if any of you could tell me where I can find drivers for my system for Windows XP. They're a bit hard to dig up, what with little official support for it. If you need hardware ID, I can give it to you. Thanks so much for all your help!
