  1. Printer Software for HP Deskjet

    Hmmm. You must have a sorta of obsession with that particolar make/model jaclaz
  2. Running Windows 98 in 2017...

    Sure, via CUPS, but that would be a "Print Server": https://pimylifeup.com/raspberry-pi-print-server/ Not entirely unlike what you do with a TCP/IP or LPR port on Windows NT series OS's or with a hardware print server. jaclaz
  3. Many days I haven’t seen this

    ... must be either a part time complicated job or a partially complicated job , I would exclude English grammar teaching, however . jaclaz
  4. It seems like your case has nothing to do with the specific failure(s) discussed in this thread, You are seemingly the unlucky owner of one of the worst hard disks of all times : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ST3000DM001 reportedly those drives simply fail, after some time, in the highest percentages ever recorded. These failures can - in some cases only - be repaired by professionals, no DIY available, jaclaz
  5. WinNTSetup v3.8.8.3

    I.e. much more than what you manually measured? Or do you have 3/4th of a whole minute in reaction time? jaclaz
  6. My guess is that it is a "lost cause". If possible at all, I would suggest however that instead of the stupid empty blue screen there could be the possibility to have a message like: And the word for today is: http://www.dictionary.com/browse/consistency in the meanings #2 and #3, jaclaz
  7. Sure, you are right: 5) Do you have a console? Go for a gaming console OS jaclaz
  8. Oww, come on , they were so much different that a few hex edits changed the one into the other, you talk like you never knew that NTtune, NTSwitch or TweakNT existed. Don't worry, all links to the tools are invalid now: http://smallvoid.com/article/winnt-upgrade-server.html And differences from XP Home and XP Professional? (I mean the missing security tab/SCM which could be enabled by using a NT 4.x freely downloadable from ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/bussys/winnt/winnt-public/ ) Now from XP to Server 2003 they actually made some differences, but then how much different is XP64 from Server 2003 64 bit? And don't forget all the stupid memory accessible artificially limited in Vista and later .... jaclaz
  9. Still, it is the same, usual bull§hit from MS marketing department, that contributes only to confuse users/customers and allow the existence of (highly paid) third party consultants. Four main cases 1) Do you have a server? Go for a Server OS. 2) Do you have a desktop or "full size" laptop? Go for a desktop OS. 3) Do you have a tablet or touch netbook? Go for a tablet OS. 4) Do you have a smartphone? Go for a smartphone OS. The good MS guys tried initially to convey the idea that one single OS was good for #2, #3 and #4, then they removed #4 altogether (and all the related bull§hit, including the "Continuum" experience) and now, while all the rest of the world easily understood that #2 and #3 are NOT the same thing, they insist that #2 and #3 are the same thing, BUT that #2 should be divided in #2a, #2b and #2c .... jaclaz
  10. Well, historically the good MS guys failed at it (after the re-unification with XP), but you seem like more in a conspiracy theory than anything else, there is an official announcement (in late August): https://blogs.windows.com/business/2017/08/10/microsoft-announces-windows-10-pro-workstations/ (which BTW also explains why they are ripping away ReFS from "normal" Windows ) Basically new machines with the "right" kind of processor will be sold with the new "higher end OS", those with same level hardware can buy an upgrade, see: https://www.uk.insight.com/en-gb/shop/microsoft/software/microsoft-windows/microsoft-windows-10-pro In a nutshell it is IMHO not about "Microsoft also would like to stop people from purchasing mis-matched configuration, which is common." but more "How can we extract a few more bucks from either the OEM or the final user in exchange of next to nothing". jaclaz
  11. Best Hypervisor for Windows 98

    Why not reading posts before replying? jaclaz
  12. JFYI: Don't try to cry and Try not to cry have very different meaning in English. jaclaz
  13. NTFS support in Win 98/SE/ME?

    More than "Spanish", it is the (free) ro (Read Only version), that you can find everywhere, The actual Commercial version was from Winternals (the Commercial company connected with Sysinternals): https://web.archive.org/web/20070526051602/www.sysinternals.com/Utilities/NtfsWindows98.html jaclaz
  14. I do . The grown up cat looks nice . And this constitutes proof that at least one person exists that buys software and does not use it, not even to test it or to make sure - within the return period - that the media actually works, a single data point, I know, but still it is good to know. jaclaz
  15. Just in case, and for no apparent reason, another Apple link: http://images.apple.com/legal/sla/docs/osx_snow_leopard_sec_upd.pdf Point 2.A) might have some relevance: (bolding is mine) jaclaz
