  1. I noted you have a list of boards/chipsets known to run Windows 98: and was wondering if there is a similar list here for Windows 2000? I've already found such a list at Microsoft site, but its very outdated, and does not seem to mention any AMD chipsets. I've been told that the key to finding boards that support any legacy OS is through the southbridge chipsets.
  2. Short version NO, long version maybe,maybe, maybe something similar created around intel chipset P31, P43, G43, Q43 can work using user made drivers of our Czech friend, but there is no warranty. It is end of 2011. We are not in position to choose MBO for our Windows 98 SE computer !? Many thanks for the tip! I'll Google the chipsets then check Gigabyte site that list all their DualBIOS boards. Unfortunately, Asus don't seem to have any list of their DieHard BIOS boards, so may have to skip that brand.
  3. Sorry, but the try it and see approach is not a good option. Doing a custom-build, and once its done, its finished for better or worse (i.e. no switching parts, upgrades, etc.), so either OS works or it gets left behind...but trying my best to pick hardware that will work. Yes, that's the link I was referring to; is there any similar link for Windows 2000 Professional (workstation) hardware? Would like to include that OS in build as well.
  4. CPU is never problem, but real problem is MBO. From MBO documentation strongest CPU which is working with Windows 98 SE is: Phenom II X4 3500MHz which if we can believe to AsRock will work in combination with AM2NF3-VSTA. and 16 GB RAM (limited by user to 1 GB in Windows 98) Excellent! I'm hoping to only buy either Gigabyte 'DualBIOS' or Asus 'Diehard BIOS' motherboard...do you know if any of these will work with Phenom II X4 3500MHz, and keep Windows 98 happy.
  5. I noted in your hardware list that AMD Phenom II x6 1075T is not listed...are you sure this will not run Windows 98?
  6. Found this forum via Google while researching nLite! Looks to be a necessity, so joined on the spot.
