  1. It's been a while since I ran ME on this machine so I couldn't tell you which driver I got it working with, I got my Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 today anyway and it works beautifully in 98!
  2. Yeah I've tried every combination of drivers that dell provided for the ADI and none have worked (although they work in Windows ME, oddly enough) so I think the sound blaster is my best option
  3. I have a Dell Dimension 4600, which came with XP, looking to use it as my main 9x rig. The integrated sound card drivers for Windows 9x don't work, so I've ordered a Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 sound card which should do the job, I'm also looking at getting a cheap AGP card, but that is optional as the motherboard graphics work fine (although only 8mb graphics memory, so gaming might be a bit sluggish). My main worry is the CPU itself, which is a beastly 3.2Ghz, I understand that I'll need to disable hyperthreading, do I need to worry about anything else when running at such a high clock speed? Thanks in advance.
  4. ...are doing? I ask this because it is by far my favourite version of Outlook. I have 2 accounts set up, my personal Gmail and my college email which is on an Exchange server. I don't open any emails that look dodgy (gmail appears to catch most of them anyway) and I'm very careful in general about what I open in Outlook. Am I okay to continue using it past the EOL?
  5. So as the title states, I took ownership of my iTunes folder on my Windows XP partition so I could access my music while using Vista. Now, however, I can't access the folder when I'm using XP. I just get an "Access Denied" message. I tried sharing the folder in vista allowing everyone to get full control but I still cannot access the folder. I hope someone can help! Thanks
  6. So I have a No-CD patch on my Age of Empires game(Don't worry, I do own a legit CD) and just a few minutes ago clicked in to play it. However, I happened to have the Monster Truck Madness game CD in the drive at the time, once the main menu of AoE came up, the Monster truck madness music started playing :L I'm sure this has been discovered before, but I thought it was both an amusing, and interesting occurence! Boy I love retro games
  7. UPDATE: I tried the XP drivers and again it froze at the setup screen, I don't think I'm going to get it working on this laptop Thanks for all your help tomasz86!
  8. It's a cheap stick I got from ebay, so yeah, thought as much, I do remember when using WinToFlash to copy XP onto the stick there was an option to format it as FAT16 LBA and that made it much faster, is there any way of doing that here?
  9. Ok I will, is there anyway to make the WinSetupFromUSB process faster? It took almost an hour to copy the files before.
  10. Well I got the setup onto the USB but when I boot from it the installation freezes at 'Setup is Starting Windows 2000'. When I Google it this page comes up :http://support.microsoft.com/kb/234772 It seems that the SATA drivers are incorrect, should I try to use the Windows XP drivers that I mentioned in an earlier post? EDIT: The SATA drivers are definitely the wrong ones, I tried changing to Standard PC HAL with F5 and I got 0x0000007B BSOD
  11. Okay, I'll try this out tonight! I'll post back when I have results! Thanks for your help! I know, the difference is barely noticeable xD
  12. It's the English version (my flag is the Irish flag, not Italian xD ). Does HFSLIP work just like nLite? I tried to use an 8GB USB Drive already and I kept getting a 'biosinfo.inf could not be loaded' error. Here's the info about the system itself, with the hardware that I would most like to be able to get working under 2k: Compaq CQ56-253SA ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200 series ( PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9712&SUBSYS_1604103C&REV_00 ) AMD SATA AHCI Controller ( PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_4391&SUBSYS_1604103C&REV_00 ) - at the moment using these drivers on XP supplied by HP: http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-Systems-e-g-Windows-8-and-Software/SATA-drivers-for-XP-solution-on-0x0000007B-BSOD/td-p/114120 Atheros AR9285 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter ( PCI\VEN_168C&DEV_002B&SUBSYS_3040103C&REV_01 ) Realtek HD Audio ( HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0270&SUBSYS_103C1604 ) If you need any more info just ask me And thanks for helping me out!
  13. Yeah I found a driver for it but I can't be sure whether it's going to work I guess I'll have to buy a couple of cd/r's just in case How do I turn on enableBigLBA?
