  1. [backstory] A customer brought in a Dell Latitude D510 laptop. Apparently their kid was playing and ended up in the BIOS and locked the BIOS and encrypted the HDD. I managed to clear the bios password and replace the HDD. Called customer to tell them they would need to purchase a copy of windows as the COA was missing from the bottom. They said no and they would be picking up as is. They never did. Fast forward a year later I find it again sitting on a shelf. In case someone thinks I'm stealing it the drop off paperwork I use does say any property left after 30 days from date of finished repair is considered abandoned. [/backstory] Now on to the main event. The specs are Intel Celeron-m 1.5GHz 2GB DDR2 60GB ATA/66 HDD Intel ICH6 chipset Broadcom 4401/b0 NIC Intel Pro Wireless 2000BG AC97 sound SigmaTel 9750 Intel 915GM Graphics First Phase of Installation had no problems and completed as expected. On first reboot I interrupted the startup and dropped to DOS and edited System.ini and added MaxPhysPage=20000 and MaxFileCache=16384 saved and continued the install which completed normally. Updated IE to 5.5 and patched with OSR2SP1 and XUSBSUPP. Now the search for drivers. Thanks to in part to the people here I was able to drivers for almost everything. Video: I'm using the Scitech Display Doctor 7.0 beta. Audio: Found on MSFN in Device Manager labeled as Avance AC'97 for Intel Audio Controller Network:There was no Windows 95 driver for this card but I managed to use the DOS ODI driver works with no problems so far. Correct me if I'm wrong but there is no 95 drivers for Firewire, IPW2200, and USB 2.0? Problems & Quirks: After installing SDD drivers I can't restart to DOS. Because I'm using the ODI diver I still have a unknown ethernet in Device Manager. Even with the XUSBSUPP my USB Drives don't show up. Luckily the BIOS with USB Emulation turned on it shows up as a regular HDD in explorer. I have to disable secondary IDE channel to get rid of a ! on it and to be able to enable DMA. This disables the CDROM in Windows maybe loading a DOS CDROM driver before Windows starts would give me access but I haven't missed it.
  2. Using real-mode (aka "DOS")-LAN-Drivers in W98SE?

    Not using that card but I wanted to confirm that DOS ODI drivers do work in 95C. The card I'm using is the Broadcom 4401/B0 chip. the only extra steps before install I had to do was add the driver B44.com and support file LSL.com and optionally ODIPKT.com to the Autoexec.bat and during the setup select existing ODI driver.
  3. Windows 95 AC'97 Drivers

    Hate to bump a old thread but I just wanted to say because of the drivers linked here and modifying the INF I was finally able to get sound out of my Dell Latitude D510 which was the only thing that I was dual booting with XP. So thanks
  4. Have you looked at Classilla? http://www.floodgap.com/software/classilla/ It's an updated Mozilla suite for MacOS 9 I know the interface code would be useless but maybe they've already fixed or backported code we could reuse?
  5. Hang on Shutdown

    I just installed XP64 and it works great except that it hangs on shutdown. It stops at the blue screen and I still have a pointer. Pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del does nothing at that point. It's almost like in 9x when system doesn't support soft power off and get it is safe to turn off your computer. If I force off at that point there are no problems on the next boot. I checked the event log and found nothing related
  6. Can't decide on OS

    I'm using a HP Probook 6550b specs are Intel Core i5-460m 6GB DDR3 120GB SSD and a 320GB HDD. I believe it's a ICH5 chipset. I con't decide on what OS I want to run. From HP it has a full set of Drivers for XP, Vista, and Windows 7. It will also run XP 64 bit because the XP drivers had both 32 and 64 bit in the same package. The computer came with Windows 7 Pro, I upgraded to Windows 10 Pro. I have a XP, XP 64bit licenses that I haven't used. Which OS will give me flexibility to legacy programs and won't over work the hardware?
  7. Thanks for the references. So using the win2k ntldr and ntdetect.com should be enough then. On the side side I'll use Norton Speeddisk and have it put ntoskrnl.exe at the front of the drive
  8. Would using NTLDR AND NTDETECT.COM from Win2k along with uniata driver overcome the limit or is it a hard limit of the OS
  9. I know this is a old thread but I wanted to confirm that changing MonitorFromWindow to GetAppCompatFlags in the 9.0.280 plugin allows it to run on NT4 and with it youtube does work as of this morning where the 9.0.47 plugin does not
  10. Resolution missing in XP that is in 98SE

    I wanted to see if this problem was a driver issue or an OS one so I installled Windows 2000 Professional SP4. Under Win2K I am able to set the resolution to 1400x1050 with no problems. Something changed between 2K and XP in the way the OS handles unsupported resolutions. I think I will just stick with 2K+USP5 and the BWC kernel should run everything I need with a small footprint
  11. Resolution missing in XP that is in 98SE

    Apparently my graphics chip is one generation too old for the DTD Calculator(already had dotnet installed for nlite) and the information contained in the link. At this point looks like I may have to just deal with not having that resolution in XP. Unless anyone else has some ideas. I spend most of my time in 98 anyhow. XP is basically just websites that don't like FF 3.6/FF 10-ESR

    Or both the 7zip has the original 24bit bitmap http://imgur.com/9s6kbyD win98.7z
  13. Resolution missing in XP that is in 98SE

    No. Meaning that a LCD monitor has no "max resolution", it has only a "native resolution" or "recommended resolution", which sometimes is improperly referred to as "max resolution". Any "display mode" but that one will be an "interpolated/calculated" one, in practice it will be less sharp and very likely (unless you keep a resolution with the same 1600:900 or 16:9 ratio) it will be "stretched" or "deformed". See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Native_resolution http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/159029-monitors-for-win98se/ http://www.cnet.com/products/asus-vh202t-p-lcd-monitor-20/specs/ You can use dumpedid: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/dump_edid.html to check the resolutions your monitor supports (still there will only be a "native" one, 1600x900 in your case that dumpedid calls "Maximum Resolution" ) jaclaz THis is the output from dumpedid DumpEDID v1.05Copyright (c) 2006 - 2015 Nir SoferWeb site: http://www.nirsoft.net*****************************************************************Active : YesRegistry Key : DISPLAY\ACI20A4\4&ec303c9&0&80861100&00&02Monitor Name : ASUS VH202Serial Number : ABLMTF072889Manufacture Week : 46 / 2010ManufacturerID : 26884 (0x6904)ProductID : 8356 (0x20A4)Serial Number (Numeric) : 72889 (0x00011CB9)EDID Version : 1.3Display Gamma : 2.20Vertical Frequency : 55 - 75 HzHorizontal Frequency : 30 - 85 KHzMaximum Image Size : 44 X 25 cm (19.9 Inch)Maximum Resolution : 1600 X 900Support Standby Mode : NoSupport Suspend Mode : NoSupport Low-Power Mode : YesSupport Default GTF : NoDigital : NoSupported Display Modes : 720 X 400 70 Hz 640 X 480 60 Hz 640 X 480 67 Hz 640 X 480 72 Hz 640 X 480 75 Hz 800 X 600 56 Hz 800 X 600 60 Hz 800 X 600 72 Hz 800 X 600 75 Hz 832 X 624 75 Hz 1024 X 768 60 Hz 1024 X 768 70 Hz 1024 X 768 75 Hz 1152 X 864 75 Hz 1600 X 900 60 Hz*****************************************************************
  14. Resolution missing in XP that is in 98SE

    I am using the VGA connector, don't have a DVI video card at the moment to test with. The image is only 1200x900? This is getting even more confusing than before Windows Paint says 1400x1050, the monitor's internal menu say 1680x1050, and now you guys are saying the images are only 1200x900 Windows 98 Paint showing the image properties as 1400x1050 Windows XP Explorer showing 1400x1050 as the image size aswell
