XP Pro on low end comp
Just to answer a question of my own, and for anybody else thinking of doing it. XP Pro works fine on my p3 500, 256 meg of ram. Just make sure you have the latest drivers for all your devices. Oh by the way, where the hell is the favourites folder located in xp, looked every where, can't import my old favourites folder inuntill I know where it is. Any ideas?
Stark Raving MOD
look in c:\documents and settings\username\favorites
btw, your desktop folder is also there.
for better performance, you can also go to my computer properties - advanced - performance - visual effects. choose for best performance and it will look very similar to win2k. if you like all the extra bells and whistles, then just leave it as is.
Mod w/ an attitude
XP Pro will run fine on a Pentium 166 laptop with 104 MB RAM as well. It ain't the fastest, but it does work.
Have you tried w2k on that same laptop? Wondering if it works okay as well.
Got a amd k6/2 333 laptop with 96 RAM im thinking of loading w2k on, not sure of results.
Running 98se now, seems like w2k be a bit better, slower be fine
Struggled with XP PRO for a week, got sick of hardware issues, XP very hard on older drivers, could not get updated drivers for some of my devices. So went back to Win ME, so far no prob's.
Oh by the way, I did turn all the bells and whistles off. On a low end machine, not much speed gain on ME or 98SE.
Will save XP until I upgrade to a newer system!
Spook, not a good idea to hang on the the XP Disk. I think you should sell it to me real cheap.
