Windows 95C on a ThinkPad T41 - issues
This 14 year-old Pentium M 1.6 GHz/512 MB RAM/40 GB HDD has taken very well to Windows 95, with working audio/MIDI synth, USB bus, and likely Ethernet drivers. I find that performance is superior to 98SE/2000/XP on the hardware.
Unfortunately I've run into a few snags:
1) has anyone ever been able to find a working ATI Mobility Radeon 7500 driver for Windows 95? The ones I've found boot to blank screen or a blue screen citing an invalid dynamic VxD link. I'm using the SDD 7 beta driver, which does work quite well though, except for the obvious 3D hardware acceleration limitations.
2) I can't properly shut down. I am left hanging at the win95 shutdown screen. Even shutting down to DOS never works, leaving me at the blinking underscore. Luckily, forcing a shutdown never results in a forced scandisk upon boot. This issue arose after installing the extended USB supplement.
I would appreciate any assistance with these problems.
