    Set the hard drive to IDE, set back your BIOS date, and use older compatibility if running VMWare.

  • You should use 7zip instead. It's free, it's for Linux, Mac and Windows and it's better opening and extracting files than what you are currently using

    I agree. You can also use WinRAR or WinZIP too.

  • When I log into the admin account which is the only account on your first startup on 6.0.4029.0, I get redirected back to User Account Login. Is this a known bug and is there a fix to this?

    You probably didn't set the BIOS date before install. Reinstall and set the BIOS date.

    I can't find how I would do that in Oracle Virtualbox.

  • I still have the same problem.

  • Be sure to also run +VBoxManage setextradata "My Virtual Machine" "VBoxInternal/Devices/VMMDev/0/Config/GetHostTimeDisabled" 1+ without the pluses to disable time sync.

  • I did both and it still doesn’t work. If we need to I can use TeamViewer.

    As a last resort when builds don't work, use QEMU or 86Box to install them.

  • The problem here is the bios date, one way round the problem is to install on VirtualBox, on top of MS DOS 6.22, the iso of which is freely available. Build and name a new machine as Type: Microsoft Windows, Version: Windows XP 32bit and run through all the default settings. When it's created, go to Settings, Storage and put the MS DOS iso in the drive, then start the machine. When DOS appears, type "date" (without the inverted commas), press enter and you'll be prompted to enter a new date. At this point you'll need to enter the bios date of the build you're installing, they're all easily found on Google. You need to enter the date like this, MM-DD-YYYY and press enter. Then go back to Settings, Storage and put the Longhorn iso into the drive, click on the machine and select reset. The machine will then start the install at a date 16 or so years ago. When the install's finished, you'll have your build up and running. DON'T install Guest Additions, as this will reset your OS date to today's date, just adjust your screen resolution via the Control Panel. Lastly DON'T power off your machine, this will also reset your date to today's date. When you've finished playing, close the machine, but select "Save the machine state", this will preserve your install at the bios date.......Enjoy!

  • Or even better, just use VMware to install pre-reset builds. If you're lucky, you might even get working DCE/DWM on builds like 3683-4001, 4011, 4015, 4039, 4042, 4066, and 4074.

    Not all PCs can run VMWare really smooth

    Idk Why It Isnt .ZIP AND IT IS .7Z the reason im mad is because i use 8zip lite and it takes forever to extract a 7z file

    7z and Zip are two fundamentally different archive formats. The reason WinWorld uses 7-zip is that it has better compression; that is, allows you to fit more files into a smaller space. Granted, 7-zip files (especially ones >1GB or so) will take a while to extract on lower-tier systems. What are your CPU and RAM?

    Also, you're better off using the official 7-zip app from 7-zip.org rather than a Windows Store version such as 8-zip, as these other apps could be based on older, slower versions of 7-zip.

  • Windows Store is just android garbage ported to windows

  • I have problem.
    When Longhorn (Bulid 4015) on Virtual Box is boot pops up statement CDBOOT: Couldn't find NTLDR

    Quoting from BetaWiki: "Most copies of this build's CD are not bootable due to corruption, since it results in an NTLDR is missing error, and in that case it can only be upgraded from an earlier build. "
