  • I’d compare with the system that doesn’t have issues. Are there cards in the system or is everything onboard? If possible perhaps try removing cards or moving them to different slots.
  • Sometimes you can go into device manager and change the resources used by PCI devices. If you can figure out what's conflicting, maybe you can choose options that are better than what the plug and play BIOS is choosing on it's own.
  • when the floppy boots do you see it loading cdrom drivers?
  • I've got 2 or 3 Dell Optiplex GX270, which I'm pretty sure have the same chipset, and windows 98 works fine. I did have to search out drivers for other stuff, because win98 was never officially supported by Dell. I'll fire one up when I get home a…
  • If you can get it to boot with the channel disabled, do that and then try installing the intel inf installer. Some versions might call it the chipset installation utility or something like that. That should load the chipset drivers it needs. Then …
  • Did you get this message after booting from a floppy or were you booting from a CD?
  • I’ve got two copies of it on 3.5” one is an OEM 2 disk set and one is retail, I think, on 3 disks, but the retail set is missing disk 2. It might be possible to recreate using the 360k disks on this site, until someone can dump a complete set.

  • It looks like your copy and my copy have the same number of files on CD 1, but the CRC is different. I ran windiff and the following files are different (L: is where I mounted your ISO and D are my files: .\readaxp.htm different (L:\ is more r…
  • The downloads I was given for it have folders labeled cd1 and cd2, so I assume at one time they were CDs, but maybe just in the MSDN collection since that’s how they used to come out. I’m not 100% sure. I also don’t know exactly how everything was p…
  • I think I’ve also got the downloaded copy of Visual Basic.
  • Does the one here not work? https://winworldpc.com/product/visual-c/6x I’ve got a copy of it, but it’s not an ISO, it was downloaded for me by a coworker years ago from the MSDN website.
  • I don’t think windows supports mounting floppy images. You’ll need to use something like winimage to write them to a floppy, or use whatever virtual machine and the floppy mounting provided with that.

  • When starting setup, select F7 to install to floppy. Depending on how big your floppy is will determine what you get on it. Or do it manually. Format /s (then delete drvspace.bin if nothing is compressed) and then copy what you want to the floppy…

  • I had a T61p, T420s, and currently a P51 at work. I’ve never had any major issues with any of them. I use my laptops to service customer equipment, onsite in their data centers, so I’m constantly taking them in and out of my backpack, opening and cl…
  • Most (maybe all?) of the archives are 7zip. So you'll want that to unpack them. Then most floppy images can be written to disk with something like winimage. If there is something special needed to write them, there is usually some indication eith…
  • Tell him they are cheaper than drugs and alcohol. Just kiddin' If he's talking about how efficient it is, it sounds like he's missing the point, and perhaps you need to explain it to him a little bit better. The "vintage computer" hobby isn't a…
  • Is 1993 a typo? I’ve got a compaq portable from ten years before that, 1983. In the 1990s and early 2000s and probably all the way until today, there was a very big difference between business machines and home machines. Compaq deskpro have almost…
  • You're going to need to give us a few more details. What stuff do you want to install? DOS? Windows? Wordperfect? What do you want to install it on? Real vintage hardware? New hardware? Virtual machines?
  • I’d be tempted to get that floppy lot, but then that would be the 3rd copy of Microsoft Flight Simulator 3.0 I’d own.
  • I was looking for windows 95 on floppy on eBay and I saw two copies of Windows 95, in Spanish, on floppy. One was a full version, one an upgrade. I think they were both OEM, not sure of the version. There is a compaq OEM version on CD for like $1…
  • Is it ATX? If so, these power on using a signal from the motherboard, so make sure that the power button is connected to the motherboard. Also, some ATX power supplies have a power switch as well, but you still need to get the power on signal from…
  • you can use mega.nz or dropbox. I think dropbox does 2gb for free and mega does 50gb.
  • Oh that makes sense. The copy of Dr Halo I have is on Emerson floppies and one of them is a mouse driver too, so I guess it was also bundled, but with an Emerson brand mouse.
  • I've got one from Media Cybernetics called Dr. Genius. It was with a pile of disks that also included Dr. Halo, so it may be related. I haven't had a chance to try installing it anywhere yet to see what it's like. Have you guys heard of it before?
  • Try using diskpart from the windows command line. Do list disk, to find the sd card disk number. Then select disk 4 (or whatever the number was, don’t select the wrong disk, especially not your HDD) and then do clean. That should wipe the card compl…
  • What camera is it? Or what format does it put on the card? Once you determine that, try formatting the card in your computer with the same file system and see if the camera will write to it. Perhaps windows just doesn’t like the way the camera fo…
  • A dirty disk is a dirty disk, kryoflux won’t fix that. When using the format guided dumps it does do retries on bad sectors, which might help, but other software can do this too. If you do the regular stream copy, it will probably be worse with a di…
  • Most people that have bad opinions of 64bit vs 32bit performance are basing that on experiences from when 64bit X86 first came out. Those comparisons usually had all kinds of things wrong with them. First of all, lots of people first experienced 64b…
  • I’m assuming, and I might be wrong, that there is replication that will happen eventually. I’m guessing the admin just uploads the file to one site, maybe whichever is faster for him, and so that’s where it shows up first.
  • The CD will make a boot disk. Some OSR2 disks didn’t even come with a floppy, but instead came with a label for the one that you made.
