    Any version of Windows from Vista on will not run well on 2 GB of memory.

    I think you're confusing SD for CF card, which is basically IDE. SD cards use a completely different SPI interface and protocol.

    It's why SD to IDE adapters require a complex interface chip while...

    It could be a recycled 386 motherboard design slightly modified to support 486 CPUs. Most 386 motherboards had an oscillator that ran twice the host CPU clock.

    The PDS to Nubus adapter doesn't include a 601 on it.

    And I'm pretty sure most CPU upgrades supplant the host CPU entirely, though there are a few that allow you to turn it off via a control panel...

    Uses the same codebase as Windows XP, still won't work.

    The 486 is missing CMPXCHG8b and CPUID, under no circumstance will it run Windows XP.

    The only way to have a 486 system run Windows XP is to use a POD63/83, which is essentially a modified Pentium...

    Socket 8 motherboards are getting harder to come by. I've had two 200 MHz Pentium Pros I pulled from a dead Acer server about 20 years ago, but no board to use them in.

    Early versions of Fedora and Ubuntu were pretty lenient on the hardware they'd run on. RHEL 9 was I think the last free version and it ran on really old hardware.
  9. The analog signal going through S-Video is NOT a...

    The analog signal going through S-Video is NOT a defined standard. S-Video has a theoretical bandwidth limit of around 4 MHz, that's it. You can literally toss any analog signal on an S-Video cable,...

    And? It's still not a defined standard, which is why a CRT monitor can work at weird resolutions that no modern LCD can tolerate. Case and point, again, the Atari 65XE 320x192 resolution; It's miles...

    ATX power supplies have all of the voltages AT power supplies have, minus the -5v rail. ATX power supplies did at one time have the -5v rail, but this was removed from the ATX spec sometime in...

    S-Video is an analog signal and has no hard defined resolution standard. Case and point, the Atari 65XE has a resolution of 320x192, which can be much less when accounting for overscan. S-Video...

    The Windows 9x installer has command line switches to bypass certain checks of the system and allow it to install. There's one for hardware, another for RAM and a few more to bypass certain things...

    No, it doesn't.

    68040 uses ~4-8W depending on clock speed

    PPC 601 uses 6W at 50 MHz, 7W at 66 MHz and 9W at 80 MHz. It then drops back down to 6W at 100 MHz due to process improvements.

    At...

    You can run Windows 98SE on a 386 by bypassing the system checks, it's just painfully slow.

    The requirement in Windows XP is concrete, it's required by the kernel, HAL, boot loader, etc.

    They tested the 6x86 and they confirm CPUID and...

    The last version of Windows to support "lesser" CPUs is Windows 2000.

    Windows XP will not install on anything older than a Pentium because it requires CPUID and CMPXCHG8b. This rules out Cyrix's...

    Intel more or less repeated this mess with the Netburst Celeron.

    While Netburst Celeron processors did have cache, the Netburst architecture was so heavily dependent on cache, that even the...

    I have one engineering sample Pentium 4 that I found in a second hand store PC years ago. It worked until I accidentally bent one of the pins when I was trying to clean it.

    I'd only recommend a SATA to IDE adapter as a last resort, they can be a mixed bag. I've had varying rates of success with them, ranging from working to not working to massive disk corruption....

    When there are strings attached to EISA being able to share IRQs, it's best just to treat it like bog standard ISA where it's not possible.

    Sharing IRQs between EISA and PCI is just begging for...

    EISA is an extension of ISA, you cannot share IRQs between cards, ESPECIALLY disk controllers.

    I'd recommend a PCIe card with a JMicron IDE controller. They're like Realtek and have drivers for literally everything, and their controllers are very good.

    I had a similar issue several years...

    The only suggestion I have is use an older version of Windows.

    Windows 2000 was the last version of Windows to have any EISA support, and it was pretty minimal at that. EISA was already 12 years...

    I have seen one SX/2-66 in my lifetime and nothing since.



    OS/2 isn't really a valid compatibility test, it had long since been dead by the time Transmeta had CPUs out in the mid 2000s.
