    Hmmmmmmmm

    Wonder if Agg's up to the task of creating an OCAU enterprise we can all join for keys?

    I'd be more open to 10 if it wasn't a spying, adware infested pile of bloat.

    Sadly that's what the LTSB fixes, and is what most of the Win7 current holdouts would switch to.
    Which I think Microsoft knows so is preventing most people from migrating to.Which makes no sense to not offer a product that people want to buy...

    Wow, Windows 7 users should feel utterly ripped off.

    Discovered recently that 32bit POSReady XP support only ended a couple of months ago (April 9, 2019). Good thing 99% of the updates also worked fine on 32bit XP Home and Pro with a teeny tiny registry entry. Although the very last one has broken Windows Update, I suspect that's no great loss. Updated my deployment image and rolling it out on the dual P3 now!

    Wonder why Abit died? They were leaders there for a while.

    Was it your BP6 I lapped the celerons for?
    That was a nice picture, twin full copper lapped mirror polished celerons :leet:
    There must have been four or five BP6s rolling through UniSA days of Valhalla. Powah plus plus.

    Abit certainly lead on BIOS features and overclocking options, not to mention whacko boards like the BP6. Unfortunately, like many of their contemporaries, the noughties capacitor plague cost them dearly. Add in some talent poaching (where do you think DFI LanParty came from) and dodgy administration and poof, away she went...

    Oh, bit of a gotcha. POSReady modded XP Pro runs fine in the DEV VM and the Core2, but is buggy as shit on the P3. Methinks Microsoft updated something to need newer CPU features (SSE2?) and haven't regression tested properly. Although to be fair, who was using a P3 in 2009 when POSReady was released, and what lunatic is STILL using one? :Paranoid:

    Same old reasons as always.

    1) There's no money in enthusiast markets. (Don't get angry at me - there's more money in selling boring shit to low end people and snore-worthy corporates than all of PCMasterRace combined).

    2) they got bought out by a bigger company, switched to making more profitable things, became a part of a larger beast.

    Nah. Not mine. I never cared enough to do that back then - and can you really blame me when the bastards were perfectly stable, overclocked with the stock HS without a fan plugged in?
    Did I ever comb my hair with them in front of you? That was always a laugh. The looks on people's faces!


    If you're really feeling tricksy, find the new opcodes since the p3 and search the unzipped patches for the hex. But if you're lazy, just install the actual posready on the p3, patch it up and see if it's still unstable. If you're even lazier, install it on a VM on the c2 but on a raw "ide" hdd and boot it on the p3.



    Looks like they merged - to chase the 'appliance' market.

    yeah these guys were quick, Asus CUV4X-D? Quick was right but Via also meant unstable.

    Via chipset's weren't the best in the day, but from memory Intel had no dual CPU offerings @ 133 Mhz FSB?

    No Asus CUV4X-D as my processors were Slot 1, I used a server board mounted in a standard chassis.
