I think I'll stick with a period correct OS. I have a copy of BackOffice Server 4.5 -- per the description:

Includes Windows NT Server 4.0 SP4, Internet Information Services 4.0, Microsoft SQL Server 7.0, Microsoft SNA Server 4.0 SP2, Microsoft SMS 2.0, Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5 SP2, Microsoft Proxy Server 2.0, Microsoft Index Server 2.0, Microsoft Transaction Server 2.0, Internet Explorer 5.0, Microsoft FrontPage 2000, and Microsoft Visual InterDev 6.0.
*BackOffice Server 4.5 with 1 server license and 5 clients access licenses (CAL) was marketed for US$675. It required 2 GB minimum hard drive space, a minimum processor type of Pentium Pro 200 MHz, and a minimum RAM size of 128 MB.

Seems to meet the specifications perfectly. I might bump up the RAM to 256MB.

Nice project, exactly my cup of cofee, congratulation!
Yes, during the time I learned some time it's good to check the soldering with mag. glass at good light, I also had some stories with improperly soldered pins or solder bridges between pins...

It remembers me still having an Asus P/I-P65UP5 MB with dead dual socket C-P6ND CPU card waiting for repair. The MB was tested with different CPU card and works. On CPU card I checked the VRM and clock generators works fine, I resoldered all chipset pins but didn't help. I suspect the chipset is some way damaged. I got this card already in dead state so I don't know what had happened to it. When I'll have a chacne to get another chipset from some donor board for reasonable price I'll replace it...

BTW I have recently found a cool russian forum
https://smd.db-x7.ru/load/skhemy_materinskikh_plat/283
that contains a lot of schematics of motherboards, even quite modern ones like my Gigabyte GA-P67-DS3-B3 and GA-P67A-D3-B3. This helps a lot for HW modding and repair.
