Re: Any others given up on the hobby?

in Milliways
My collection consists of the machines I have built to play games on and parts that I bought to replace pieces I expect to possibly fail at some point in the future. The only other pieces I own are the pieces I bought mistakenly, either because I thought I was going to use them or they ended up not …

Re: ASTVision 5L

Hello, I just picked up an ASTVision 5L 15 inch color monitor for $4 at a local thrift store. It's in pretty good condition. Does anyone know of a good site or link where I may find the user manual for this monitor? Thanks That is an OEMed Daewoo CMC-1502B . I had two issues when I go mine for 500 …

Re: Windows XP/Windows 7/Windows 10 - TRIPLE BOOT - Is It Possible?

in Windows
My approach to multi-booting is to use one boot drive per OS and to use the BIOS' boot drive selection ability to choose which OS to start . This has proven very reliable for me and avoids pretty much all potential issues related to MBR/bootloader over-writing or corruption . It also makes re- …

Re: Windows XP/Windows 7/Windows 10 - TRIPLE BOOT - Is It Possible?

in Windows
You should be able to first install XP, then Win7, then Win10, and let BCD manage it all, on a single drive. Yes indeed, done it (and variations with Vista, 8.1 etc) many times. The only problem is that every time you start XP it'll wipe all of your restore points on the later operating systems. If …

Re: Audigy Platinum EX with Audigy 2 Breakout Box?

Audigy 1 can use 5.25 inch panel from Live!, but you can't use it on Audigy 2. I could only assume same thing applies to breakout box, i.e. you probably can route it to Live! card somehow, but not Audigy 2. Maybe I used the wrong wording for the things. I am referring to the 5.25in drive bays in …

Re: GPT disks on windows XP SP3 (partially solved)

in Windows
If using USB then verify that the drive works in the enclosure on a modern os. The hardware in those enclosures have limitations as well. If it works there with gpt and all the space then make it an mbr with a 2tb partition and try it on the xp machine and troubleshoot from there. I faintly …

Darry I have some initial results for ya. 3megs/sec at 80% cpus usage with usb 3.0 gigabit nic 4.5 megs a second 70% cpus usage with 10/100 pci nic These results are kinda weird. Obviously neither neither the network, the cpus or the pci/usb are saturated. I wonder what is slowing it down... This …

Re: GPT disks on windows XP SP3

in Windows
Other than the potential stability concerns brought up by DosFreak, I would be worried about potential file corruption on a hacked up setup like that . Then there is the issue of speed . A Pentium 1 166MHz server does not seem fast enough to even fully saturate 100Mbps Ethernet with Iperf when used …
