Thread: Windows Os

  1. #1


    I need a version of Windows 95.

    I have an old Packard Bell (266mhz with 32mbs DIMM)

    and a

    Compaq (266mhz with 48mb SIMMS)

    both have sad memory cards maybe 2mb's each.

    But anyway I was wondering if anyone any sites for old OS's

    (other then the site Old OS)

    TY B)

    IMO, both machines are not that bad.
    You can use them for surfing and almost everything.
    I prefer the one from Packard Bell.
    Try to fit them with 64MB and install Win98SE.(doing a custom install, of
    course) and It will run smoothly, just disable wallpapers, screen savers, animated cursors, destktop themes and get a clean startup too.
    I personally have a 233, 128MB with runs very fast and I use it
    for surfing, downloads, uploads and listening music.
    No complains about its performance.

    Good Luck.

    I've seen old versions of Windows at Computer shows.
    Not often, but I've seen them. Picked up several years ago a W3.1 and Word Perfect 5.1.

    I'm running win98se on a Digital Equipment 5100 with a 233mhz clock and 192meg ram. Bios harddrive limit is 8gig but with a Promise ultra 66 card it can handle 128gig drives. The ultra 66 card has two ide connectors that handle a master/slave pair each ( four drives ) . The computers own Motherboard ide connectors are still available giving a total of 8 drive capacity. The CDrom Reader and CDrom Burner are on the Motherboard ide connectors. Currently have a Bigfoot 11gig harddrive installed with win98se installed four times into four different partitions using System Commander and a couple other utilities to do it. A second harddrive is installed for storage. The reason for this setup is that CD Burner programs ( Nero, NTI, Primo etc ) can only be installed one per operating system ( I had crashes when I tried to install NTI and Nero on the same OS ). This warning is poorly documented and only saw it one time, when I received Primo.

    I need the instructions for System Commander. They were not with System Commander when I received it. I was able to get it to work but with the instructions I'm shure it would be easier than the razzmatazz I went through ( reformated the harddrive, after it crashed, at least 18 times ) before I got it to do what I wanted.
