I had the same problems with a P3 dell a few years back. It's in the way they make the boot menu- If I remember correctly a USB was the only way I could get it to boot(use a usb port in the back)

Here is the one I use for USB windows creation. I couldn't remember the name before, it's Wintoflash http://wintoflash.com/download/en/

Just mount the iso to copy to usb. Hopefully that will work.

Also I think you could boot to a dos with dvd drivers and run the .EXE off the disk, run it from Live Windows XP off of the Hirens dvd, or maybe even use "WinNTSetup " off of Hirens(I never tried it before)

Otherwise maybe it will boot a cd- you could mount the 10-in-1 dvd and create an iso and burn to a CD instead of  a DVD, Create it with the windows version you want to try. The instructions are in the Experience.txt-

Aren't old computers fun :) !! :censored:

Actually, I can run XP through Hirens and I can see the disk in file explorer.  I can navigate the contents no problem.

What is maddening is that I cannot figure out what to do next.  There is no "install.exe" or "autorun" or anything.  There is a "Spinrite.exe" but I don't think that is what I want (although, at this point I could try it).  I seem so close to being able to make it work, but it still doesn't.   :hissy:

I'm not sure if anyone here mentioned MicroXP, but I use it and it runs extremely well. Boots in approximately 12 seconds, great install! I think the most it supports is DirectX 9 though so keep that in mind.

Just to close the loop for future generations.  I never could get this to work right.  I don't think it had anything to do with the software, but with the combination of the software with my particular old hardware.

But on the bright side I did use it as evidence to persuade the wife to let me upgrade the PC in my cab.   :cheers:

I'm still going to dig out that dell that does the same thing in the basement. I quickly looked at the tinyxp iso and am not sure what the "install" program was either.  Then you can throw the old pc into another project!

LOL, I am here.

Actually the newest version of TinyXp is good. They resolved the problems that previously bothered me, and added driverpacks - what more could you ask for ? The author also makes a Tiny7.

Or you can use BlackViper's guide to disabling services to make any Windows OS "Tiny", post install:

What I've recently discovered that is so nice is the DriverPacks Solution - it's a DVD you run after installing an OS, it installs all the drivers. Grab the DVD torrent here :

Feel free to ask any questions :)

I've looked for the tinyxp OS but I've found many versions of it. What do you recommend?
Thanks!

I believe it's TinyXP Rev12 by "eXPer1ence". I looked before and had trouble finding it alone. It came in an  "Windows XP 2003 eXPerience Edition October 2011" DVD with micro and hirens on it.

He has his own forum, apparently :

http://retestrak.nl/board/index.php?/forum/32-experiences-lab/

And I think the newest version is called "Windows XP 2003 eXPerience Edition (October 2011)", current as of April 15 2013.

I will say eXperience's builds of XP are outstanding. I bought the full blown bloated XP once and learned my lesson. Now I run his stuff exclusively. And have been for about 7 yrs. His builds are rock solid and lightning fast. Highly recommended.

LOL, I guess "Windows XP 2003 eXPerience Edition (October 2011)" makes this entire thread obsolete. Unless one wants to do it all the long way. Windows services, Nlite. Driverpacks.

Does anyone know if the MicroXP version from Windows XP 2003 eXPerience Edition is enough to run emulators and Hyperspin?

Just to follow this up, I installed MicroXP last night and after some fiddling - which I'm not finished with yet as I've not tested everything - I managed to get Hypersin working (specifically, the Hyperlaunch side) with at least Fusion and ZSNES, but only after I'd installed .NET Frameworks 1.1, 3.5 (+ SP1) and 4, and a C++ distributable I can't remember the full name of. In particular, if you've not installed the 3.5 SP1 .NET frameworks then Hyperlaunch won't be able to launch it's hyperlaunch.dll (this flummoxed me for a bit). 4.0 is needed for HyperLaunchHQ, and I don't remember fully what 1.1 was or but it was for something!

Thank you, please keep us (me?) updated.

 :soapbox: RANT - I hate nothing more than when a question is posted that I was curious about. Then the OP gets and answer himself or else where and doesn't share.

just wondering if you can install an nlited build on a new partition, thus keeping the full os install on the original partition and then test the nlited build to see if it does everything you need it to do and then delete the full os or the nlited build depending on how testing goes???

I haven't tried windows 7 in any emulator  benchmarking way, but from what I've been reading there might be no difference if any (maybe worse) in a stripped windows 7 install. Performance supposedly is good as long as you turn off unused services. I was looking for this before & he has some good settings for all windows xp, 64, 7 & 8 and can make a "tool" to do them automatically!
