    Hello,

    I managed to run Windows 8.1 on an old P4.

    I would like to install Windows 10 Insider Preview 10122 the same way.

    But I cannot find iso. In torrent, no source and the links on the forum are dead.

    Do you have a solution?

    I failed to run Windows 8.1 on an Athlon XP 1600+ (Palomino).

    There is a way to do more or it is impossible?

    Cordially

    I tried the build 10061.
    I can not install it. Either direct extraction of the esd file to hdd or esd to wim.
    There is a trick?

    Hi guys,
    I tried this method to run win8 on an old Dell laptop with pentium M cpu currently running xp sp3 . when I try to use J1 w8patch to remove Nx check it says: "patch failed: patch location not found"
    I already took ownership and full control of ntoskrnl.exe but no success.
    so I open kernel file in hex editor but I cant find B6 38 01 00 to edit manually.

    win8 version: consumer preview 8250

    Any help would be appreciated

    Why do you want to install a Consumer Preview ?

    SSE2 is not a problem (or at least should not be a problem), my setup is using a Northwood on 478 with the i875P chipset. It's the lack of NX that is the culprit.

    Pentium 4 (Northwood)

    • » Netburst microarchitecture
    • » 0.13 micron
    • » Desktop CPU
    • » Up to 3.4 GHz
    • » Up to 800 MHz FSB
    • » 512 KB L2 cache
    • » 32-bit
    • » SSE, SSE2
    • » Hyper-Threading
    Socket 478

    Anyway, I bypassed the Perpetuum mobile of circling dots temporarily by just disabling Hyper Threading in Bios and was able to boot the system. Since I now had a working environment I disabled windows updates.

    I will analyze the patch in IDA to see if I can fix this HT business in hal- and halmacpi. It seems I also need to do something about the winload patchguard if I want to get rid of the annoying pressing F8-bypassing kernel patch protection-trick.
