    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

    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.

    Hey, sorry to revive a dead thread however my current project is to install Windows 8/8.1/10 on a HP Pavilion dv1240us that I got for 5 dollars a few years ago. It's got a Pentium M 735 (the one with PAE support that no operating system can detect), 1.5GB RAM (upgraded from 1gb because a stick died).

    I tried Windows 10 today on this, followed every step to the letter but using a Windows 10 Pro install.wim file.

    I was able to successfully deploy it, however upon boot it goes to the BSOD-like Recovery screen telling me it doesn't support PAE, even though it does. If I try to press F8, it flashes for a second and then goes back to the same old Recovery screen.

    I'm going to try Windows 8 or 8.1 sometime soon, but does anyone know of a solution for it that may work on 10? Any help regarding this appreciated greatly.

    Also- keep in mind, this isn't my main PC. I have a good system as my main one, and it's got plenty of storage and everything I might need to modify all this.

    This HP is just a project laptop to me, and it has a upgradeable CPU. Is my only option to upgrade the CPU to a different Pentium M model?

    I'd prefer not to upgrade the CPU if possible.

    Thanks in advance for any and all help!

    Forgot to mention that this HP isn’t my main computer- my others all have CPUs more powerful than a C2D. They can run Windows 11 great.

    I mostly wanted to see if there was a way to prevent Windows 10 from bluescreening on startup, as I know that the Pentium M 735 is PAE capable, however it doesn’t show it to the BIOS or OS due to a known hardware defect in this CPU.

    Any help for this?

    (also, as far as I know this HP won’t support a C2D without a different motherboard being installed, as there’s a C2D compatible with the socket this uses however this HP doesn’t have the chipset required)

    I already said, the PC doesn't support a Core 2 Duo. I also don't have any other PC needing a Core 2 Duo or supporting one, as the other PCs are newer and don't have the same socket type needed for a desktop Core 2 Duo (LGA775)
