And where did OS/2 come from? educate us please.
done it on a sony i think it was that had XP on it 1Gb Ram and 250HD then another that had Vista on it with 2GB Ram 320HD took it grand just took a while to install
I don't think I have to educate you. You might know better about the very early OS/2 releases, I only had the opportunity to work with Warp (4.0). If you know, tell.
From what I remember (it's been quite a few years ago), there was some DOS functionality provided in OS/2 (IBM/PC-DOS). However, the thing wasn't based on DOS (in the sense that it needed DOS to boot up).
NT was developed to be a 32bit OS. The Windows consumer OS suffered from the fact that they needed DOS to boot, and so they had to be 16bit or 16bit-32bit hybrid OS. Many of us still know how well that worked out. Businesses needed stability and reliability and used the NT product family.
IIRC, the DOS-based couldn't even operate continually for more than ~49.7 days, they simply crashed. Imagine a server built on that.
Runs decent on a 2007 :
T7250 CPU (2GHz)
2GB RAM DDR2
250GB HDD (5.400 RPM) x'D
Minecraft and youtube run well after a short stutter.
A computer is not a problem, but Windows 11 is a problem. Windows 11 is still not usable for anything.
We must thank Heavenly Father for that it not yet mandatory to install.
If it's XP. how did you obtain Win11 key?
I have one XP machine and I could test Win10. but I haven't decided to buy a WIn10 key to install on it.
You mean 11 not win 10 and buying a key?
I thought Win XP/VISTA couldn't go Win11.
W11 running smoothly on lenovo thinkpad X201i with 8GB of ram
It still doesn't accept my Windows for Workstation 3.1 key...
Win 11 > MAS > Done

Sorry if my previous link did not work! Here is the original post copied. But I don't think the links will work, so just copy them to your browser. It seems that I am unable to post links so I have omitted the 'https' from both website urls
Using a first class guide: josephlo.wordpress.com/2015/08/09/tutorial-installing-windows-10-64-bit-on-2007-imac-7-1/ I was easily able to dual boot OSX and Win 11 on an elderly 24" iMac 8,1 with a 240GB SSD without Bootcamp, et al.
For the Windows installation, follow these instructions: pureinfotech.com/install-windows-11-unsupported-pc/ and download RealTek v2.7 for sound. Otherwise all else works straight off.
I also installed MacFan on both OS to provide extra cooling.
A new lease of life to an excellent machine
I have Win11 installed on an internal SSD attached to a SATA SSD to USB 3.0 adapter that works when plugged into any of my Desktop PCs.
My weakest/oldest PC will run it fine by just plugging it into a USB 3.0 port & restarting the PC while holding down the F8 key & choosing the SSD/adapter from the list.
The weakest PC is a Biostar MB, Intel i7-2600K CPU w/ 8GB RAM.
RP5700 upgraded with 8GB of DDR2, GT 710, Core 2, Duo E7600 and an 850 Pro.
i use it everyday what are you talking about.
You are absolutely right, if you have innate preconditions, you can use it. I do not have those preconditions.
