Re: Windows 11 Compatibility.

It has been reported that Windows 11 will run even on a Pentium 4 HT and is probably the lowest you can install on. I did install Windows 10 Pro 64bit on the Pentium 4 HT (Prescott and Cedar Mill, socket LGA 775) These are the only P4s that will accept W8/8.1, W10 and 11 and support Nxbit and 64bit....

Re: Upgrade from Windows 7 to Linux Mint or Zorin

I was thinking since It says Virtualbox will run on Linux Mint or any other Linux OS, Then I can just run windows 7 in VM and run my games through that and or Adobe software. Would this work then?

Re: Windows 11 Compatibility.

The windows 11 insider and or the windows 11 floating around on the internet doesn't have the requirments turned on on these versions, so you can install on lower end CPUs and Microsoft said the full final retail version will require it and they said you can't bypass it.

Re: Windows 7 not activating AUG-2021

I got it working. It turns out the 8 in the key was a B. I hated these Microsoft stickers after Windows XP. All the Windows Vista and 7 and some late XP stickers were just plain paper stickers and would fade or get ruined over time. I loved the Windows 95-Windows XP laminated keys.

The W700 has the same docking port as the T60-T500. And I thought the dock would work with the W700 when it first came out to find the eject button was in the way of the laptop to seat down. That is why lenovo made a dock of its own for the W700. But I like the dock I have because it gives you a PCI...
