If you couldn't run Win7 on your machine, how is any WinPE after XP going to run?My machine run Win7 fine, however what i meant was it was failing to recognize a wireless device. Like a Wireless Adapter to connect to net,
To handle >2TB in XP x86 you need to either:
1) format the HDD using GPT partitions, (instead of MBR), which XP x86 can't handle anyway, or
2) see if there is some utility on the manufacturers website that will format it so it can be used on XP, (something they used to provide).
There was a driver that allows XP to handle GPT, Paragon GPT Loader but it's discontinued, send them a message maybe they'll give you a copy.
The other alternative if you want to stay with XP is to move to XP x64.On a next reboot , i didn't give the live Ubuntu USB enough time to reboot itself, i removed the usb half way and now the condition isWindows and GPT FAQ
i cannot load Live Ubuntu it show some kind of error msg when it is about to load.-hulkbuster (August 02, 2018, 08:32 AM)-4wd (August 02, 2018, 07:53 PM)
and later i realized it was due to faulty driver installation. XP is running that device fine it shows no BSOD, my DVD drive was trashed and i had to
use a portable Ext DVD drive, which didn't do the job properly or reading the disc drivers.
So download and put it on the flash drive again.Anyways i still can do this. Yeah.
Reinstall Ubuntu to the USB and boot from there, as long as it is working. Why not. hmmmm
Also the GPT thing is only for internal 2.2 TB+ above HDD, not for External. And, it can only be used as a Secondary unit.
I got it downloaded but just saw a GUI, its for Internal 2-3TB HDD.
Anyways don't have much use for Paragon GPT, i'll go will Live Ubuntu.
Thank you 4wd, your suggestion is valuable.
