    Are you going to integrate this reversed KB4507704 timezone update that was released in July 2019? It was also supposed to be released for POSReady according to the KB documentation but it seems to be only limited to partners having taking part in a some sort of a 15k$USD premium
    Fortunately the smart guys from MSFN have figured it out but instead of including the usual microsoft hotfix/update stuff, they just released a .reg file with appropriate changes.

    https://msfn.org/board/topic/171814-posready-2009-updates-ported-to-windows-xp-sp3-enu/?do=findComment&comment=1180892 - link to the .reg file download; previous post explains the stuff.
    recommend that you read from this point to get the graspe on the context: https://msfn.org/board/topic/171814-posready-2009-updates-ported-to-windows-xp-sp3-enu/?do=findComment&comment=1180704

        Rule 1.b, eh? Draconic, but what else to do to avoid any potential legal issues with MS.
        > I also couldn't find this Update on the internet.
        yeah, there are 3 potential reasons of why this update can't be found for POSReady 2009:
        * documentation error, the update simply did not exist
        * accidentally released to the public, but taken down (just like with that other timezone update from June), but this time nobody has acquired it within the time window of the update being available
        * the update exists, but they've learnt from the mistakes from June's update and have directly released to enterprises being part of the 15k$ premium support programme.

          Ramsey · 5 months ago
          Buying a Server in a less draconical country would slow the legal issues problem.
          I could start a GoFundMe for15k$ and ask Microsoft to lets us into the premium support programme.

            Heh, the only thing is that it's destined for large-scale enterprises and gov/mil agencies, not for a mere mortal, unlike how it is with Windows 7/Server 2008 and the Extended Security Updates program, alas.

            But who knows, assuming the updates don't include any personal/sensitive metadata that would allow them to trace the leaker, maybe they will be leaked, one day.

      No need to ask Ramsey endlessly about every small thing. If CPU-Z shows that it supports SSE2, then you don't need to rely on the patch. It's for ancient potatoes that don't support it.

          I'd not say that, though. I have a feeling that he's just an un-techsavvy person whose English isn't a mother tongue. The nick sounds French, or Moroccan, or Tunisian for me, so yeah. They should use a good translator like DeepL if their English is bad, and that translator does wonders, compared to Google's.

            I do notice that his English isn't good and that is something I can understand as English isn't my native language either (but it is my primary language though) but one issue I have with his comments is his unnecessary use of ALL CAPS and weird (*)++__*(&*(@! symbols usage.
            I'm also aware of him being not tech savvy but if he wants to learn, he should've start small, not tinkering with modded OS. Most of the questions I see from him is also answered in the ReadMe text file.
            BTW, thanks for the info drop on a good translator. I was just looking for a better replacement to Google's translator and Microsoft Bing's translator.

    What does vanilla mean in this case? It sounds more like vanilla Minecraft which is just the plain Java edition without any mods at all. Does the XP iso come prepackaged with the mods and tweaks we're used too? Also what's with the key patcher? I thought this build of XP was preactivated.
    • This commment is unpublished.
      Ramsey · 5 months ago
      The (Vanilla) is the default one. And the "Optional Patch Integrator" script will create a customized one with the experimental patches you selected, and this one will then be called (Customized Option x,x,x,x,x,x,x).

        Thanks for the clarification, but what are the files in the WinXPPx86IE folder used for? They look like key patchers and I thought it was preactivated. Is that for a just in case scenario?
        • This commment is unpublished.
          Ramsey · 5 months ago
          It's per-activated. This are only tools in case someone needs them. For example, if someone wants to change the CD-Key with the CD-Key they bought.

            ncrouch · 5 months ago
            Thank you again for clarifying very quickly. I kinda thought that was the case. If the target system is an old Pentium 4 from 2004, I can disregard the extra tweaks right? I'm assuming because most of the extra tweaks not baked into the iso are for newer computers and the SSE2 patch is for even older computers.
            • This commment is unpublished.

    Hey Ramsey, find your "distro" because of getting nostalgic and wanting to play games with my Race Wheel attached to the gameport. After wondering why its not recognized as gamecontroller I eventually found this line in your Readme:

    * Nothing was removed that could cause System or Software problems, only outdated and unneeded components were removed. 5. 3rd-party Drivers: "Display Adapters", "ISDN", "Logitech WingMan", "Microsoft SideWinder", "Scanners", "Sony Jog Dial", "Toshiba DVD decoder card".
    Well - SideWinder drivers is what I desperately need, as there is no other source of drivers but the ones Microsoft shipped with the OS. How to get them back or find them in an original ISO ?
    Thank you very much.
    • This commment is unpublished.
      Ramsey · 5 months ago
      You can use the one from the CD of your Game Controller or even better download the Up-to-Date driver from the internet.
    • This commment is unpublished.
      IntMD · 5 months ago
      Or alternatively download the original unmodified ISO within the install., mount the ISO via ImDisk & pop the Race Wheel in. (or alternatively if it doesn't automatically install the drivers, install the driver via devmgmt.msc and direct it to the mounted ISO (either via the special CD/DVD option or manually).

      Was going to say about whether popping the clean ISO in would restore unrelated modified files, but these ones already have a digital signature so no need to worry about the file protection going apeshit.

      BTW normally I'd recommend that you get it from the-eye's MSDN mirror but it is currently offline now, so get the ISO from this mirror of the-eyes MSDN mirror: https://msdn.hackerc.at/
      Get en_windows_xp_professional_with_service_pack_3_x86_cd_vl_x14-73974.iso since that ISO is the closest to the base that Integral Edition is built on.

    New to site today. I am trying to resurrect an old xp pro system and get all my updates. I have my original disc and product key. I am not a high level techie so I need help. I know to burn the iso for the xp pro Windows XP Professional SP3 x86 - Integral Edition 2020.4.14 (Operating Systems) download but I tried another product from a different vendor ( ALL PC World) but when I entered my original SP2 version from the burned iso file on boot up it did not recognize it. Need help.

              see I told you I was not high level. It did not boot directly to dvd drive on start up. I had to open the drive and hit autoplay. But then it is asking for product key still??? what am i doing wrong?
              I chose upgrade from the choices.

                  the ones I found show an .exe file to run. What is your file? I thought I had to have an iso burned to a dvd so it would boot. Apparently not. When I download your file or the one on this site named "Microsoft Office 2019 Professional Plus x86-x64 - Online Installer v1.1.2" what am I downloading? It appears to be a zip file. So I extract it to a place on my desktop (I am on another computer doing this not the one I want to update to SP3 etc). Then I have a folder for it with the file.
                  From there I can place it on a dvd or usb and then use for the old computer I think. So will it be an .exe file or what?

                    my old system does not have zip and internet is lousy connection and intermittent. That is why I am trying to do it from usb or dvd.

                        But that's what you should do. Simply burn the Vanilla ISO as a bootable ISO on to a Disc and then restart your computer and boot from the bootable Disc to install Windows XP new. And also backup your files before reinstalling.

    When I try to install the Patched version (AHCI, xHCI, 128GB) on another laptop it goes in a Blue Screen after some seconds on First Part. I tried with that two fixes, to no avail.

      First try one patch at a time and also try different ACPI patches. This patches are no guaranty that they will work on all computers that's why i didn't integrate them by default.

          Then this is most likely a SATA driver problem. Try to use only the Universal SATA/AHCI driver option in the Optional Patch Integrator.

              Check you BIOS if you can change the Controller from SATA to IDE.

                I understand. I saw earlier a guide with IDE compatibility. It still crashed. I tried again this time. Same result.
                USB. With your tutorial and recommended tool. Patcher, Unarchive ISO, delete BOOT, Tool -> NTFS; WinXP (align and copy auto selected). Should I use Rufus with .iso directly into USB?

                    I tried with Rufus (last version) and 2.18 (Windows XP), it coudn't load the USB...
                    Now I tried with an March version from Internet and at First Step it says "Line 1 of INF file \WINSETUP\XPpSP3\I386\winnt.sif is invalid". Maybe the files were broken, so do you have an official earlier version? Thanks!

                          To be more precise: I select First Part and after it loads all the drivers, it says (below, bar) - "Setup is starting Windows" and after a while it crashes.

                            Hard to say why you Laptop doesn't like Windows XP.
                            But i also saw that your Laptop was shipped preinstalled with Windows 8 and has 4 GB of RAM. You would be better of putting Windows 10 on that Laptop.

                              I have an unpleasant experience on Windows 7 (random GUI freezes etc.) on Windows 10 it would be only worse. It's very old, that's why I tried to install an easier still working OS on it. Thanks for your help!

                                I would really give Windows 10 a shot. It doesn't hurt to try it out. It's also better optimized for slower computers than Windows 7.

                                  I tried already some time ago. I had it for a time but it was a bit slower than Windows 7. I tried every possible variant, from drivers, tweaks, OS. This one (and Linux ) were the last variants. I'm aware that XP isn't compatible anymore with many apps but I could find some bypasses until I get a new rig.

                                    You should consider replacing your Hard Disk Drive with a cheap SSD. This will make a big differences.

                                      Yes, maybe. But isn't worth it anymore, all the components are too used, not just the HDD (it has about nine years). In some time this will be a gonner. Better get a new computer. But I tried to do something to make it usable for usual activities. I'll search for more solutions until I find something that solve it.

                            I'd recommend getting a bunch of DVD-R discs and burning this to disc - I think trying to install off of USB is causing this issue.

                              All local shops are closed nor I'm allowed to go for that outside. The online variant requires me to buy in a special way (and more pieces) which could be a bit expensive just for what I try to achieve. Also whichever CD I have left are 10+ years old, scratched and already mostly written with photos. Instead, I found another device with whom I could try to install (HDD External). Perhaps I should "slipstream" SATA drivers into the package? Though I'm not so sure which driver I should use.

                                maybe try Easy2boot?

                                try the one without drivers first (instead use the generic AHCI driver for now)

                                follow the instructions Easy2boot gives you and remember to press F6 to load Either Firadisk or WinVBlk when prompted (not both)

                                            No, but I don't know if this would appear somewhere after the setup...

                                            Yes, that's where I put it.

                                            I tried the patched one too and the setup just freezes after it load the XP in memory and ask me to press ENTER to continue with that F6 (after I press ENTER it freezes with the example).

                                            Should I try the setup with the drivers? Or it's due to the USB/HDD drivers? Like it loads fine in the first steps. What should I do? I'm clueless.

                                              first, you'll need to load the RAMdisk driver
                                              during setup press F6 to load a driver, press S

                                                              It works but I'm not sure if I would choose it as a final and real solution

                                                              If ACPI Multiprocessor PC works for you then go for it, it's the best option available.

                                                                I meant MPS Multiprocessor works. But many said that that's obsolete. I think that ACPI by default it's selected by the installer but it crashes. I don't know how to make the ACPI Multiprocessor to work. On Windows 7 works. Why on Windows XP isn't? Should I update my BIOS (here I have no experience) or should I add something in the .iso?

I think it was the same BSOD code (0x0A) but I tried to ignore. I force-restarted by myself and I went with part 2. When the devices-drivers part came, it gave me multiple errors about "no disk in drive" "device\harddiskx\drx".. so i pressed "Continue" for all that errors.. and finally I managed to do it.. sadly it crashed again but just at final and I force-restarted it. It opened, was applying his settings until a message about "OEM" couldn't be found appeared... Maybe it's because what I said earlier with easy2boot support. So I had to do it by myself but I gave up because I didn't wanted to encounter again BSODs in future... I don't think that my laptop is going well with XP (from what I have seen on other topics). So now I evaluate another options, like Manjaro Linux. Anyway, thank you all ofvfor your support, I appreciate

      what laptop model do you have?

      also, you might have encountered the driver stability issue with the PAE patch, more than 4GB can have issues with certain drivers, try the 4GB limited version instead, or skipping it entirely

        Look at the third comment for the model. I saw that detail about instability but my laptop has exactly 4GB ram, in this case, aren't used about 3.5GB or so and the rest by the other things (GPU if I don't mistake)? I'm not exactly documented in this area.

          OK, create a patched ISO
          select option 1 and 5 and create a patched ISO
          If you have an internal optical drive in your laptop I would recommend using that to install XP instead of USB.

                The one above (first message). I don't have CDs nor is too comfortable in my opinion.

                  7B BSOD could also be your USB XP install media not detecting itself properly. I had this issue when plugging my USB XP install media into a USB 3.0 port, I needed to use a USB 2.0 port.

                  If you have a USB 2.0 port available use that port for the install media
