Meh, I'm not too trusting of those hacked up 'abandonware' ISO's that are so plentiful....most are bloated with malware and other sordid crap. I have one or two XP systems still remaining....for...

Re: Window XP Product Actvation Not Working

You've got a point....but VLK/Corporate edition negates it all anyway....

Just out of curiosity.....does an x86 VLK for XP work with an x64 corporate media? I don't have XP64 Corporate media, but...

Re: Window XP Product Actvation Not Working

I can give you a copy of the media, but you'll have to scare up a VLK....they're out there, probably not too hard to find.

Not bad. You can up that to 2x hexa cores @ 3.46 or 2x quads @ 3.6. IIRC, they have 12 RAM slots, max at 192 officially, 384 unofficially. Great system for...say a M6000 24gb GPU!

Re: OMFG, I have real internet!!

Nope. It's been a flat $45/mo, 'price forever' promotion. After the 40mbit upgrade, it went to $55, same price fix.

When I first got their service 15 years ago, it was $19.95/mo for this slow...
