good XP torrent/instructions?
    #11338515 - 10/28/09 03:23 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

anyone got a good XP torrent? as well as a few instructions about how to get it started. i hate using the defualt OS and i hate vista. i want to go back to XP, but i dont have any idea which version would be the best. and im assuming its just as simple as burn the .iso and restart with the CD in (im assuming i cant just use alcohol 120% and mount it). if i am using vista, will i need to download and install new drivers? i was told it is a good idea to go to my mainboard/computer manufactures website and see if a new BIOS is avail? is that necessary?

thanks for any and all help!

You're most likely gonna run into problems with drivers.  If Vista was the default OS chances are drivers don't exist for XP.  Just upgrade to 7.

how is 7 as far as being a resource hog and such?

Get 7.

It's pretty damn good.

I think I actually like it more than XP.

It apparently uses significantly less resources than vista... although I haven't actually done any tests (as I never used vista).

I torrented it, and am still getting updates for it.

7 was designed to run well on netbooks so it's a great option for older PC's if you have one.  If upgrading from Vista it's seamless.

hm ok, well imma do a little research but you guys are convincing.

one last question - there are like 10 versions on the top 100 page of TPB alone, any idea or insight on which one would be the best?

Im thinking one of the retail versions?

there is a partitioning tool when you set up, it will whipe out your hdd.  look for one of the following:
Microsoft.Windows.XP.Professional.SP3.Integrated.October.2009.Corporate.Unattended-UP2DATE
Microsoft.Windows.XP.Professional.SP3.Integrated.October.2009.Corporate-UP2DATE

I can flash/jtag/repair 360's, pm for details.
