Got myself a lil 2 TB job -- a little more than I really wanted to pay in €-value ATM, but I can handle the end-of-month heat I guess... :whistle ^*^ :witch:

Guess I'll have a go with the main rig next week or something...

I have SUCH a love/hate relationship with this particular computer !!!

This really is turning out to be a trip down memory lane..

Got XP Pro x64 installed now, on a dedicated partition, and I'm just going through all of the same experiences of about 6 years ago when I built the rig !!!

Love side is : cripes, I've never seen any other rig with this kind of fundamental longevity.

Hate side is : but CRIPES basic Windows setup is just such MURDER !!!!!!!!!!

Also --- this was my Main Longhorn 4074 rig, so it gets extra credits for poetry.

Drives now days are quite huge, why I remember when... :lol:

I installed XP x64 Pro also about a year ago in a bootable VHD.
It seemed to run ok once I found some drivers for that rig.

Did you find a copy of XP x64 SP3 or is yours one that has it built into it.

XP x64 only goes as far as SP2 ... :lol:

It's new installation media that I'm making, not completely happy with it atm, will probably create another one next week.

But yeah, I do have the SP2 slipstreamed ...

You are correct Julian, I was looking at the x86 TechNet .iso by mistake.
The x64 does only go as far as SP2.

:yesnod:

... I actually looked this up in the past day or two, and Microsoft has actually announced that there will *never* be a Service Pack 3 for Server 2003 and XP x64 ...

(though frankly, I'd hope for a decent Update Rollup one day ... :oops: :whistle )

Yay !! ^*^

Had a good feeling suddenly, made a new CD, *much* cleaner than the last one, and it's in tip-top shape now !!

:witch:

Now, can start the more interesting business with trying to get W7 x64 onto the rig, and with no further need to waste any more blank DVDS either ... :whistle
