comment What technical reason did Microsoft give for no Internet Explorer 9 on Windows XP?
@ChrisF I think Microsoft is starting a determined push to get people to stop using their outdated software. Between writing some of their newer software only for Vista/7 to actually encouraging people to stop using Internet Explorer 6 they are getting serious.

comment Error loading operating system: format Windows 7 to Windows XP Service Pack 3
@Darokthar It depends on your motherboard as to whether you would need to load special SATA drivers to install to a SATA HDD. I've had multiple computers that I installed Windows XP SP1-3 that had SATA HDDs without problem.

comment Windows XP Log In: Can't do it. Logon Message popup
@user33906 Is this a laptop? I came across a problem where the NUM LOCK was on causing the alphabet keys to be typing letters and the username just happened to not use those letters in the username. Try typing your password into the username field so that you can see exactly what the computer is getting then Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V that into the password field.

@Shinrai my HD 4650 does support HDCP, it's my monitor's that don't support it. As long as the setup works and there's not tons of lag with my system, I don't mind if I have to get an older card.

comment Boot from USB HDD
it depends alot on the notebook, many older, Win XP based systems will not allow you to boot from a USB drive. you'll have to go into the BIOS to see if booting from a USB drive is possible.
