    I have a pc that I was going to put win2k on and was wondering if folks still have to run the via hyperian install in the compatability mode to get the 4x AGP working or has that been fixed?

    I guess I must be thinking about something else.

    Read the sticky in this forum. You don't need to do anything tricky, just install the Hyperions normally.

    Let me guess, you have an nvidia card and you ran into the via/nvidia 4x problem? y/n?
    Riva tuner has a fix for that. And it has nothing to do with win2000 or hyperion drivers, never did.

    No not really. In fact I was just thinking about installing win2k to replace winxp pro, but that was so ****** up I went back to xp pro no dx 9 and selective patch installs and it seems my system is back up and purring along.

    Technology moves forwards, not backwards.

    Ive done that personally a couple of times. For some reason, the W2K seems more stable on certain systems.
    Seems that I can boot XP fine up to 150FSB, but beyond that it gets freaky. But W2K works. Not all, but some systems run at 153 and 152FSB on my KG7Raids.

    there could be 101 reasons why someone would want to move back to win2k from winXP. Considering how similiar the 2 OS's are, it's only a very small step backwards. I know I did several times when I first got XP, for no other reason than I didn't like the look and feel of it. There is no reason to condem someone that chooses one equally good OS over another (unless it's winME, but that's another matter ;) )

    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    If you don't like the look and feel of it....

    Right click My Computer > Properties > Advanced > Settings

    Change the button to "Adjust for best Performance".

    There. Now its exactly the same as Win2k, but with the functionality of XP.
