    wow, I'll give you $2000 if you can prove that's a genuine "Intel Cyrix"

    But seriously, putting XP on that machine is a significant mistake, it will run like bum

    It runs ok, I only put XP on it so people could buy it just for the parts and XP Pro !

    That won't work, I mean, do you have a LEGAL copy of Mircosoft Windows XP Professional Edition? If not, then you aren't really selling "XP pro" you are selling an illegal copy of it, which is on a HD, and you couldn't really do much with that except for format it. And if it IS legal, and licensed for that computer, that's a serious waste of money

    that's being rather... umm, VAGUE. A valid key and a legal key are two different things, I have seen illegal copies of XP run SP-1, you know what, this is just dumb, you keep making excuses, you cleary just don't know what you are doing or are trying to scam someone... That shows in your first line, EVERYONE knows that Pentiums and Cyrix aren't related at all by manufacturer and that computer flat out won't run XP with any quality at all.

    Look, I have got more than 1 license. I was thinking if I sell my PC, (which isn't worth much) with the Win XP Pro, I probably could get some money for XP aswell.

    And I think my PC is called a Pentium Cyrix. The people who I bought my PC off, said it is a Pentium, when I go to system properties, it says something 'Cyrix', what shall I believe ?

    And believe it or not, XP is working alright on that PC, no crashes or nothing, and 2000 was SLOWER on it than XP!

    fubar121 add postage to that & you could buy the very latest system in Canada. Of course it wouldn't be a classic. :D

    humm

    Yes it should run fine as long as you have a timexII chip or better.

    hum next time Im totally bored I might try installing "Devils own" on an old 486 I have in the closet... just for the hell of it.

    Maybe I can find a sucker on ebay to give me a couple hundred for it as well?
