usedHONDA Posted January 11, 2007 Share Posted January 11, 2007 I didn't really think this was worthy for the General Discussion area, so I posted it in the Overflow. Maybe later, It will become a tutorial Day one: I search for a fast and most of all free emulator. I found Q [kju]. Q is an early stage emulator for Mac. It supports XP, 2k, 99, 95, Linux, and anything else you can throw at it. **DOWNLOADED** Now, hoping to get right on windows, I realize that there is no hope for that. I look at their forum for help. None. I decided to download one of the non-windows wannabes that only take 20MB. **DOWNLOADED** I "turn on the PC", and find that it stinks. Slow. Very. Very. Very. Slow. **COMMAND+DELETE** Day two [actually about a week later]: Back on the search, I decided that I want to get win2k instead of XP, due to the slow performance on the other one. I found a [legal] website with installation disk images for win2k (at bootdisk.com). **DOWNLOADED four floppy images** Started Q up Made a new PC with roughly 3000MB of space that is supposed to run win2k. I set it to boot from a floppy disk image. I saw the blue screen I was hoping for. I'm installing win2k.... "Insert floppy disk one"... "Insert floppy disk two"... "Insert floppy disk three"... "Insert floppy disk four"... "*Loading Windows 2000 Professional*"... "To install Windows 2000 now, hit ENTER"... "Please insert the CD-ROM labled 'Windows 2000 Professional Setup CD-ROM' in drive 'B' and hit ENTER" ... ... **PROBLEM** I don't have a CD image. Day 3: BLANK BLANK BLANK BEEP BEEP BEEP[half illegal stuff] Day 4: Turn Q on again. Turn on my "third attempt" PC "Windows 2000 Professional Setup" **30 minutes later** "Please wait while Setup copies files to the Windows 2000 Installation folder. This may take several minutes to complete." Current status: Wow. Colors on Macs are different from Windows.
