Recommended Posts

I have reinstalled xp at weekend and seen that after deactivation of the hyperfile.sys file and shift the pagefile and the installation of NETFramework 2, Windows XP is only about 1.9 GB in size ... was that really so "small"?

 

i have also installed ms office, but on other partition.

 
Also xp starts very quickly

Hi, trium. 

win xp here is in a 45 gb partition. 

As you can see, the partition is only about 40 percent occupied.

Many references say you can get by with a much smaller partititon.

One advantage to a smaller partition is that you can do things to it quicker, like defragging, virus scanning, etc. 

The "My Documents" folder is about 5.46 gb.

Most files are stored on J_ntfs or on an external USB HDD.

We should also remember that when XP was released 1GB was considered a large amount of data...now your watch may have multi-GB

i thank you very much for your answers :)I thought that something has been lost or "transferred" to other partitions or so...I've even had luck again :D

 

 

ps: A few years ago i once had xp installed on an old 2 gb hard drive and comical were it, only 1 gb occupied after installation and it run still "normal"

 

really bizzare B):wacko:

I consider to reinstall XP on one of my machines. May I ask is fresh XP install pulling updates from Windows Update or the Microsoft service has been already abandoned?

 

not complete, i have only "really" updates for xp installed and 2-3 security things...+ netframework2 sp2. (ff and office and other software are installed on other partition...

i will not often to go with this xp in the internet. therefore I do not need all security updates ;-)

XPMC was based on XP Pro.

 

for my needs, the only difference that affected my choice between XP Home and XP Pro was that Home could handle 5 shared network connections whereas XP Pro could handle 10.

 

also, there has been, I think, 3 major releases of XPMC.  The original in 2003, then a new version for the next 2 years, each one given some wanky name.

they finished it off with a major update (rollup) in 2005.

Windows XP Media Center Edition was initially designed for high-end home theater PCs with TV tuners (marketed under the term "Media Center PC"), offering expanded multimedia functionality, an electronic program guide, and digital video recorder (DVR) support through the Windows Media Center application
