Many people may be wondering what would happen if they tried to run a version of Windows XP on a processor that is 233 times slower than the minimum recommended specification.
Corresponding NeuwinNTDev – a Windows enthusiast with the motto “try everything to do nothing” – decided to install it WindowsXP on a system with a 1MHz Intel Pentium CPU, which isn’t even good enough for Windows 3.0 since 1990.
Windows XP is an operating system that used to be very popular in the market
Therefore, booting a relatively modern operating system on a processor from the 1970s takes a long time: up to 3 hours. Even opening a simple application to view the CPU clock takes a long time to launch and the application itself is not very stable. Finally, shutting down Windows XP on a system with a 1MHz CPU resulted in a Blue Screen of Death (BSOD).
Are known, Microsoft Windows XP started in 2001, and at that time the operating system required a CPU with a minimum clock speed of 233 MHz. Getting Windows XP to run on a system whose CPU is several hundred times slower than the minimum requirement is quite an interesting move that NTDev has taken.
NTDev’s purpose is simply to satisfy curiosity. In addition to running Windows XP on the system with the above CPU, NTDev also does some other interesting projects such as: B. Run windows 10 on systems with a Cirrus VGA card.
