  1. Hey guys, Couldnt help but think after Linus' Amazon Basics video when he mentioned Ethernet Jacket quality on Monoprice's and Amazon Basics' Ethernet cables being specifically poor, what is notably good out there? been using Monoprices stuff for a while and looking to switch to the good stuff for the rest Thanks in advance!
  2. Alright thanks guys! I'll now be a bit less nitpicky about speeds then
  3. Hello, This is quite the interesting set of parts i want recommendations on, pretty much upgrading a Dell Latitude D620 to its maximum potential, it uses SATA 1.5Gbps with some Hitachi drive thats slowly going out the window, my thought is to grab a SSD Drive that is capable of Saturating that 1.5Gbps bus even under Random I/O, doesnt have to be balls to the walls or anything like that, it just needs to work for a while with decent speeds over my hard drive, but saturating that single bus would be brilliant Thanks in Advance Guys!
  4.

  5. XP Install CD I'll Double check, but im sure it should, as both systems came with that OS Pre-Installed. But how do I load Windows 8.1/10's CD/USB in safe mode? the F8 Method does not respond with anything.
  6. I am attempting to install Windows 10's TP on some rather old hardware I dug up from Family Members that appears to match The rather basic Requirements for Windows 10 and 8.1. The Issue Lies in the booting the Setup USB/CD for either one. Here are my Notes on the PC's in Question. Both Motherboards, at Default Settings at least, Get as far as the Windows Logo then hang there, no spinner, no reboots, no errors Motherboard/CPU Set #1 -------------------------------- HP a305w Motherboard (Emachines Imperial Gl Ve Motherboard) GMA 845GL Chipset and Graphics, Not Upgradable I Believe Celeron 1.5GHz Northwood Family Up to 2GB of RAM Capacity (2x DDR DIMMs) 4x PCI Ports Motherboard/CPU Set #2 -------------------------------- Shuttle nForce2 Based Board (EDIT: Shuttle MN31) nForce2 with MX Graphics, Upgradable to 7800GS In Which its using it now AMD Athlon XP 1500+ (Overclockable) Up to Theoretically 3GB of RAM, cant find Specs on this board (3x DDR DIMMs) 1x AGP 8x Port - GeForce 7800GS 4x PCI Ports - All Empty Both Ran Windows XP and Can Boot the Newest Linux Kernel (With the exception of the Shuttle Board on only integrated graphics, otherwise boots fine on an AGP Card) Both Use USB 1.1 Ports and a USB 3.0 Drive to boot the installer Both Boards were tested with a 20GB Quantum Fireball (ATA) and a 40GB WD400 (ATA) and both are not SATA Capable Both have 750MB of RAM at the moment, I will upgrade these if I figure out if it's worth the money Question to LTT Forum Users: Which of these is a stronger platform fully upgraded if any of them is capable of booting the installer, and what should I change to make that possible? (Note That Both Machines Dont reach the Windows Spinner, only the logo)
