My old XP laptop was making a bad sound when trying to access the hard drive.
I bought a Win 11 notebook and installed Virtual Box XP Professional.It took me a few hours to install everything and glad i did it...
VALM and EXDC Thoromation got the 2 and 7...very nice exacta too...

Thanks Tim.Congrats too on that hit.I was surprised that the 2 was 11-1 on the board
before post.The #1 was the vulnerable fave being overbet till the last minute.

I got pm about the Virtual Box.I tried to follow Youtube to install it and that's why it took me a few hours.I was getting a headache and confused,but when i started looking at Google instruction,it took me only a half hour.The Virtual box Xp Mode was very fast and smooth.

Thanks Tim and Jeff.

I answered a pm yesterday.But there might be some members who might be curious or
interested in the Oracle's Virtual Box.The VB is just like another machine inside your Win 10
or Win 11 computer,similar to the old virtual machine on Win 7 Pro.But in VB,you can install a Win 7 ,8 or 10,or any other older OS.I installed the Windows XP Pro so i can run the older Dos applications and the old Sartin programs...
My older laptop was on its last leg,so i ordered a refurbished notebook on Ebay at a bargain price from a certified company rhat refurbishes Dell computers.I was very pleased
with the computer.Everything was running great...
I looked at a lot of Youtube videos on installing the VB and googled some instructions on
how to hook up the dvd and external drives for the installation of old programs.It will be a little frustrating just like any new tech installation,but i was so happy after everything
was installed.The Thoromation,Energy,Synthesis and specially the Val2/Val4/Valm have bigger screens to the delight of my bad eyes.Very happy with Virtual Box.

I also installed Windows XP Pro on a Windows 11 Pro 64 bit machine and for me it was quite a challenge to make everything work. If I ever have to do it again I will start with a bottle of bourbon.
