It takes 3 hours to boot Windows XP on a system with a Pentium 1 MHz CPU
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.
According to NeowinNTDev – a Windows enthusiast with the motto “Try everything so you don’t have to” – decided to install Windows XP on a system with a 1 MHz Intel Pentium CPU, which hasn’t been enough to run even Windows 3.0 since 1990.
Windows XP is an operating system that used to be very popular in the market
As a result, running a relatively modern operating system on a processor from the 1970s takes a long time to boot: up to 3 hours. Even opening a simple application to display 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 ended up with a blue screen of death (BSOD).
Are known, Microsoft launched Windows XP in 2001, and at the time, the operating system required a CPU with a minimum clock speed of 233 MHz. Getting Windows XP to work on a system with a CPU several hundred times slower than the minimum requirement is a pretty interesting move NTDev made.
NTDev’s purpose is simply to satisfy curiosity. In addition to running Windows XP on the system with the aforementioned CPU, NTDev also does some other interesting projects, such as running Windows 10 on systems with a Cirrus VGA card.
