I've used TinyXP for both. My son's PC is running it too (he's only 4 though).

i recommend experiance version of xp . download that and you can create an iso with tinixp beast edn (or any other edn) AS WELL AS put about 500mb of stuff onto the cd to copy during the install process...

i.e i made a version of beast xp with:

mala
mame
snaps
vid card drivers
samples
some roms


all set up and ready to do. i pop the cd inthe drive..... install windows (hit install and walk away) and voila

a pc running tini xp beast edition (hell fast)
and all my file structure there ready to go


or just d/l tiniXP beast edition

number 1 quality best for mame

For those that have installed this version or one of the other TinyXP versions I have some questions.

Does this need a license key number to activate?

Is so, are you able to use your current Windows XP number to activate?

Or has it been created from that pirated XP disc it seemed everyone had years ago?

Once activated will this thing try to download updates or has that part been removed?

How much ram is needed to run it? I've Heard you can get away with as little as 60 meg of ram, is that right?

What sort of boot times are people getting?

Thanks.

I use rev 6 because it has full network support only because I want to get the most out of GameEX.
Beast edition would be better suited for MameWAH and AtomicFE.

Pardon my ignorance, but what benefit is there in using a cut down version of XP over an old version of W98SE?

W98SE loads quick enough for me to run a MAME setup. Taking about 30 seconds from power on to go inter GameLauncher.

Does the cut down XP load that much faster?

No licence key, no activation, no updates - stick in on and off you go. Boot time on my PII 400 with 192 mg ram is about 20 seconds into Tiny XP and 35ish to Atomic FE menu

I spent ages trying to set atomic and mame up on 98 and kept running into problems. with Tiny xp I had it running spot on 1st time. I imagine with a decent machine that boot times are much faster than 98

I have run it up on a spare machine, very good so far. I cannot get the video card drivers to install. It seems to be running VGAsave? It does not list an video adapter, nor can I change it. If I try and install drivers for the video card it states that I do not have the necessary hardware or software?
In the device manager it comes up with the yellow explanation mark. But I still cannot change the driver there.
Anyone else had this issue?

tinyxp = ~200mb iso
microxp = ~100mb iso

the smaller the iso, the more stripped down it becomes. both were done by "eXPerience" about two years ago.

go here for more info: http://forum.retestrak.nl/viewforum.php?f=153
registration is open!

there is an even smaller windows installer called XSOS. i think it uses win2kpro as core with XP files as updates. the iso is only ~64mb and needs only ~128mb hd space. memory usage is 32mb on fresh bootup.

When you say windows is it a bare bones version of Windows XP?


regarding XSOS:

i can't remember, but it is NT based. from what i remember the "author" says to use wdm-based XP drivers. but when it boots up, it looks like a modified win2kpro boot screen. that's why i said it uses win2kpro as core with XP and maybe win2003 files for its "updates".

you can't expect a lot of functionality with an installer of this size. what makes it stable and fast is that a lot of unnecessary files were taken out. a lot of the services were DELETED, i think only 4 is available on startup. there is basic networking available, you can get on the internet with this. this is perfect for a standalone gaming machine (mame!). you have to try this just for its size.

READ THIS IF YOU USE TINYXP BEAST EDITION

by eXPerience on 16 Jan 2008 06:10 am
OK since people insist on using this OS, heres some points you must take into consideration:

1 - "TinyXP Beast Edition" was released on 6th June 2006. This means it is now more than 18 months old.

2 - Because this OS is 18+ months old - I urge everyone not to download it. If you have already downloaded it - don't use it.

3 - Stop asking me and other members here questions about "TinyXP Beast Edition". Personally, I refuse to support this OS or answer any questions about any problems, because 18 months ago when this OS was made, I didn't know half of what I know now regarding better tweaks, better silent installers, better selection of components to remove and so on. Don't ask me about why you can't use a printer in Beast Edition! Don't ask me why you cannot use a Webcam in Beast Edition. Would you complain to Ford because your 1963 Mustang broke down? STOP USING THIS OS AND GET OVER THE FACT THAT ITS INFERIOR TO ALL THE "TinyXP" RELEASES THAT HAVE PRECEDED IT.

4 - Maybe the most important thing to note is this - TinyXP Beast Edition is called the Beast Edition because it was released on 06.06.06. Get it? Number of the beast and all that stuff? 6th June 2006 = 6.6.6 and this is THE ONLY reason this OS was released. IT IS, IN EVERY CONCEIVABLE PERCEPTION YOU COULD MAKE, A NOVELTY OS. Its not supposed to be taken seriously.

5 - This OS, apart from the above 4 points, is only for surfing the internet and playing games. Did I know what I was doing when i removed Webcam support? Yep. Did I know what I was doing when i removed printer support? Yep. I knew these things wouldn't be usable in this OS but it was made to be as small as possible with the knowledge I had at that time - it was never intended to support anything other than to surf the net and play games, thats it.

n00b: OK eXPerience I understand all this, but Beast is a popular OS.
eXPerience: I don't care if people are framing it and hanging it on their wall, its POINTLESS using it now in 2008.

n00b: OK OK OK, so what can I do?
eXPerience: The last TinyXP made is called "Windows TinyXP Platinum Edition 2 - eXPerience" so search Pirate Bay for it, this was released on 17th June 2007 (damn is it really that long ago, where is my life going) or an even more up to date one is the monstrously delicious "Windows 50-in-1 Ultra DVD by eXPerience" also on Pirate Bay. This is a DVD so its going to be a long download but all OS's on this DVD are updated to 16th October 2007, the day it was released.

I will not answer any more questions about "TinyXP Beast Edition".

i hope not. i stopped tracking his releases when he moved to DVD iso's. he has made various versions of TinyXP/MicroXP/Micro 2003/Server2003/50-in-1 Ultra. he does say that he will make tinyxp sp3 when sp3 becomes an official release. that would be anytime this year?

Well today we have a brand new version of XSOS, this edition should support different media types, so we NEED it to be tested on Hard drives, Compact flash, USB thumb drives, or any other storage device you feel like playing around with. Also we have added a remote control application, which if you run a WCG Farm you might like. You can download V0.7 here http://nnstep.com/boinic/garbage/XSOS_USB.v0.7/
Please please please please please read the manual included in the rar.
Installation just like all previous editions.
NOTE Please use windows XP drivers.

Does anyone know if tiny xp has Mousekeys installed or whether I can add it as a windows component?

I am having problems getting MAMEWAH - keeps saying NO GAMES AVAILABLE and every time I find a howto/help guide it mentions folders I don't have (eg ini folder where I have a config folder).

I tried Game Launcher but the P1 button (keyboard 1) doesn't work as OK like it does in MAMEWAH. However the P1 and P2 buttons work as ESC :unsure

So next up I'm going to give Ultrastyle a go and see if that works with my button config.

But failing all that so I don't have to keep using my keyboard if I must use MAME32 with GUI I wondered if mousekeys might help me.

both are network capable.

on tinyxp you get online the normal xp way (enable lan).

on xsos you need to toggle one of four modes:



1. OnlineWork - Network access + workgroup/domain joining possible
2. Online - Network access
3. Offline - Offline (Default)
4. BenchMode - Offline + only the very essential services running (will reboot)

these are in the start menu.

if something does not work, like network printing, then it was probably taken out.

Before i had windows xp but it would get past the windows xp loading screen. any ideas? also, once the setup finished it gave me the blue screen of death.

google memtest. download the latest .iso burn it to cd and boot of the cd. (its under 5MB). Basically it tests every little piece of the RAM. will take a hour or so. Ifyou think it might be dodgey let it do 3 tests.

im still running the test. seeing as it was able to boot and i can edit my motherboard options, it isnt the motherboard. the test has gotten to test 7 where it tests random number sequences. it has been on 61% for almost an hr now, and has testd it 6.5million times and all have errored so im guessing that means the ram is fuxored. I will just get a new stick 2moro. Also. My friend is having trouble with his computer. he can press the power button and you cna hear the hdd runnin and the fan on the graphics card and processor heatsink run but there is no activity lights and nothing appears on the monitor. We believe it is the motherboard. We have unplugged stuff and re-plugged it back in so it isnt that(only way to check seeing as the idiot disabled the internal speaker when the computer was running -_-) so does that seem like a motherboard issue?

replace the cmos battery. flat cmos batteries can cause dumb things.

clear the cmos. there should be a jumper close by the the battery. it may just say CMOS. it may be set up with the jumper over pins 1-2. move jumper to pins 2-3 and leave it sit for a few mins, then move back to 1.2. power up again and see how you go.

if you rip out the ram it should beep at you. if no beeps, good chance the mobo is rooted.

opm881
16th April 2008, 09:51 PM
kk, i will make him replace the cmos battery first. he was able to turn off the internal beeps via windows in the sound settings so that doesnt seem to be an option (the beeping part). this has happened to his computer before and he fixed it by pulling out the cmos battery and putting it back in and by fiddling round with the power cable and alot of hitting. he only got the computer just over 12 months ago so we think it must be the motherboard but unfortunaly it is out of warranty. lucky motherboards arnt too expensive any more

try a replacement powersupply FIRST. Have a computer here, it was doign the same as you described, ended up being the powersupply.. and also some faulty ram (but it will get into windows on faulty ram). So went and got more ram tonight.. but just my luck... i purchased dead ram lol :P time to go back and get a repalcement :P

Sometimes its just a stuffed PSU.

And when running memtest, if its just 1 small fail then BAM its a dead stick (dont trust it). Most RAM has 3 years warranty/lifetime.

opm881
17th April 2008, 01:28 PM
im guessing the powersupply thing was for my computer, not my friends? i bloody hope it is cause i just bought a 512mb stick, put it in and bam the dam blue screen comes up again. if your talking about my mates comp with the motherboard problem then i will try that with his comp too. The ram in my comp is alot older than 3 yrs so yea. ill try the psu thing now -_-. i swear if this comp costs me any more i shouldve just bought a brand new one.

opm881
17th April 2008, 02:54 PM
ok i have replaced EVERYTHING but the motherboard and processor with parts I know for 100% work. My last choice is to try this old motherboard i have with the processor from the new comp. that wont help anything but tell me if the procesor or the motherboard is the problem, so how can i check if its compatable? also, when trying to boot from disc the screen goes black, not off black but pixels active black and just stops there.

Chck the MB for physical signs of breakage. Broken capacitors/buldging caps.

17th April 2008, 03:22 PM
ive checked, i cant see any. bulges or anything. the set up keeps freezing mid way. also, the motherboard has 3 ram slots, i can put ram in either of the 2 outer slots, but not the inner one otherwise it does the whole beep beep missing part thing. i think i might as well just go back and say i want my money back. now i gotta find a dam comp that will be able to take ddr ram -_-

Lol, the location in my profile wont be where i am right now cause im at my folks, 2000km away. ANY WAY! I have fixed the comp. turns out the bloody motherboard couldnt handle having the cpu cache 1 and 2 enabled. i installed micro xp, have 1 gig of ram runnin, a 20gig and a 40gig hdd, and i wanna install my 4 gig hdd just to use for virtual ram sorta thing, you know, to try and speed up the comp or some crap. ANY WAY. still need to buy a PCI wireless card cause it will be too away from the wireless router(it has 4 network ports) so yea. any way. now i just gotta get a hdd power supply extension port, maybe another hdd but a sata one this time. still cheaper then buying a new one so woot.

I just tried MicroXP with a network connection tonight for the first time. I had the computer running, plugged in the Network Cable but it still had the Network the Red Crossmark on it in the task bar. I rebooted the computer and the Network is connected now but I cannot see the network. I might need to load Client for Microsoft networks? I'm not sure will try it out tomorrow.

Have you had any luck with your connection?

Has anyone used tinxp rev06 as a everyday os for surfing the web ,playing games , etc and had problems ? Because im thinking about putting on my laptop which has a genuine copy of windows xp to make things faster and to use in the cab im building for mame and normal computer stuff .

OK, my turn to chime in, and only because I tried out MicroXP for the first time this weekend.

I have revived my mame aspirations, so am going through the process of setting up my mobo etc.

I 'setup' microXP, and I have a few observations:

1 - The setup is indeed tiny. As in an 88mb .iso (My collection of drivers for the mobo, wireless and vid were 144mb :))
2 - The setup was fast
3 - the boot time is impressive

I am not too keen on the 'branding' with 'MicroXP' popping up while it boots etc, but meh that's no problem

Now my problems I had...

Note: I have a DFI Lanparty 875pro motherboard. From all observations it is pretty pimp (for its time), has all sorts of stuff on it (4 IDE, 2 Sata, Raid blah blah). Not my first choice, but a hand me down from my gaming bro, so came at the right price.

My problems could be this mobo, or this user (lots and lots of pro experience with XP, none at all with MicroXP)

1 - The 'standard' driver package from Micro made the machine sucky.
2 - The WiFi adapter drivers once installed, appeared to do bugger all - no networks found - I can find 4 other than my own with my laptop right next to it
3 - Cannot install the mobo .inf files - they reckon my mobo is not the 'pro875' which it most certainly is - so something is broken there... same with the intel app accelerator (fancy name for chipset drivers)
4 - The video drivers installed OK, but were not exactly speedy due to '3' above
5 - The onboard audio drivers said 'get bent' as they also believe the mobo does'nt have the right chipset
6 - same for onboard LAN
7 - I didn't even think about bothering with the raid crap

So, it does not look like it is right for me... Which is OK, the install time was pretty quick, so I burned about an hour or two checking it out.

Unless someone here knows (and let's me know) that I'm doing something very wrong, I'll just go to XP.

Is there really a huge difference between Micro or Tiny XP? I'd imagine a similar set of problems...

---------------------

Do I think you should put it on a laptop? Hmm no. With all the weird hardware and necessary drivers, I think you'll be in a lot of strife getting it to work.

If you are willing to get it to work, then I guess it would be 'worth it'. I honestly don't see any way for massive speed improvements from Tiny/Micro, just faster boot times. A lot of the 'stuff' ripped out is what makes XP (fat) easier to use as a day to day machine.... Which is OK for mame etc, but would be annoying as hell on a daily use PC.

If you want to try it, by all means. Just make sure you image your current machine, so if you hate it you can go back pretty quick...

22nd April 2008, 02:58 PM
Yeh im not going to use the 88mb iso one because i think i tried it before on a other computer and it didnt match my needs but im going to use the 700mb tinyxp rev06 which has a good reputation to work towards it .

22nd April 2008, 11:00 PM
2 - The WiFi adapter drivers once installed, appeared to do bugger all - no networks found - I can find 4 other than my own with my laptop right next to it





I tried getting a network going in MicroXP just now, and I could not do it. Then I read in the release notes - No Network support! It can browse the web though and maybe FTP though that. My guess is that TinyXP would have network support reading this.

eXPerience Presents...

- This release is kept to a CD sized ISO so anyone can use it




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


To install TinyXP from this CD, set your PC
in the BIOS to boot from your CD-ROM drive.

Only install this operating system onto a freshly formatted partition or hard disk.

There is no upgrade option available, because the option is removed. You do not
need any product key in this release, the installation of TinyXP is unattended, apart
from in the very beginning where you choose which drive or partition to install to.

All installations are set to US English. This can be changed after installation.




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


When you boot from this
CD you have five options:

1 - TinyXP With IE/OE/WMP (With Drivers)
2 - TinyXP With IE/OE/WMP (Without Drivers)
3 - TinyXP Without IE/OE/WMP (With Drivers)
4 - TinyXP Without IE/OE/WMP (Without Drivers)
5 - Boot Into Acronis Backup + Restore

Abbreviations from above:

IE = Internet Explorer 7 Web Browser
OE = Outlook Express Email Client
WMP = Windows Media Player 11




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


All four installations of TinyXP include the following items,
these are all automatically installed along with Windows:

Service Pack 2 For Windows XP
133 Hotfixes Up To 12th June 2007
Flash Player v9.0.28.0
Opera v9.21 (only installed on options without Internet Explorer 7)
Prio (Task Manager Priority Saver) v1.9.6
Royale Noir and Royale Blue Themes
Thunderbird v2.0.0.0 (only installed on options without Outlook Express)
Vista Aero Glass Theme v4
Vista Drive Indicator v3.1.1.0
VMware 5 Tools v5.5.4 Build 44386 (only installed if you install Windows in VMware 5)

Other added items in system32:

cdimage.exe (Lets you make ISO's on the command line)
CDR.exe (This is whats used on the right click of optical drives to close the CD tray)
lame_enc.dll (Many encoding programs require this for MP3 encoding)
layout.dll (This gives you the "Save desktop icon layout" option on right click of Recycle Bin)
makecab.exe (More up to date version that actually works)
On-Screen Keyboard (osk.exe) (nLite removes this as part of a bigger component)
pskill.exe (Kill processes on the command line, without needing switches)
sleep.exe (Make a batch command file pause for a given period of time)
Video res changer to force 1024 x 768 on install (XP normally installs @ 640x480)




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here is a breakdown of the five boot options:

For Microsoft fans...
The first two options include Internet Explorer 7 Web Browser, Outlook Express Email Client and
Windows Media Player 11 so Windows XP is completely up to date and as Bill Gates intended.

For people who don't like Microsoft programs...
The second two options do not include Internet Explorer 7, Outlook Express, or Windows Media
Player 11. In the second two options where IE/OE/WMP are removed, Opera v9.21 is installed to
replace Internet Explorer and Mozilla Thunderbird v2.0.0.0 is installed to replace Outlook Express.

Automatic Driver Installation...
Options one and three both include drivers to cover the following: Chipset,
CPU, Ethernet LAN Cards, SATA (Mass Storage) and Wireless Ethernet.

No Drivers Included...
Options two and four do not contain those drivers - this is in case you have SATA
problems with the first or third options, or if you just want to install your own drivers.

Acronis Backup + Restore...
Option five allows you to backup your existing partition(s) before installing Windows, or you can
quickly restore a backup made previously with Acronis. This version of Acronis True Image Home
is safe to use if you want to back up Windows Vista.




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[Bugs&Fixes]

Minor fixes and some tweaks for better performance

------------------------------------------

[ATTENTION!]

---WHEN YOU INSTALL DRIVERS MAKE SURE TO WAIT FOR ALL THE SEPARATE DRIVER MODULES TO BE INSTALLED BEFORE YOU REBOOT, THIS IS [NOT!] DONE AUTOMATICALLY!!---

You need to be patient when plugging in those drivers, after you started a driver install you must make sure that all the driver components has been installed before reboot (can be multiple popups) ..this does only require for a click on the "automatic install" button...multiple times if you are installing Audio for example. This is a result of the Shell Hardware Detection beeing deactivated...will save resources but requires patience. Decision was made to do this considering that drivers wont be installed everyday...but you surely would like to have the extra resources gained at hand everyday...right?


[Issues]

ADD/REMOVE Program will have issues if not all systemdrivers are properly plugged in, make sure you install all your drivers before messing about with it.

[Greets]

Thanks for the feedback, much appreciated!

A side note:
Please try to be realistic when it comes to what to expect of functionality, this is meant for hardcore gaming or benching primarily...not as an 24/7 OS that can install and run all those gadgets you might think of.

I'll give it a go, although it look slike it may be even more minimal than Micro was...

At least it is a reasonable sized download... TinyXP is around 700mb - and a torrent at that. No chance of grabbing a torrent at work (will get a big smack if I try that!)

I just tried MicroXP with a network connection tonight for the first time. I had the computer running, plugged in the Network Cable but it still had the Network the Red Crossmark on it in the task bar. I rebooted the computer and the Network is connected now but I cannot see the network. I might need to load Client for Microsoft networks? I'm not sure will try it out tomorrow.

Have you had any luck with your connection?

Ryan

I've had no trouble getting it on the network, and can browse the web, etc. Trouble is there is "ipconfig" under command prompt. I can also ping it from another XP machine on the network but I can't connect to it via Map Network Drive or similar. It always asks for credentials and rejects no matter what is entered. I tried setting up a user on both machines with the same logon credentials - no joy.

Has anyone managed to map a network drive to or browse shares on a TinyXP PC?

Cheers

Can i use tinyxp on computers that are running os's like windows 98 and 2000 ?
And if i dont like it after using the os for awhile is their a way to change it back to your normal os ?

tinyXP is the operating system. you can change back if you either use different Hard disk Drives or image files.

I tried it yesterday and can't network either. I played with it for a couple of hours and it does say that you can't network, but I can't even get the net working on it.
