    Successor to D845GLLY

    yogeshsaxena

      I have Intel D845GLLY desktop board which has 2GHz. Intel Pentium 4 Processor and SD RAM upto 1GB.

      Windows XP works quite well on this, but i want to switch on Windows-7. Windows-7 is not being supported by this Desktop Board. I am looking for new Desktop board where i can put my existing 2Ghz Intel Pentium 4 processor and DDR RAM.

       

      Can anyone suggest me for a new desktop board which Supports Windows-7, DDR RAM and my existing Intel Pentium 4 processor(2 Ghz. processor).

       

      Thanks,

      Yogesh

          Their isn’t one you can get to day new because this stuff has stopped being made now so you will need to look for 2nd hand stuff.

           

          And if your looking to go 64-bit Win 7 you very likely will not be able too with this stuff.

            It's time to build or buy a new system.  But for what it's worth I have an older system running Windows7 Pro, 32bit, with no problems.

             

            Intel D845EBG2 motherboard,

            Intel Pentium 4  2.53 GHz processor,

            2GB RAM.

             

            Look for a P4 motherboard with more RAM.

            Good Luck

              Although Intel does not support Win7 on the GLLY, it will work.

               

              You'd need access to other hardware to make if fly though.  If you sysprep (utility within the O/S) a drive on an existing Win 7 machine, then install the drive in the GLLY, 7 will load just fine.  All the drivers it needs are in the O/S.

               

              I've done it.  It's fast and easy....and works perfectly.  The only challenge is the sysprep routine itself.  Best to consult with someone who knows about it.  There are some parts to it that can go south on you if you don't know what you're doing.
