Windows NT5 build 1515, which is one of my favorite NT5 builds. Video driver installed and works perfectly, and I can't get sound to work yet. Network drivers also work, but the default TCP/IP protocol drivers are faulty, and I should use ones from NT4. But for now, here it is:

So I decided to reinstall OS X Snow Leopard on my Hackintosh. I was sick and tired of the crappy Intel GMA support I used. Screen tearing, various kernel panics, you know... I'm now using the DSDT method for my GMA 950, which is much better - FileZilla (one of the apps that did the screen tearing, and one of the WORST) no longer leaves artifacts from the cursor (or "mouse turds") meaning I can easily download anything I want from BetaArchive without being irritated! However I'm not changing many of the settings until I successfully upgrade to 10.6.7.

Favourite OS All Microsoft operating systems!
Server: Ugh, Server 2003.
If you don't like Windows Server 2003, is it possible to upgrade to a newer version of Windows (Server counterpart)? Surely, you could either install the latest Release Candidate or pre-RTM version of such, and convert it to a Service Pack release using maxtorix's procedure, or even install Windows Server 8, if you can't purchase your own copy of Windows.
That's what I would do if I was in such a situation, however, if you're concerned that an upgrade might somehow damage your Windows installation, I understand.
