Hey beta collectors

I have a dell inspiron laptop 1501 and I want to put longhorn on it
What is the best build (post 4015) to install, I was thinking of 4074 but I wasn't to sure

Here are the specs

Dell Inspiron 1501

AMD 64 x2 TL-60 Dual Core (1.8Ghz)

2 GB Ram

120GB Hard Drive

I don't have the laptop with me right now so I can't tell you the video card model exactly

Its an ATI something 256Mb

I'd worry less, your specs make mine look pathetic, and in my spare time I've run pretty much all the 32 bit versions of longhorn.
So it becomes which builds are the most fun, I reccomend 4039 & 4074

The video card might be problematic, the newer ones from ATI tend to be a PITA to get working with longhorn. If I where you I'd take the virtual machine route. In that case I recommend the 3xxx builds, there's something special about really old builds. :)

If Build 4015 Lab o6 or Build 4018 Lab 06 were leaked, would they be good builds to put on his laptop and be able to get all hardware working?

mewrox99 : You can find the lastest XP driver for your laptop and use it with Longhorn build 3xxx and 4xxx. As I know, almost recently hardware driver for XP can use with Longhorn. My suggest is build 3718 or 4074, ect ( I like the 3718's Plex Style and 3718 is one of the most well-known stable build, it has platform that's closest to XP SP1 ). Make sure adding those drivers to your Longhorn boot cd, unless you want some errors while booting up the install cd.

I has a problem, if I try and install Build 4074 on Nforce 4 based laptop, I get a BSOD when it has nearly finished loading the setup program!

Longhorn 4015.Lab06 has leaked and it's on the FTP server and is quite common on other sites too, 4018 Hasn't leaked

I don't remember it leaking recently. When was it leaked? All I know is of 4015.main, which has leaked AGES ago.

Has Build 4015 Lab 06 REALLY leaked by now, or are you having me on? I can't check the server to be sure right now because I am at school.

4015.main - the leaked build
4015.lab06 - the unleaked build

It's an incompatibility with nForce 4's SATA.

But, even though I wouldn't recommend putting any Longhorn build on your laptop, if you strongly insist on doing so, use Build 3718. If you are wondering why, it because, it is highly customizable, has a fairly stable version of WinFS, the sidebar has useful tiles like searching for things, multiple dsektops, and there is the nice looking plex theme and the DCE engine where the windows spin around and spin when closed. Despite all of this, it has the same level of stability and compatibility as XP with SP1. If you are concerned about security, get AVG free edition.

PS: Sorry if you already know every single bit of this, I am just trying to help you. :)

Always glad to help! :) Well, if you are happy now, I think a mod can lock this topic now, don't you think?

Stop asking Mods to lock topics. Firstly, someone may have a similar question, and post in this topic, which is preferable to them creating yet another 'Longhorn on my laptop' topic, and secondly, I believe we are only supposed to lock topics if either it goes against the rules or the topic starter asks us to lock it.

Can you stop ruining my posting experience, pleasekthanks

to the OP, why don't you just run it in a VM? longhorn would run slower than vista on those specs as longhorn isn't designed for such highend specs (not exactly highend but to longhorn it is)

Or, he could maybe use Build 4093 of Longhorn. That seems to have many of the features Vista actually has and in my opinion, is exactly waht Vista should of been!

What? 4093 is a completely broken mess of a build...
