Yeah I was also able to get 3D views working, briefly.

Thanks for sharing these screenshots! I'm pretty sure a couple people here including myself appreciate it.
By the way, i know this is a bit off topic, but does anyone know of a cheap itanium pc I could purchase? If not that's fine.
Legends say if you read this signature, you'll come across good fortune. Lucky you!

Itaniums are super rare. Believe me, I want one really bad. Definitely on the top of my list of computers I'm after. The problem with Itanium as an architecture is that it's totally dead, and was only really used in super high-end workstations and servers even when it was used. While there are some on eBay, they are all at least $800. It would be a royal pain to get one shipped as well.
My chosen virtual machine programs:
Windows 9x+, Intel macOS: VMware Workstation Pro 16
Older than 9x: PCEm
PPC Mac OS: QEMU

You may need to reduce your screen resolution (800x600, 1024x768 are likely to work) to enable DWM. Also, make sure you have full graphics hardware acceleration enabled (Display properties and DirectX Diagnostics), and that the Direct3D tests complete successfully.
LDDM is not required for pre-reset DWM; in fact, no LDDM drivers are actually known from this era (I've heard rumors of an LDDM driver being available or included with 4074 for Intel 915 chipsets, but never been able to find it). What is required is an XP driver with working 3D rendering via D3D9 interfaces (no need for actual D3D9-level shader support in the hardware, but the driver must accept D3D9 API calls - D3D8 may be enough, but D3D7 is definitely not).
