Upgrade from 98 -> 2000 -> XP

  NOrrTH 21:10 17 Mar 2007

I'm trying to upgrade my 98SE to XP and used the XP Upgrade Advisor and it says that my Nividia Geforce 3 Ti 200 is not able to run XP without more files. I went into "Full Details" and they recommend a possible solution is to upgrade to Windows 2000 first and then try the Upgrade Advisor again.

Unfortunately I can find a Windows 2000 Upgrade Advisor to check for compatibility issues.

My friend has that card and runs XP without problems and has never had 2000 on it.

It may in XP see the drivers required to run it & not require any other drivers.

A 1.6 ghz Pentium 4 with 512mb RAM and a GeForce 3 card will run XP no problem at all. You might find its a tad slower than 98 was but thats all. I don't see why the graphics card would have any problem with XP as theres XP drivers for all the Nvidia cards.
