XP Home Setup
« on: September 22, 2009, 03:27:26 PM »
I am getting ready to install Mach3 for the 1st time for a machine using XP Home SP1. I have Mach3 installed on a PC to tinker with it to learn it. Are there any tips for setting up XP Home up for a machine? I am not going to use Win Update & will not use the machine for ANYTHING but Mach...No internet connection or other any programs. I have an 8GB solid state drive.

You got the right idea. You should have close to a 1 ghz processor and 512 mb of ram .You may also optimise xp , instructions found on top of this page under downloads/mach & lazycam/documentation.

If it all runs OK Steve, which I am sure it will, don't be tempted to later install the Win XP SP2 update. This caused problems for me which were only cured when I rolled back to the SP1 condition.
