No Windows 2000 forums, so this was the closest...
So I'm bored and have a laptop and a Microsoft Neptune ISO. I basically want to know what damage could be done if something goes wrong. It's a 2010 Dell XPS with Windows 7 Professional. I don't care about any damage to Windows 7. It's got next to nothing on it so I could easily reinstall Windows if worst came to worst. (Otherwise there's GAG and Hiren's)
I just want to know if any physical damage could be done. I don't know if something like Neptune could neglect in any duties to protect your hardware, the only thing I could think of was it not throttling the CPU if temps get too high. (But I can monitor that myself)
Neptune is NT 5.00.5111
Why? I like Neptune, it's really cool, (tried it in VMs) I have little to do, and wanted to see if I could get drivers working for it. There appear to be Nvidia drivers for Win2k that should work. The only issue may be installing the Intel HD Graphics ones first that Nvidia usually requires. There are plenty of XP drivers too for both, and actually the correct ones, not vaguely similar predecessors. Maybe they'll work (NT 5.0 ≈ 5.1?)
I know this is silly.
I'll probably be getting a few of those.
