My old-new WinXP machine started working again, this time with nForce2-based motherboard.
Unfortunately Pro Tools LE is hanging for some reason, so I can't use digi001 sound interface with it for now. Maybe there is an broken DDR RAM stick installed?

Now it's time to collect all post-2014 updates! (not those from POSready 2009, as I can't find an actual list of updates compatible with non-SSE2 systems yet)

@df5t0rw Mostly because VirtualBox removed 3D acceleration for older Windows guests, so I can't use it for playing older games (especially when they use some DRM crap incompatible with Wine). Similar for other software and hardware, like previously mentioned Digi001 sound interface and Pro Tools LE 6.x.

@BluRaf Oh. Sorry. Took the time to check and well... yeah my bad.

Did you tried qemu with hardware passthrough for the items you what to use winXP with ?

@df5t0rw I should have some low-end Quadro card for PCIe which might be working with XP. The other problem is that my current main PC (Ryzen/AM4) doesn't have PCI slots and PCI-PCIe adapters only fits low-end PCI card, so this won't help with Digi001.
