My Collection of Computers and Virtual PC Operating Systems

Well, since I started this blog two days ago, it's about time that I make my first collection list. This time it will be about my computers and operating systems which I have in Microsoft Virtual PC 2007. Since 1999, I started growing up with computers and they were the biggest parts of my childhood. Also, starting in 2010, I was watching Virtual PC videos on YouTube made by stevethemeave45, FreightExpress1993, Gabriel37451, etc. and started to use operating systems in that virtual program. Without further ado, let's get started.

Computers I currently have:
  • A Custom-Built Thermaltake PC with Windows 10 Home (This is officially my main computer and it's great.)
  • HP Pavilion p6230f with Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (I got this PC for Christmas in 2009, and I still use it today.)
  • Dell Optiplex GX260 with Windows XP Professional SP2 (This is my first Windows XP Professional PC.)
  • HP Pavilion a618x with Windows XP Home Edition (This PC sometimes freezes up after at least 20 minutes unless the mouse is active.)
  • HP Pavilion a700n with Windows XP Home Edition SP2 (This was my second HP PC, but the computer's motherboard broke after seven years of using it. How will I ever fix it?)
  • HP Vectra VL 6/350 Series 8 DT with Windows 98 (I don't know why this PC is now rare, but it's a good thing I have it.)
  • HP Vectra VL 6/400 Series 8 DT with Windows 98 SE
  • Fujitsu Lifebook LH531 with Windows 7 (This laptop runs faster than my other one.)
  • TOSHIBA NB205 with Windows XP Home Edition SP3 (This is my first laptop.)
Computers I used to have:
  • A Custom-Built PC with Windows 95 (I cannot remember which brand this PC is, but it was my first computer. Too bad I don't have it anymore.)
  • HP Pavilion 710 CTO with Windows XP Home Edition (This was my first HP PC, especially with the amazing HP Tour Guide program. I don't know what happened to it since the last time I used it.)
Operating Systems I have in Microsoft Virtual PC 2007:
  • Windows 1.0
  • Windows 2.0
  • Windows 3.0 (This OS doesn't seem to work very well.)
  • Windows 3.1
  • Windows 3.11 for Workgroups (I haven't used this OS in a long time!)
  • Windows NT 3.51 (This OS doesn't work for now.)
  • Microsoft Windows Chicago 4.00.122
  • Windows 95 May Test Release (This version of this OS has some junk on the desktop.)
  • Windows 95 (I'm glad I still use this OS in Virtual PC since my first computer had it.)
  • Windows 95 Plus!
  • Windows 95 with Microsoft Plus! For Kids (I really think the themes and programs are interesting, plus I believe the theme's sounds are also heard in Humongous Entertainment games.)
  • Windows Nashville Beta 1 Build 999 (This is a beta of Windows 96.)
  • Windows NT 4.0 (The graphics of the images always mess up on this OS, and I cannot get the sound to work.)
  • Windows NT 5.0 (Just like stevethemeave45 tried (according to one of his YouTube videos), I had some issues with the installation of this OS once. Shouldn't I find a way to fix the problem by any chance?)
  • Windows 98 (The VHD of this OS has 15.9 GB.)
  • Windows 98 SE (I can't get this version of the OS to work anymore because a couple of needed files were automatically deleted for no reason.)
  • Windows 98 Plus! (The Plus! 98 pack has some awesome themes.)
  • Windows 99 (Is this a beta OS? Or is it fake?)
  • Windows 2000 Beta 3 Build 1946
  • Windows 2000 Professional SP4
  • Microsoft Georgia Beta 1 Build 2380
  • Windows ME
  • Windows Neptune Build 5111 (I tried installing this OS, but the virtual machine won't understand the ISO. I will have to do it in VirtualBox instead.)
  • Windows Whistler Build 2296 Professional
  • Windows Whistler Build 2410 Professional
  • Windows Whistler Build 2446 Professional
  • Windows Whistler Build 2475 Professional (My all-time favorite version of Windows Whistler!)
  • Windows Whistler Build 2481 Professional
  • Windows Whistler Build 2486 Professional
  • Windows XP Home Edition (It turns out that the VHD has an issue with the SYSTEM folder.)
  • Windows XP Professional (This OS has Microsoft Plus! manually installed on it. I really like this OS a lot.)
  • Windows XP Professional Media Center Edition 2005 SP3 (I felt like using this OS in Virtual PC 2007 because, while browsing on YouTube, I saw that legoking831 had this OS on his HP desktop computer. I don't have this OS installed on the virtual machine's VHD file yet, but I will try to find a safe copy of an ISO someday.)
  • Windows XP Professional Performance Edition SP3 (This OS uses the same startup and shutdown sequences as Windows 2000.)
  • Windows Server 2003 (I finally have this OS running!)
  • Windows CE 5.0 (This mobile OS is cool. Too bad you can't find a way to shut it down.)
  • Windows Longhorn Build 3706 (Just like what I was doing with Windows NT 4.0, I could not get the sound to work. This beta OS runs really slow because things have been making it mess up left and right on it.)
  • Windows Longhorn Build 4008
  • Windows Longhorn Build 4015
  • Windows Vista Home Premium (This is an awesome OS.)
  • Windows 8 Consumer Preview
Whoa, it took me like an hour for me to list this stuff. That's all the computers and Virtual PC operating systems I have for now, just to let you know. I wish I still had my HP Pavilion 710 CTO PC. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed reading this list. See you later!
