Your specs for System Two and previous posts indicate that the laptop is running Vista x86, whereas the extended kernel really only supports Vista x64 at this time (although the developer has expressed an intention to work on x86). The relevant thread at MSFN is 110 pages now, so please forgive my laziness in not linking you to the developer’s comments there. An MSFN member started a new tutorial just yesterday, Guide - Vista extended kernel installation.

Ohh sorry, i didnt update my specs here, ia m running Vista x64, as it turns out the laptop always ran Windows XP 32 (it came with Vista but some time after purchasing it it was downgraded to XP) , then i upgraded to Vista 32 and recently discovered it was 64 bit, so i upgraded.

About MSFN post, i created an account but im not recieving the mail confirmation, i checked the spelling and everithing, but for now i cant use it unless i use InPrivate Tab... im going to do that RN

INSTALATION WAS SUCCESFUL, thank you Vistaar

About the list of compatible programs, the one there are outdated, i want to run Edge or Chrome, chromium based web browsers perform much better in my case (Speedometer 2.0 Mypal: 6.90 [Firefox 68 based] Google Chrome 49: 12.01)

Chrome and Chromium compatibility with the extended kernel is actually more trouble-free than Firefox, but I don’t think anyone has had much success with Edge yet. I see you changed your specs. Intel Celeron M 540 does support SSE3 that Chrome now requires. (Chrome 49 only needed SSE2.) One concern: Vista x64 probably needs more RAM.

I could only install SlimJet (Chromium 92) any other Chromium web browser failed in some way, from what i Remember my CPU does support SSE 3

Here’s a July 25 post showing Chrome 92 working on Vista, but unfortunately the post immediately below that shows Edge failing. (The extended kernel hasn’t changed since May, although the developer says he is working on a new version.) Here’s a Oct 22 post showing Chromium 97 working on Vista 6003.

i see, so, how do i install Chromium 97? i couldnt find the installer

I checked my CPU with AIDA64 (CPU-Z and HWinfo64 do not work with extended kernel) it has SSE3 and Suplemental SSE3
