One of the hardest things to get right when currently installing a K6 machine is to have a working Windows/DirectX/Drivers combination. Well after some sweat I’m happy to say that I finally found the perfect sweet-spot:
- Windows 2000 with unofficial SP5
- nVidia GeForce FX 5700 with series-50 drivers
- DirectX 9.0c from july 2006 (later versions may require SSE and crash on a K6 without telling you that)
This great success has lead to the update of the OS Support page with all the info one may want and need…the system doesn’t BSOD on nv4_disp.dll when running DirectX 8/9 applications and OpenGL also works fine!
