Default SSD boots Windows XP slow.

Restarted computer because after signing on after signing off the computer was unresponsive. Restarted computer 30 minutes ago. Still no icons on the screen.

I am glad that I decided for an much cheaper test of a SSD drive before having a SSD installed on my Dell desktop. SSDs sure are slow.

Purchased me a computer with a SSD. That was my cheaper test.

XP is an unsupported OS and as such is a great target for viruses since there is no longer anyone working on patches to keep vulnerabilities closed up.
I'd recommend getting an OS that is still being patched regularly.

And if you desperately need to run it then use a virtual machine.

I used virtual machine on my Windows 10 computer. Not as good as the actual Windows XP.

I'm confused. What are you trying to test exactly? What other hardware is in the machine? SSDs aren't slow so something else must be going on. I'm not sure windows XP actually has full support for SSDs out of the box so that could be part of the problem maybe?

I was thinking the same thing. I had the seller install XP on the computer before shipping. Testing to see how better a SSD would be compared to a regular hard drive.

Upgrade to win 10 and the ssd will be running at its full speed. XP will see it as a thumb drive with more space than is supported and I am surprised it even ran at all.

IIRC there's no TRIM in XP.

These are both XP Professional buy, the one that installed is much faster. Even after accessing the computer from a screen saver all the icons are there. On the installed version that was on the computer when the computer was purchased the icons rake a looooooong time to appear. I could not find the driver for my wireless internet. So I used Driver Booster. Installed the driver and the wireless inter net works now.

You had a driver problem that was fixed by reinstalling the drivers then. The OS is the same version, xp and is therefore still outdated and will not recognize a 64gb thumb drive as they didn't exist when xp was coded.
XP also supports only a maximum 4gb of ram, uses drivers that the hardware is no longer in use for, so if you use new hardware you have to find drivers yourself and download them off the internet: which brings us to the fact that going on the Internet will load you up with viruses and Trojans made for xp that can no longer be detected and removed making things like online banking totally unavailable to you with any amount of safety at all. And if you play any games they will look like crap because you only support DX9.

Honestly, climb down off that unsafe and outdated dinosaur and join us in the present day.

No need to find the drivers because Driver Booster works fine. I only play Scrabble and that is on my iPad Pro.

Yes but, I installed Java on the computer now CNET Download web page can be wiewed.

None of the Microsoft web pages can be viewed. On my other XP computer all the Microsoft web pages open without any problems.

You might already have a hijack virus on it then. It is really not safe to use XP on the Internet.

That only means you don't have one that the tool looks for or that it is placed differently than the tool recognizes.
It certainly does not mean your system is malware free.
