Haha yes everytime I do an xp install I get "In the Air Tonight" stuck in my head.

this is only on the sp2 disks? i have a sp1 disk and i dont hear this sound.... but after this it all goes downhill =P
May 2nd, 2007
(0)
The sound isn't played until the final setup screen, where you choose the machine name etc. Obviously it would also have to already have drivers for your sound device or else it's not going to play.

vista kicks xp's ass...you used the wrong bluesceen for XP. that's the windows 98 bluescreen
(0)
If he's not completed the XP install due to mentioned bluescreen, wouldn't he still get the older OS' BSOD?
May 2nd, 2007
(0)
I actually got a bluescreen during this part of the XP install before due to some bad hardware. It was indeed the standard XP blue-screen, not the 9x version.
May 2nd, 2007
(0)
if you're going to let that ruin the funny, shame on you.
May 2nd, 2007
(0)
what's so great about vista?
May 2nd, 2007
(0)
the installer runs on a very minimal hardware independent version of XP. Also that music only plays during the minisetup. To me, that makes the joke not work because of how inaccurate it is. well come to think of it even if that music did play and you would get the 98 bluescreen....its still wouldn't be funny
(0)
yeah pull the stick out of your *ss plz k thnx
May 2nd, 2007
(0)
Yay, the 2 hour delay between my computer f*cking up and getting a fresh start.
May 2nd, 2007
(0)
Not funny, but pretty accurate. Also, how did anyone ever get screenshots of the installation screen?
May 2nd, 2007
(0)
I was wondering the same...
May 2nd, 2007

The BSOD sealed a 5. XP is still 1000x better than ME though.

5'd for my countless times of seeing these screens on my own monitor.

Windows 95 ftw. I love it. I don't have to worry about viruses, because no one else uses it.

And a fine ending too! Write in the description what OS you'd rather be using, and I'll... umm... six this? Or maybe fav it-

While i don't agree that XP is crap, I think the site is funny.. The end made it five worthy.

You will need to reboot after watching this YTMND.

Yeah, too bad no one has their sound cards in at this point. But this is the same music you'll get if you call them! It's their hold music too!
May 2nd, 2007
(0)
Hey I use and like XP as well, but I still hate MS. Hear about the new versions of Office? $300+ and they don't even give you the CD. You have to aquire the "backup discs" seperately. :P

Blue Screen, for the win?

its funny, but I've never had windows xp freeze up my machine when I wasn't playing some game that caused it
(0)
The sync was perfect. And everything written in this YTMND about XP rings true as far as my goofy *ss is concerned.

Anti-Microsoft jokes are about as funny as a the n*gg*r-white IQ ratio.

I'm willing to bet that the longest either of you have used a Mac was during a 40 minute class in Junior High Running OS 9. The Mac OS X operating system takes about a week to fully get used to if you've been using Windows for a prolonged time. I hated my Mac for a week, but then after some exposure you realize both Windows and OS X have their advantages.
May 2nd, 2007

Nope, I used a Mac in a store and wanted to cry.

CreepPipe, thats very true. Its fun running OS X on my VMWare Virtual Machine under XP Pro

I love Windows, but this is hilarious + original (kinda) = 4
May 2nd, 2007

Loved the ending, but that's a Windows 98 error screen, replace it with a STOP error.
May 2nd, 2007

This is pretty funny. You really over exaggerate, though.
(0)
Nice buildup, a funny twist, spot-on sync, AND a bluescreen punchline? You my friend earned yourself a FAV'ing.

I was gonna rate this 3 stars, but the end of it wins.
May 2nd, 2007

extremely boring, nearly unwatchable
May 2nd, 2007
(0)
it was a little long, and it the end not very funny. the funniest part was closing the window and not having to look at it anymore. i don't see the point in this ytmnd. please remove it and save max's bandwidth. YOU COULD BE A VITAL PART IN SAVING YTMND!f
May 2nd, 2007
(0)
yeah, that's why I'm not getting vista until I get compatibility issues with XP. OH WOW YOU CAN SEE THROUGH WINDOWS! AMAZING.
(0)
And what a ride it is!!!

You win at sync.

5'd for fitting ending. Windows 2000 mo better (and don't have to activate install)

There is no music during the actual installation of Windows XP. The music on this ytmnd plays after the installation is done and it wants you to configure the OS. But, what kind of ytmnd has no sound?
(0)
5'd for the sound

Yes! XP doesn't have better handling of DLL files or an entirely redesigned API. Nope, it's just Windows 95 with a UI added on. Idiot.
May 2nd, 2007

It's funny, because you could have done this site with Vista and I would have given it a 5.

Who's the composer of the music? Does anyone know? Sounds sort of Brian Eno-ish...

Only the more experienced users won't see those issues very often in Windows XP. However, I see these problems all the time at work. Most people just don't know what they're doing when they sit down in front of a PC. The music is just called "title.wma" and can be found on any copy of Windows XP in C:_Windows_System32_oobe_images_title.wma. The title is "Windows Welcome Music" and the artist is Microsoft. :P

If your windows XP crashes, there's very likly a good reason for it, mainly linked to your possible costant stream of p2p priated programs or your mass ammount of porn folder.

Hey, had to give people time to read the text. If it went by too quickly, I'd have dozens of people crying about it flipping to the next screen before they were done reading.
