Just booted a Windows 2000 VM I archived 15 years ago

This was certainly one of the stranger, but also very intriguing things I’ve done so far this year.

Alone the fact it’d prompt you for the setup CD (!) when simply removing one keyboard layout and configuring another as the default (both had been installed before). Since Windows 7 or so I’ve not been prompted for the setup media anymore.

Currently I’m trying to get VS2019 to build binaries which will eventually run on Windows 2000 or XP. Haven’t settled on the exact version, yet. But XP is more likely, to be honest.
