    I just upgraded my cf-27 to windows xp sp3 installation went fine . I'm connected
    to my network with a d-link usb wifi adapter confirmed connection by pinging the
    router have %100 signal strength , however when I try to open any website on google
    with internet explorer I get the famous internet explorer can't display web page . I tried
    several options still not resolved . Anything I'm missing ? , Has anyone had this issue
    with xp and how was it resolved.

    Maybe DNS is not configured. Check it by pinging google.com for example.
    There is no new MSIE for WinXP. Opera for XP, maybe another old version browser.

    Maybe a issue with internet explorer. You could put a older version of Firefox on a USB or CD

    Also, you shouldn't be connecting any PC running XP to the internet, there are NO security updates, and there are lots of exploits, having it on your network is a liability because it WILL be used to exploit all your other systems, its an unsafe OS to still be connected to the internet, only reason to still use XP is due to legacy software, dont use XP as a daily OS because it is not.

    XP (will work) or nothing (will not work) because of, you know, some RAM limitations of CF-27 :))
    CF-27 is ok for wheel replacement etc.

    I totally understand using it with legacy tools that require old OS's, but with such a limited CPU, and so little RAM, it will be a pain to navigate any recent website, plus, its unsafe.

    If you do plan on using this as a main laptop then I wouldn’t go with it. I’d go with either a 29 or 30 or even a MK1 31 if you got the $$

    Let's start with more info.
    Why Win XP?
    Is this your main online computer?

    Have you considered Linux? POP OS is very clean looking.
