I tried various "machines" from that list but the issue still persists.

I opened devices manager of XP and selected the yellow question mark
relate to the "video controller (VGA compatible)".
Under details tab, ID hardware, I can read the following code:


Usually if you search google for that ID Hardware code, it reports
vendor, product and so on about the hardware.
But this time seems like the above code is just a "dummy" hardware ID.
vendor: 1234 ???
dev:1111 ???

I suspect it is dummy hardware...

Anyway I can use the system without any issues, ignoring that driver request.

What do you think about?
