Crash happens after selecting Options...>Video Settings...
My only guess is it does not recognize the video card so it crashes? It's trying to run at 700+ fps and I want to turn v-sync on if that is a setting but I can't get into the settings to see. Here's the crash log:
Minecraft has crashed!
Minecraft has stopped running because it encountered a problem.

Always run separate versions, especially older/very different ones, in separate game directories - the format of options.txt for 1.15, much less 1.6.4, the current version as of the date in your archived link, is also very different from Beta 1.8's (this file is the leading cause of older versions crashing when people try to run them. This also goes for attempting to manually edit the file; for example, as the game is very bad at ensuring that the settings it reads in are within internal limits).
Otherwise, I doubt the issue has anything to do your hardware as it is an error in Java code, as opposed to a JVM/native code crash ("a fatal error has been detected..."; an array index out of bounds means that the game is trying to access an array index which is outside of the range of the array, for example, index 5 when the allowed range is 0-3. Unfortunately, the class names are obfuscated so it is impossible to say exactly what code is erroring, thus revealing the exact cause. a Google search for "fv.c(SourceFile:278)" failed to find a single result so this is certainly not a common issue).
