X99 Windows XP Install Guide

Post #1 by nickolp1974 » Mon Oct 27, 2014 11:00 pm

Finally got this cracked with no issues so heres how you do it.

First go HERE to download the XP INF files and extract to a usb stick, there should be 2 folders, Chipset and MEI
Before you carry on download any other drivers which may be of use to you, GFX, LAN, etc and place on your stick along with any programs you require.

This guide is based on using a mech HDD only

Reset your board to defaults before you continue.

1. Go to your bios and disable everything thats not needed, for example,
Wireless adapters,
Bluetooth,
Fast boot,
Audio,
All storage ports other than the one where your HDD is connected and this needs setting to IDE
Hyperthreading
EIST
C states
And any other power saving features your particular board may have.

Now go to your CPU settings and Enable "Limit CPUID maximum"

Now your good to go! If you do get a hang it will be at the 34minutes mark, you shouldn't if you have done everything right! But if you do just press reset and windows will skip that particular hardware it was searching for.


In Windows

Locate to Device manager and find the SMB bus controller and right click and go to update driver and click on manual and point it to the chipset folder on your USB stick.
Now goto PCI simple communications but this time point to the MEI folder.

Now thats basically it and your good to go, if you would like any of the other base system drivers installing just point them at the MEI folder, theres around 40!!!

Good Luck :thumbup:

I think I might...I have to get onto tweaking RAM timings and running 32M will let me know what is and what's not working...
