Re: Rookie needs some help please!
This board seems to be usable. However, it appears that there is no IDE connector. I have a Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 Hard Drive (640 GB, SATA)
I would like to install XP Home (Service Pack 2) on this hard drive. I read somewhere that I need drivers to do this. Does anybody know where I could find these drivers if I bought this board. Also, I inserted the CPU onto the PC Chips P53G, which apparently doesn't support 45nm CPU's. Does this board accept 45nm CPU's, and is my CPU still usable. Does this board support 667 MHz DDR2 RAM, and 800 MHz DDR2 RAM (240 Pin)? Any other advice with this build? I think thhe board will do, however, I am a liitle concerned with the lack of an IDE connector.
