That was the MS information on the first part of that error seen there. Upon installing first the Creative Xtreme Audio model on a new build here the auto driver web updater threw Vista drivers on XP! When at the MS update site and choosing the custom option in order to grab optional hardware updates MS also downloaded Vista drivers.
A trip to Creative's support site saw the Dec. 06 updater1 for XP while the July update was the web updater3 for Vista? Was there an updater2 for XP? This was after selecting XP as the version of Windows and still seeing Vista as the update. The drivers on the original cd are for XP but make sure not to allow the installer to go online for Vista drivers.
For the latest Catalyst 7.10 since the X1xxx series cards still see support you go to the ATI.AMD support site for downloads and select XP as the version of Windows being run to get that update. Drivers & Software
The drivers/software for the board should go right on when Windows is first being installed. You can download the updated set at the Asus support site.
