You should have no issue installing 32-bit XP. The manual may say that you CAN install XP 64-bit, Vista, etc. If it can handle 64 bit XP, then it is almost guaranteed that it will run 32 bit XP.

thanks for the resonse:

Purchased system recently:
Asus P7P55D EVO
Gigabyte GV-R467ZL-1GI
Western Digital 750 Gb SATA
Plextor CD/DVD
Cosair 2 Gb(CM3X2G1333C9)-2 total
Cosair 650watt power Supply
Intel i5 2.6 GHz processor

Tried to load Win XP 32 bit and got blue screen several times
Tried to load Vista 32 bit and hangs up for over 30min to 1 hr on loading files.
Tried one stick of memory with each without luck.
Any help appreciated. System runs without overheating.

Which exact RAM kit do you have? Did you manually set the RAM speed/timings/voltage to the recommended specs in the BIOS? Have you run Memtest86+ overnight to test for RAM errors?

You said you tried the installations with one stick of RAM. Did you try each stick by itself?

thanks for the reply. I have a pair of 2Gb corsair ddr3 13333 ram. Surprising that i got vista ultimate 32 bit to eventually load. On windows compatibility site they list the asus p7p55 as not compatible with xp or vista basic, but with vista 64 bit. ram chips now in place and working. Seems like this is a software/hardware compatibility issue. Never changed the default settings in bios except did disable usb at one time but this did not help. My xp cd's were from 2002 and three separate copies allowed me to only to load the setup files before the blue screen of death.

Hey, I got WIN XP 64 bit to run on this MB. The issue was with the drive controller. By selecting IDE Mode with compatibility XP was able to see the controller and did not blue screen.

Have it up and running without any issues.

Hope that helps!
