Closed Winxp home & phenom ii x4 Tags: CPUs Chipsets Phenom Last response: August 21, 2011 12:17 AM in CPUs Share need2know August 19, 2011 3:24:53 AM Almost have my PC built. I will be installing Winxp 32-bit for now. Any problems I should watch out for? I realize winxp won't utilizes all 4gb of ram. Anything else I should know? Will it see/use all 4 cores of the cpu? Thanks! PC Specs: AMD Phenom II x4 955, 2x2gb ddr3, hd 6870, 500gb hdd, 760G & SB710 (north & south bridges; are those the same as the "chipset"? for when I look for chipset drivers?).

You will need to have SATA drivers on a separate disc in order to install Windows XP on a SATA hard drive. It might have to be on a floppy disc. If you do not have a floppy drive, then you can "slipstream" SATA drivers with Windows XP. You might as well slipstream SP3 too. http://tech.icrontic.com/articles/slipstream_windows_xp...
