For Sempron and Athlon XP: Soyo KT880 Dragon 2

The Software Extras

You can only find the additional software on the CD if you search the CD manually or if you pay very close attention during driver installation. Assigning the additional software to the "Driver" menu item may not exactly be your best option. If the driver CD is in the drive, you first need to select the correct board from a list. After that, all key drivers and DirectX 9.0b can be installed.

Wasay Pro Maguc Plus Lite (in Chinese, English and Japanese) can set recovery points in order to restore a certain system state, when necessary. Wasay is triggered and included during each boot process, and it starts from the Windows desktop. In the Lite Version, users can only set one restore point, though, meaning that this little bonus is essentially useless considering the equally effective tools offered by Windows.

Wasay Image can create partition images. However, only FAT16/FAT32 partitions can be designated as targets.

Panda Antivirus is provided as a 30 day test version. During that time, you can use just one automatic update, though.
