Windows Xp. I have not heard of a motherboard that is incompatible to windows xp Windows Xp being the operating system installs on the hard drive therefore not being affected by the motherboard unless the bios doesnt have the required drivers. which can always be updated. Is this answer the question if not you might want to give a little bit more input in what your needing.

Hi,

I have to agree here. It is not the board, but things like not enough memory, not a large enough hard drive (for very old computers), etc. Therefore, the motherboard not permitting you to install XP is kind of a myth. Give it a go if you have enough memory and it should be fine. (please note: XP takes a lot of resources, so if you have a slow CPU, it might seem slower than the older OS since it has to load more items upon startup)
