There are no XP drivers for Haswell boards. It is a dead operating system next year.

so say you were to install xp on a haswell board... does this mean you wouldn't be able to update or install anything(audio and network)?

what about manual drivers downloaded online?

If you have you Windows 7 disk you can use that to easily put the Windows 7 MBR and boot manager back onto the HDD, no format required.

Or just use the repair feature on the disc.

So WyzeGuy. I downloaded GRUB 2 (as its called now) and I have no Idea how to use the thing. I cant figure out if its bootable or what. There no EXE file and I see no indication of any boot files either. I'm stumped.
