FYI Haswell mobos do not support XP.


what does this mean?
PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy. http://www.steamgamesales.com/

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.
