You need an update in XP to make it work... Something tells me windows 2000 was already out of support by the time this was introduced. Microsoft having a patent on parts of it, not helping either, 3rd party developers are very limited in what info they can get their hands on... I wouldn't count on anything out there...


You have absolutely no other harddisk that you could use temporarily for the vanilla XP install? even 20GB will do, you don't need anything fancy, just the install, right?

I have to review my HDD´s recycle bin to check if there is some that I can use, at least for the XP installation.

The idea is to take both the VGA and TV cards out of the board, clear the CMOS and do a Configuration Reset in the BIOS using an spare PCI VGA Card.

Then put the AGP VGA Card and connect the spare HDD, proceed with the XP install formating the HDD and see what happens.
