Is it xp with sp1 or greater?

Before my time - but I think if you don't , you need to install xp in a partition on the first 130 gb or so of the drive.

I might suggest, if you are going to buy a new AMD board, Buy one of the new boards with an AM3+ socket. They are backward compatible with AM3 Chips, but will allow you to upgrade to the AM3+ chips in the future if you so desire. Although I don't own one I also understand they have the UEFI bios.
