    Hi All,

    Just a quick question.

    Can i still run XP Pro on a Asus M2N32-SLI Premium VISTA Edition Motherboard.

    Does the "Vista Edition" mean it has other perks available when Vista is installed ?

    Regards
    Steve

    I've never heard of a motherboard that can only run Vista and not XP. I would think it's just a marketing phrase to let you now it's fine to use with Vista.

    thats because newer chipsets and processors are too fast :) the timing is all out as far as the older OS's are concerned so they miss alot of critical events or fire them off at the wrong time. End result: BSOD.

    i guess "VISTA Edition Motherboard" means that MoBo contains disk with fista drivers. The same thing was when win xp appeared, there were slogans "desinged for win xp" and so on.
