I'm working on getting my FX-55 ready for superpi 1M for HWbot. Would it be worth me getting XP Pro 64bit specifically for that competition?

edit, also, is the 64 bit version necessarily recommended? It won't help me to have more than 2 sticks of RAM anyway.

Good news! I shaved half a second off my SuperPi 1M time with XP 32bit (MicroXP)

Bad news! My Windows 7 install is bricked now. I get an "Error loading operating system" after POST now when I try to start up from the hard drive with Windows 7 on it.

+1.

See whether your drive(s) are setup for AHCI or Legacy. Win 7 prefers AHCI and XP really likes Legacy, check that setting and give it a try. Having it setup for the wrong setting there will cause errors like that.

From the multiple 939 / nforce 4 boards I been messing with lately.. None have AHCI at all.
Even the ABIT that claimed that it was AHCI compliant had no setting.

The EVGA board needed a rocket 622a card with AHCI pass-through to boot SSD.
THE ABIT board would not work at all with SSD.
THE asus board booted right from the onboard sata
the DFI lanparty wouldn't work with SSD onbaord - did not try a card.

I think win 7 will boot on any standard sata drive as I got win 7 working on all nforce boards I had.

You're correct. There is no AHCI on any of those boards. However, all of those boards will run a SSD with no problem at all unless there is physically something wrong with the board. You just had some bad settings bro. I've had SSD's on boards and platforms way before 939 and all of those worked.

I "appreciate" the socket 939!

It was the first system, by which i learned how to properly overclock, even though it was late, in 2006: Athlon 64 3800+ and DFI nForce 4.

I snatched up a new CPU cooler and another 8800GT today to complete my s939 rig, I will report back with what kind of OC I can get.

Also, a quick question for you guys, I am having trouble getting SLI to work with my 8800's, I don't even have an option in the NV control panel to enable it. Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

Here is a picture of it setup on top of a motherboard box tongue.gif
