It is a server motherobard, but you should have no problems running any OS you choose.

Also, the CPU 2 slot could possible hamper the instalation of a large GPU, and the bnoard seems crowded, so some aftermarket coolers won't fit, unless it's elevated on heatpipes. What kind of system will you use it for?

Just so you know thats not for gaming or pretty much anything you'd do with a home pc, it is strictly server.

Yeah........is that SCSI i see?? Definatly a server board. But liek he said, crowded, not many PCI slots. Cool that it goes dual processor but you may as well buy an X2.

I agree, nice board for a server but not really a gaming board.

Oh, and yes, Media Center Edition of XP and Pro version of XP support Dual Processors/ Dual Core Processors.

And back to the original question, yeah, should support XP pro without a problem.
