Ok, I built my P5B Deluxe system last week and temporarily installed WinXP on an existing drive while waiting for the Raptor to arrive. Everything went seamlessly, from XP (Pro SP2 disc) install, Intel INF update, etc. New drive came in yesterday, so I removed the old one, formatted and installed XP on the new one, installed the SAME inf, drivers in the SAME order.<br><br>
However, this time for some unknown reason my USB ports do not work and the USB Host Controllers in the Device Manager show the dreaded exclimation mark. I have tried running the INF drivers again with no change. I have NOT tried running the USB 2.0 drivers since the readme says that SP1 or 2 installs do not need it and I didn't have to do it last time.<br><br>
At this point I don't know if I should try to fix it somehow or just try reformatting and running XP install again (groan). Any ideas what happened?<br><br>
Thanks,<br>
Mitch

My XP install includes SP2. Someone on another board suggested that being overclocked during the install might have been the cause. Trying again at stock speed.<br><br>
Thanks,<br>

Sorry, just found this, been a long busy Monday.<br><br>
I had the same problem, I posted about it in the Windows section.<br><br>
It's odd, as I am on my 4th install of XP, and each time, something different, and new breaks. The first installs I had no issues with the USB drivers...the last one, right after installing the INF driver off the CD, it rebooted and I had no USB in Windows...BIOS saw everything fine, but as soon as Windows booted, USB ports went dead.<br><br>
I did a clean install last night, updated to SP2 (the disc I bought cheap is a standard XP Pro disc), installed my video drivers, and everything seems ok....tonight I am going to install the wireless and sound and download the newest INF from Intel and install that........and HOPEFULLY it will be right, this time.........<br><br>
the sad thing is, I will have to do it all over again this weekend as my 4th hard drive arrives tomorrow and I will have to rebuild my array.....but I figure if I figure out all the mistakes and tricks now, I will only have to do it once for real with the full array.<br><br>
You can try a repair install (not a repair console) I did and it gave me USB back, but since the disc was not SP2, it caused some problems, but since you have an SP2 disc that might work for you........but I would say just do a clean install and be sure
