In regard to your question, yes, you can try to use ClearLinux OS, but I just wanted to let you know that Intel® tested the board with Windows, so in that regard we can confirm that the board will work with Windows® XP, vista, and 7.
Since for those boards the processor is embedded in order to get better performance you can always try to increase the memory RAM for both boards up to 4GB of size.
On the following links you will be able to check the specifications for the boards:
Intel® Desktop Board DN2800MT:
Intel® Desktop Board D525MW:
If you are planning to use Linux on the board then in order to get further support for that OS please visit their forums where you will be able to get assistance from different peers that are using that same operating system at:
Please let me know if you need further assistance or if you have more questions on this matter.
Thank you for your response.
After I have installed the NeoKyline Linux at the DN2800MT desktop , which no other operational system turned out to support for being installed onto due to some specific hdd type used and some specific graphical issues which did come up to me within time of use of that product.
I did realize that it is a rather quick and comfortable OS to use, but it has Chinese interface.
However first thing which did come up to me after installation is a reference to LVDS used which I do not currently have.
That caused me wondering which LVDS device would be good to use with DN2800MT.
Could you advise some particular models to be considered for use with the board, please?
In regard to your inquiry, there is not a list of some particular models of LVDS that you can use with the DN2800MT that we can guarantee they will work for sure, let me apologize for that.
But, on the following link, which is the TPS (Technical Product Specification) for the motherboard, you will find useful information for the specifications of the LVDS connector, based on that information you might be able to find a device that it will work with the board, please check pages: III, 22, 24, 25, 26, 48, 55 and 73:
Any other questions, or if you need further information about this matter, please let me know.
Thank you for your response,
It turned out that DN2800MT Bios has a list of particular models mentioned :
Mitac Maestro 21.5'
Jumper Sail 21.5
Does that mean that DN2800MT has been tested with the above models?
According to the documentation the board seems to contain PCI Express 2.0  1.0a port which can be used for Graphical card add.
Is it likely to provide better performance of video HD if used? Whether I should google for PCI Express 2.0 or 1.0a cards or both?
1. Page 18
2. Page 48
In regard to your inquiry, you should look for a video card PCI Express 1.0a with form factor x1, but I need to let you know that since the board was released back in 2010 even if you find a video card with those specifications it might not be compatible with the microcode of the BIOS that came with the board.
So, in that case what we recommend is to do a BIOS update to the latest version to check if we can make it work that way, but sometimes is just not compatible.
There is no list of video cards that are compatible with the board, let me apologize for that.
Any questions, please let me know.
