      Now I know what youre all thinking.... XP... whats that?


      This liitle NUC lablled in some spots as a TYKE and internally as a TYBE is doing my head in.


      It works perfectly well on Windows7


      But, I have a need to install XP, even though it does not support XP in its supported drivers.


      All goes well, even with the Windows XP hologram install disk in a USB caddy.

      It sees the SATA hard drive and formats and then copies files to it.

      It is installing onto a a 64GB SSD, but the same result happens on a Platter drive.

      The SATA mode tried in both AHCI and IDE mode... same result after a bios upgrade.

      At the point of normal reboot and startup to continue the rest of the install, it fails with the following BSOD.


      STOP: 0x0000007E (0x..........., 0x............., 0x..............., 0x..............)

      acpi.sys - address F73B8D66 base at F73AD000, DateStamp 41107d27


      XP drivers not available I can accept the following...

      I am not expecting the screen to work beyond VGA

      I dont need sound

      I can get around the Ethernet issue.

      USB3 to only work at usb2 speed or not at all is OK.


      But why cant I install XP.

      I even tried F5 and chose a standard HAL


      Anyone out there trying to achieve this?

      I am trying to replace an old PC with ISA slot, Yes even older than XP.

      I have found a ISA Bus slot to USB adapter, so the PC side can be very low spec, just XP 32bit.

      I thought this NUC would be perfect, but its not looking like this.

          Hi Cruickers,


          I am sorry you are having this trouble but let me help you.


          As you mentioned, the supported Operating Systems are Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1 only. This is a very new product and you may encounter problems during the installation of a non supported Operating System but you can also try another XP image.


          Something you can also try is installing one of the supported Operating System and then install a virtual machine running Windows XP.

          Here you can get more information about this:
