    That is should work on both IDE comparable and Xchi like current Asus. I have it running on my MOCF and Asus boards.

    What kind of difference does xp vs 10 have? Because Chew showed Zen doing around 8m 36s @ 4016mhz

    Finally decided I should get my act together and try to figure out SPi

    I thought I'd have another go at making this work, the instructions in the videos on the links zeropluszero posted awhile ago just don't compute in my head.

    I've just been watching the first video again, it still makes no sense, but I noticed something I thought a little weird. The guy is running a 6700K with DDR3. Since I'm aware of only a handful of low end 100 Skylake boards that support DDR3, I'm assuming you don't even need a decent chipset for this?

    Even his ram looks like it's only 1866, and his timings are nothing special.

    What's the big factor, apart from the stripped OS?

    I figured it's easier to do it step by step :lol:

    Using my Kaby rig:

    *Downloaded Barbonets version of XP.

    *Hooked up a formatted 120GB SSD via a USB adapter. It's just the interface board/sockets between SATA and USB from a cannibalised external 2.5" drive.

    *Used Acronis to restore Barnonets XP to the SSD, as per his instructions.

    *Rebooted, F8 to boot to the SSD, booted into the XP splash screen immediately, then went into a hardware blue screen just as fast.

    *Rinse and repeat.

    *Thought OK, its XP, maybe USB 3.0 is a bit of a hard ask. The adapter is plugged into my USB 3.0 hub, which is plugged into a USB 3.0 port on my PC.

    Plugged the adapter directly into USB 2.0 on the PC instead.

    *Same result. Booted into the XP splash screen, then blue screened immediately.

    Bored with this. Tomorrow I'll hook it up to the mobo via SATA instead. Obvious first port of call, remove the need for USB drivers. XP has SATA drivers, I'm hoping they work.

    Any further suggestions beyond that? I know it was suggested I set it up with Haswell but I haven't actually done anything to it yet. It should at least boot?

    Try setting the sata mode to IDE in the BIOS. You may also find that USB has been disabled in that OS.
