    Thanks for sharing my video, I tried to make the guide as simple as possible and it also works for Server 2003 as Server 2K3 is pretty much the same as XP.

    Is tiny XP different?can I use version 8? no drivers one?
    It had usbd file but I had to use my pcie card because the ps/2 port didnt work on any OS
    I managed to install drivers with the pcie card but if I try to use mobo ports the mouse n keyboard are unresponsive
     
    If I have to continue using the pcie card will it make any difference in scores? or anything

    I apologize if I am asking an inappropriate question, but I have the Z390 DARK's older brother, the X299 DARK. I could never find the drivers for it that supported Windows XP even though it officially claimed to support it unlike the Z390 DARK's product page. How can I get my hands on them? If anyone knows the answer to this, it must be k|ngp|n because these boards exist in no small part for him. I just want to be able to put WinXP on there for fun. If anyone knows the answer, please help. Thanks.

    To use the Y splinter (mouse and keyboard) in the ps/2 port:
    Run - Regedit - Hkey_Local_Machine - System - CurentControlSet - Services - i8042prt - Start (change the value of start from 3 to 1)

    Oha,
    I just noticed, that the timer in the original XP Bios from EVGA for the z390 dark motherboard not works.
    And also compi stays always in C0 state, brrr.
    And the most crazy thing: This happens also in Win10, power consumption on 9900k always about 27 Watt..

    Now I chance all against my modified

    acpi.sys
    hal.dll
    intelppm.sys

    and all is nice:
    Full ACPI support with Hyperthreading, Timer works, powerconsumption on 9900k about 2 Watt:)).

    This simple means,
    we, Mov AX, 0xDEAD and me Dietmar
    are better
    Dietmar
     
    PS: XP SP3 on 9900k at 5.100 GHZ
     
    EDIT: Splitter (mouse and keyboard) in the ps/2 port do not work. Only one of them can be used.
     EDIT2: With cooler dark rock pro 3 be quiet I get 5200MHZ on XP.
    But with prime95 temperatures on 3 cores reach after 20 min 100 degree at 220 Watt.
    So, I go back to 5100 MHZ and have now 78 degree max on all cores at 150 Watt during Prime95.
    The problem with power consumption in Win10 is gone. Compi throttels down to 600 MHZ at 0.2 Watt.

    If you want to provide step-step method how to update/mod files, I'll be happy to add it into guide for other XP enthusiasts. I'm doing long overdue overhaul for Z390 article now.

    The usbd.sys vers. 6.2.9200.16384
    does not work.
    For XP you have to use
    usbd.sys from XP SP1
    vers. 5.1.2600.0

    Hi,
    this morning I make the ultimative ACPI test for the EVGA dark z390 board.
    First, I make with REVELPROG IS Epromer an update of its whole Bios chip 25Q127CSIG.
    3 times I read XP friendly Bios vers. 092 out and compare. Ok, all copies are identic.
    Then I flash the brandnew BIOS 107 (September 2019), which is not XP friendly to this z390 board.
    Ok, first XP install gives A5 error and in a strange way also 7B.
    After testing and testing I succeed to install full ACPI XP on this board. I do not mod anything in Bios 107.
    Everything works: Lan, graphik, all USB.. under XP.
    The DSDT table of this Bios 107 is similar to the Bios of the Gene XI board
    or the Apex XI board or the z390 boards from Gigabyte.
    I have to add the registry entries for the STORAHCI driver by hand (see *.reg here in folder)
    Dietmar

    Z390 Dark and X299 Dark are serious improvement compare to previous EVGA motherboards.
    I like how they cut PCB and help with cable management to reach same holes as ATX motherboard in PC case.
    Looks like and PCB is thicker then on competitors boards. I always thought that some expensive motherboards should be thicker.
    Gold lines and marked screw holes improve look as well. Special if owner use some nice black allen key screws... 
    At the moment I use Lian Li black motherboard screws, you install them with fingers.

    did you integrate the drivers into the installation or did you install xp first and then make registry entries?
