Thank you for choosing

Yes you can install the Windows XP on P4X266.

Here could be five various steps you can go about.

  • Method 1: Perform a clean install of Windows XP
    Use this method for a clean installation of Windows XP. A clean installation removes all data from your hard disk by repartitioning and reformatting your hard disk and reinstalling the operating system and programs to an empty (clean) hard disk.
  • Method 2: Upgrade to Windows XP
    Use this method if you are upgrading to Windows XP from Microsoft Windows 98, Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition, or Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional.
  • Method 3: Install Windows XP to a new hard disk
    Use this method to install Windows XP to a new hard disk. This is typically done when a new hard disk is installed on your computer.
  • Method 4: Install Windows XP to a new folder (parallel installation)
    Use this method to install Windows XP to a new folder (parallel installation) to either run two operating systems, or to access, repair, or retrieve data from a damaged disk.
  • Method 5: Perform a multiple boot operation
    Use this method to install Windows XP as a separate operating system on your computer. This lets you install more than one operating system on your computer and select which operating system that you want to use every time that you start your computer.

Hope this would help !!

I want run win98 to my pc and all drivers is xp or vista

sorry bro.. ECS didn't release any windows 98 drivers for that motherboard. try to use the windows XP drivers. See if it works. If it does work, you're in luck. if it doesn't well that probably means that its time to upgrade your operating system...

Upgrading of OS from Windows XP to Windows Vista

I looked up your motherboard and found some posts that suggest that the onboard VGA may be the problem you're having with Vista - using an another video card will probably allow you to install and operate Vista on your machine.

Wish to increase cpu spped and memory

Hi thefuncouple, here is the ASRock link for supported CPU's:
The Athlon XP 2600+ CPU is the highest CPU this board can support. (It will be hard to find one).
Main web site for the K7VM2:

Honestly, ASRock does not have drivers for Vista. Some of the drivers listed for XP may work with Vista. Your best chance is to download & run Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor 1.0
(Before installing Vista in to your system).
Vista, any version needs at least 1GB of memory. Two GB is recommended. After running Upgrade Advisor you will know if your ASRock motherboard can handle Vista. You should be able to upgrade to Vista (Over-writing XP) but only if your system passes the Upgrade Advisor.
Your best bet would be to buy a new system with Vista on it. Your ASRock board is just too old for Vista. You'll save money upgrading to a more supportive PC.

Good luck thefuncouple!
Vista is not for everyone, many users end up going back to XP.
Thank you for using fixya.

Hi ZJIM, download & run windows vista adviser fro microsoft.
This program will check your system & even your printer if its connected & turned on. After its runs the testing it will advise you what will & will not run with vista. It will also show you where to get updates for your system so you can run vista.

Good Luck!
