CPU Intel Core2Duo E6300; M.Board Foxconn P9657AA; OS XP-SP2
I installed the X-Micro driver (from web) for the XWL-11GCAG to a clean XP-SP2 installation, and turned PC off, inserted PCI card and rebooted.
XP seizes up during boot and hangs. If I turn PC off and remove card, XP boots correctly.
I previously had an AMD Sempron 2800 system which worked very well with the same XWL-11GCAG card.
Does anyone know if the XWL-11GCAG and driver is compatible with the E6300 Core2Duo?
Many thanks in advance

Re: XP-SP2 hangs on boot after installation
I think maybe better uninstalling driver, but leave card in and boot system and let windows find the card(hardware) first instead of wot sounds like windows looking for driver and freezing in the boot up process as it will look for a connection to internet for an update or driver.
Normally any usb periferals should be connected after driver installation, but any pci or agp cards inserted first, then driver.

The Foxconn P9657AA-8EKRS2H motherboard has a LGA 775 Socket. It will support Intel Core 2 Quad, Core 2 Extreme, and Core 2 Duo processors with an FSB of 1066 (800MHz). Thus is should support the dual core 775 processors. (Some Pentium 4, Pentium D and Celeron D CPUs may also be compatible with the board.)
Foxconn don't have this board on their list of their Windows 7 supported chipsets (which is hardly surprising), but as you state all your individual components should be perfectly OK with Windows 7 .
I suggest you flash the Bios because Foxconn had to produce a new Bios for Vista in order for that OS to run correctly.
Try removing your AGP card and enabling the onboard graphics again. It is possible your Radeon is a 3.3v, but this board only supports 1.5v cards. Take a look at the manual at ftp://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/D845GERG2/BV2RG2_English.pdf
If your PC boots up successfully and load windows then its mean that RAM is working fine... There is some problem with OS settings.. So at XP booting press F8 for start-up menu and select Last known good configuration... Hope it will work...
