Summary: 3rd DP35DP board for this computer I have a raid driven computer based on it. After 6 years, the first board failed, so I got a replacement from these folks Service was fast, and the box looked just fine. After about 1 year has gone buy and now the replacement has failed So I ordered another board from this seller. My first offsetting moment was seeing a second box seal next to the cut first seal.
Summary: This is the fifth computer I've built and the first and last with an Intel board. This is what I had to do to get XP installed. All of this was learned the hard way doing install after re-install after re-install. 1. Create a "slipstream" XP installation disk with Raid drivers so windows can find the hard disk and video drivers. 2. Install with no more than one gig of memory to avoid freeze during installation. 3. Disable LAN during installation to avoid freeze. 4.
Raid driver supplied on floppy for a board with NO floppy port

Summary: If you are building a system, don't get this board if you are planning to use XP (any flavor) or need/want a floppy drive on the system. Give me a break Intel! This board doesn't support such ancient technology as a floppy disk drive!! What I found really funny is that the board comes with the raid drivers supplied on a floppy. Intel made my system build a little more difficult. 12 USB ports is nice, guess I'll be using a lot a them!
Excerpt: [Algemeen] Het bord van Intel nu een maand in bezit. Bezit de veelbelovende P35 chipset. De verwachtingen hoog gespannen, misschien iets te hoog. De plaatsing van processor, geheugen, videokaart ging soepel. Ook het aansluiten van de hardeschijven was een peule schil. Hulde voor de indeling van het moederbord. [Input/Output] Zeer karig uitgevoerd I/O panel. Het bestaat uit een aantal USB aansluitingen, de standaard aan audiouitgangen en natuurlijk een lan jack.
