    on many aftermarket boards this is true, were talking about an HP machine here, custom main boards that often don't have driver support, for vista never mind xp.

    we need the physical model number to really tell him it will work or not.

    You come onto a Windows 8 forum, declare that it "Sucks" and want relevant help? There's nice people on this forum that would be glad to help if you weren't being so rude.

    I would take a guess at your age but I'd say "High School" should cover it. I'm sure the board would accept an apology if you're willing to offer same. Otherwise, why not troll somewhere else?

    This is simply not true, particularly with laptops. Yes, the OS will work with the basic chipset an technically function, but most of your devices will not, such as network cards (particularly wireless ones), SD cards and/or USB ports (particularly USB3). Some video cards may not work either, so you would only get basic resolution and colors. That's unlikely though.

    I Agree.

    Yes that's exactly what I'm talking about: a HP laptop from 2010 doesn't support XP so let's be quiet about even newer models.

    I find that very hard to believe. In fact, it makes me think you don't actually understand what I'm talking about.

    the graphics driver is either a standalone chip from Nvidia or Amd or integrated ie using the onboard chip of the intel/amd cpu, now these are all dx11 capable which xp isn't which again leads us to the problem of driver support being lackluster but possible depending, but you will have one otherwise you wouldn't have a display to look at

    can you post the model of your laptop, it should be on the bottom or under the battery.

    older hardware had support for xp, new hardware will either offer it or not, but given xp support ends in 2014 (march? i think) less than 2 years away chances are new hardware won't support it.

    there will be differences even between windows 7 and xp, frankly i'm stunned xp is even used at all given how much better 7 is.

    google translate ftw...hope this is even readable for you.

    le pilote graphique est soit une puce autonome de Nvidia ou AMD ou intégré soit en utilisant la puce à bord du CPU Intel / AMD, maintenant ce sont tous capables dx11 xp qui n'est pas qui conduit de nouveau à nous le problème de l'aide à la conduite étant atone, mais possibles en fonction, mais vous aurez un sinon vous ne seriez pas d'écran à regarder

    pouvez-vous envoyer le modèle de votre ordinateur portable, il devrait être sur le fond ou sous la batterie.

    matériel plus ancien avait un soutien pour xp, le nouveau matériel sera soit l'offrir ou non, mais étant donné le soutien xp se termine en 2014 (mars? je crois) moins de 2 ans de suite les chances sont de nouveau matériel ne le supportent pas.

    il y aura des différences même entre Windows 7 et XP, franchement, je suis stupéfait xp est même utilisé du tout étant donné la façon dont beaucoup mieux 7 est.
