    You need a working key board and mouse to do any thing you may have to borrow a wired usb key board and try that.

    Your old box does not have as many usb ports as the new box does so XP does not have the driver for the extra ports and some will not be active so trying the other ports is not futile.

    Actually my old box has more usb ports. It has 8 usb 2 and the new has 4 usb2 and 2 usb3

    I hooked up the wired keyboard that came with the new system and it works. Now I have to get the drivers for the Intel 61 will that give me drivers for everything? video,bus,network controller?

    ok the guide says to download the drivers. Everything is in default mode vga video, no ethernet, nothing. What now? download the drivers on the XP system to a usb stick?

    Glad you have a working keyboard, now the work begins and I have no idea if the Intel 61 have all that you need. You will just have to go to support on the website and see if they have what you need XP drivers could be hard to find for your MB.

    Yes you will need to download the drivers to a USB stick as the XP system does not have WEB access, from another system that has WEB access.

    Actually my XP system is online. I have cloned the drive which is what I am using in the new system. I am on the XP now.
    I have the Joshua board driver pack. It says for XP 7+8 is that the same as the AHCI drivers?
