    Intel gave XP users the middle finger a few years ago when they launched LGA 1150 and didn't bother to write any XP drivers for any of the chipsets associated with that socket. AMD was slightly friendlier to XP users, offering driver support all the way up through their socket AM3+, but now they've launched AM4 and it doesn't support anything earlier than Win7.

    Older motherboards with native XP support are getting harder and harder to find. Soon, they will be impossible to find. People who want to continue using XP have only one option: refitting Windows 7/8/10 drivers to work with XP x64 and Server 2003. Has anyone been working on this?

    I'm pretty sure that's not possible, however, one can make custom drivers.
    The closest best you can do without official support is a sound adapter, wifi adapter, and there is a universal display driver for unsupported displays, however, you cannot change the brightness with it.
    If you're interested in the driver, check here:http://navozhdeniye.narod.ru/vbemp.htm
