    Also if anyone has a favorite browser I would like to know about that also. I haven't found one I like yet.

    I also have an HP DL385P with dual 16 core opterons and 128gb of ram. I just added an m.2 adapter and a 128gb ssd. Before I put the server os back on I want to try and get xp64 up and running on it just for fun. 20211116_014734.jpg

    I didn't get a chance to try xp on the server yet. I was setting up mining rigs and doing some repairs for customers most of the weekend.

    The i7-970 was launched in 2010. IMO anyone looking to build an XP beast should get the last CPU gen that fully supported Windows XP. That is the 3rd gen Core iX-3xxx series. Have a search on eBay for the system board LGA 1155 that supports this CPU architecture. Can find a few that are brand new but no retail packaging. It's amazing can still get such new mobos years after XP went off extended support!
