Nahh...didn't work on these Intel motherboards. I tried all three
modes available in BIOS. None of them worked. I went so far as to find
a program that allows you to build custom windows install CDs and
tried to get that going but ran out of patience. (In short supply
these days with my blood pressure at 165/110 and the doctors shoveling
pills in me like they were candy...but hey - at least I'm making some
money in the futures market and can dream about playing my guitar some
day in the future.)
