Hello, how are you?
Regarding: XP x64 SABERTOOTH X99 Drivers!! (Re-uploaded) & The "Experimental" ASMedia 3.1 / 3.0 Driver install method.
Possible issue with the experiential ASMediaUSB 3.1 system driver files!
Read more on my main post.
Server 2K8 x64 - ASRock AB350 Pro4 (Media Center / Gaming): White Fang
OS: Windows Server 2008 Enterprise x64, CPU: AMD Ryzen 3 1200 Quad-Core @3.1GHz, MB: ASRock AB350 Pro4, SSD: Intel SSD 535 Series 120GB, GPU: AMD Sappire R7 260X 2GB GDDR5, RAM: 1x 4GB Patriot DDR4 2133MHz, PSU: Seasonic 520 Watt 80+ Bronze, Case: Rosewill Wolf Alloy.
Windows Server 2k8 x64 is running stable on Ryzen thus far; with third party pci-e devices for storage, usb & of course video. Drivers for sata is the default ahci drivers that come with windows; it's been working stable so far. Also, I have many devices and such disabled in BIOS; for instance SMT is disabled just in case. I'm currently logging everything i do or change to better understand the cause of a system failure if it arises. I'll update you all on further progress later on. "lol I'm currently using this system as I write this".
PS: The reason I'm using Server 2008 Enterprise x64 is because windows vista enterprise x64 gave me blue screens before I could even log in; it was very random and would give me blue screens often and than sometimes not for a little awhile. I'm not 100% sure as to why Server 2008 is more stable on Ryzen since both Vista and Server 2008 are almost identical; for now all I can do is speculate.
@greenhillmaniac Got Vista working just fine on his Ryzen system, since Windows 7 drivers work just fine on Vista in most cases (albeit requiring .INF mods most of the time).

I see thank you, well for some reason the ASRock AB350 Pro4 doesn't work well with regular Vista itself but, it plays nicely with a fully updated & prepped Windows Server 2008 x64 for the most part. The only drivers I can't use with "stability" are the ASMedia SATA / AMD SATA and possibly the drivers mentioned by greenhillmaniac. I am however using the onboard AMD USB 2.0, 3.0 & 3.1 with little issue; the only issue I see is a USB ID issue the system complains about sometimes. (I've learned to appreciate Vista/2k8 and I find them or it to be a fairly rock solid OS.) I still prefer XP x64 and wish I had succeeded in getting it to work on that motherboard but, I'm just glad I made some big progress thus far; I was beginning to get discouraged that no OS other then 7 would run well. (I am very disappointed in most Manufacturers today; We users deserve a choice of our preferred OS.) Not to be forced or have Win10 shoved down our throats constantly. Whatever happened to freedom of choice; There was a time when the market was more open and allowed for more diverse users; and actually listened to the customer / user and their requests and suggestions. I think most of it comes from a place of greed and laziness / lack of imagination, vision and openness. Anyways, end of "rant"...
I have had no success with XP x32 / XP x64 on Ryzen; I got Vista x64 Installed though but, with random BSODs. I won't give up so soon; I still believe I can get one of them to work.
Eight new XP x64 Device drivers are available for the Sabertooth x99 Motherboard.
You'll find more information and the download link on my post called "XP x64 SABERTOOTH X99 Drivers!! (Re-uploaded)".
For those of you that do not know or that want to know. I am a girl not a guy lol.
PS: I wonder how many females we got around here?
