What is your problem you can install easy GTX 1060 drivers on XP  I change 2 lines in the drivers and i have a full working system.

We need some proof more than just a line of text. At best 2D acceleration would work if you're very lucky, because 3D acceleration won't work at all.

Also make sure that the GTX 1060 is actually a real GTX 1060, not just a chinese ripoff, so make sure you provide the screenshot of the output of GPU-Z.

No 3D Is not Working but everything else works FINE.
All i did it was to chanhe 2 Lines in the inf text file of the driver Icafe. And Everything Installed Fine.

My Hardware
Gigabyte Z270 K3 gaming ( chipset 300) 
GPU Nvidia 1060 6G
CPU   Intel i7700K

Ahh, so that is to be expected. A friend of mine modded the latest drivers for the exact same card for XP installed on an asrock z170 pro4s mobo - same thing happened.

Its very easy to do it.
Open file nvic.inf from The drivers ( icafe 380.91 i used ) 
Add the follow line  in [Strings] section

                                 NVIDIA_DEV.1402 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950"

->>>>>>>>>>>  NVIDIA_DEV.10DE = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060"

                                 NVIDIA_DEV.1407 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750"

 

Then in [NVIDIA_Devices.NTx86.5.1] Add the follow line
--->>>>>>>>>  %NVIDIA_DEV.10DE%           = Section001, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1C03

INSTALL as normal

Enjoy GTX 1060 or what other card you have by doing the same thing and you done.

Everything is working fine with 2 monitors

I and my friend know how to do it, it's just that GTX 10xx cards are hit-or-miss on XP, and that i was worrying about.

I thought it wasn't possible at all?

whether is possible, depends on which card (a few of 'em), whereas the only thing you can get working is only 2d acceleration.

I am pretty sure due to personal experience that the success rate is 100% with the whole pascal lineup, although as you mentioned, only 2d acceleration is possible.

Small clarification (on the NVidia iCafe Drivers 368.81 and 368.91 for XP)

The XP-64bit driver may (or may not) support some 10x0, but they are not listed in the files. @Burd claims success with inf-modding.

The XP-32bit definitely does NOT. Inf-modding was tried by several users, to no avail. Thanks to @Dibya for pointing out...

I absolutely agree.  In most of my experiments the installation can be made to run, but after reboot the driver doesn't load.  Also, where I did get 10x to actually load they were either extremely unreliable or were easily out-performed by older fully compatible cards.  For my own system I went for a Palit GTX 750 ti which has proved to work very well and infact much better than some 10x cards I tested.

I had a look at this thread on guru3d again (Jaclaz find):

https://forums.guru3d.com/threads/nvidia-geforce-icafe-expresso-368-91-whql-desktop-driver.408957/

A user named maur0 sayeth this:

>> what driver is more good this or 368.95 hotfix?
>>17/07 368.91
>>20/07 368.95
>>3 days older

So there may be even a hotfix... But the only thing i located was from microsoft update (in a cab file) for W10 32bit... i guess something like that doesn't necessarily even exist for XP, so don't hold your breath...

Ah, btw, I pulled the XP 32bit iCafe-driver 368.91, as per the guru3d thread, both from nvidia china, and softpedia, and guess what, neither the 10x0 are in the inf, NOR are the GTX 970/980/etc. ! (the drivers are identical)

If you want to use the GTX 970 +, you have to inf-mod, eos.

The only decision you have to make is wether you take the .81 or the .91 as your base.

(i did NOT succeed 100% with the .91 driver yet, but that may be due to my limited skill-set, i get exceptions, and SLI is not working)

I just found this one:

uk.download.nvidia.com/Windows/344.11/344.11-desktop-winxp-32bit-international.exe

Supports GTX 970 and GTX 980. Works. No SLI detected by the driver, though (which is active on W10).

Somehow, NVidia is inconsistent with their support-politics...

 

Now, look at this:

sorry to post on a article that hasn't been posted on for more than half of a year. but XP64-bit is harder to get drivers for isnt it. i need functional drivers for a GTX1060. i tried inf modding but on startup windows XP Bluescreens because of nv4_mini.sys

Well, at least where nVidia's concerned, the whole XP family's in the same boat. It was actually here that I learned it was possible to inf mod 368.81 so that the XP family (including XP64) can use it for the GTX TITAN X (Maxwell) and so I specifically sought that card so I could take advantage on my XP64 rig.

I don't think anyone's made progress on getting any 10xx cards working with any of the XP family. It's looking like right now, if you can get a driver and a 10xx card to play nice with XP64, you're likely going to be seeing worse performance than you would with a 9xx card.

well. im speaking from XP now. using the integrated graphics. this machine has 4 OS's installed. and is my main PC. i modded the 368.81 driver. and on startup it bluescreened with the System file i mentioned listed as the cause(nv4_mini.sys)

does XP64-bit get a Extended kernel?
