XP x64 SABERTOOTH X99 Drivers!! (Re-uploaded)

Recommended Posts

These drivers are derived directly from my Windows XP Professional x64 Edition (Volume License) install on my ASUS SABERTOOTH X99 Workstation.

None of the drivers have been modified. They've been tested to work successfully on the ASUS SABERTOOTH X99 Motherboard.

The download link is below!

Please open the read me file for more information and what to expect; before proceeding with any driver installation.

Download Link: http://www.mediafire.com/?1noclu654luf9

(Make sure to have 7-Zip so you can open the archive.)

Enjoy!!

Sorry everyone for my absence, with MSFN losing my content and other information; as well as me going on "vacation" a few months ago, It's been difficult to stay in contact and also work on my projects since all my machines and tools were elsewhere... So, when I get back from traveling; which wont be long from now. I plan on finalizing my testing with my Ryzen motherboard; I got it specifically for XP x64, did tons of research before hand and will be doing more regarding personally testing it. This is something I am beyond passionate about; so I will do my best to make XP x64 work on Ryzen one way or another.

Also, regarding guides and such pertaining to Intel x99 Sabertooth, AMD Ryzen, & possibly Newer Intel Boards; I will see about creating either video guides or simple step by step ones with screenshots. Either way, I will show everyone EXACTLY how I did it to get Intel x99 Sabertooth to work with XP x64, following my possible success with AMD Ryzen; I will do the same and so forth. Any new information will be posted here only. So, in other words I'd suggest following this post because there may indeed be some MORE useful information in the near future. Thank you for the support; I look forward to sharing my finding VERY soon! :D

Take Care! :)

I have been away for quite some time, due to being ill but, my health is improving and I hope to be more active on here in the future. For now, I have written a simple Step By Step Guide for you. I claim absolutely no responsibility for incorrect use of my instructions resulting; in damage of any kind. It is up to you to be careful; there is always risks involved when installing or setting up anything. Please do be careful.

First before all else, make at least one backup image of your Windows XP Professional x64 Edition install; if you don't know how I would be happy to show you ways in which to do so. One way in particular is to use a program called MiniTool Partition Wizard Free, Or any other partition software that allows you to make bootable image backups of your Operating System. You will be needing an extra HDD or SSD handy to copy it over to but, you can use USB interface or SATA / E-SATA or whatever interface you believe will work to copy it over. SATA / E-SATA is typically faster and is the most compatible in most cases. You should do this on a previous computer you have around though. To do this using MiniTool Partition Wizard Free you launch the application then select your bootable Windows XP Professional x64 Edition disk from the list. After that you need to click on Migrate OS to SSD/HD Wizard; then you select option B "I would like to move my operating system to another hard disk. And keep the original hard disk in my computer." Although, if you have multiple partitions on your disk, then select option A otherwise go with option B. After that you simply select the destination SSD or HDD you want to copy your bootable system image to. The destination disk will obviously be overwritten so keep that in mind. Make sure to backup any files you may have on it before you start the system disk copy.

So, today I'm going to explain how I personally managed to get Windows XP Professional x64 Edition running on the ASUS SABERTOOTH x99 Motherboard with the on board SATA AHCI / RAID enabled. This Guide is intended to be rather simple and I do hope it is helpful to you.  To speculate, it should boot through regular IDE with the default IDE drivers within the Operating System, as long as you have IDE enabled; although in this case it is not totally relevant to AHCI / RAID because we need them to be enabled within the Operating System in order to install the drivers via a special method below. Although, It may be possible to have IDE enabled on one of the two storage controllers and have AHCI enabled on the other; with the boot device plugged into the IDE mode storage controller. Then you'd install the AHCI driver within the Operating System that booted through IDE mode; after that you switch your boot device to the AHCI controller and simply go into the BIOS / UEFI and change the IDE mode to AHCI. Although, I cannot say this with certainty but, it could theoretically work if done correctly. This is mainly in case you can't afford another SATA Card or desire an alternative method. I have not truly tested the IDE method. The only current way I've managed to get it to boot via AHCI / RAID is to use a previous install of Windows XP Professional x64 Edition. (It may ask you to activate Windows again though, so make sure you are prepared for that in advance). If you have a Volume License copy of Windows XP Professional x64 Edition then you need not worry about being prompted to activate at anytime. Now, in order to get the Intel AHCI / RAID drivers to work, you must first have an extra SATA controller; you can do this by using a third party PCI-E x1 SATA Card by Marvell or any other SATA cards compatible with Windows XP Professional x64 Edition. (I used Marvell SI-PEX40065). Now, the drivers for the Third Party SATA Card must be installed before you can boot from it. To do this, simply use your previous computer or any handy / compatible computer you got nearby. Make sure to install the Third Party SATA Card Drivers once you have booted into your previous / other computer. After that, shutdown and then put your boot device (HDD or SSD).  back into the computer case with the ASUS SABERTOOTH x99 Motherboard; then plug your boot device into the Third Party SATA Card. After that is done, turn the computer on and go ahead and enter your BIOS / UEFI using either the delete key or the F2 key. From there you'll navigate to  Advanced then to PCH Storage Configuration; next change SATA Controller 1 to AHCI or RAID depending on your needs, in this case I recommend using AHCI if you've never setup a RAID before or are unsure on which to use for simply booting your device. For beginners I recommend AHCI; and if in the future you want to build a RAID then do so wisely. (I have a RAID setup for my two SSD's in RAID-0, it was fairly painless to setup but, I employ you to always have one or even two backups of your original Operating System aka Windows XP Professional x64 Edition. Then scroll down more and also change SATA Controller 2 to AHCI. (The second Intel Storage Controller does not support RAID). This Guide and it's steps also can apply to Windows XP Professional 32-bit and other 32-bit versions of Windows XP. Although, make sure to use the correct 32-bit Drivers for your devices to avoid issues; and as always backups are essential. Now, once you've booted into the Operating System yu'll notice 'New Hardware' to be installed, what yu'll do next is simply use Device Manager to manually install the SATA Controller Drivers from the SATA Drivers I provided you; the ones in which correspond to AHCI for now. Then yu'll need to restart but, in this case shut down instead; so that you may unplug your boot device from the Third Party SATA Card and then plug it into the one of the two On board Intel SATA Controllers. Also, be sure that your boot device is set for first priority booting, otherwise the BIOS / UEFI may not boot it. Plus, yu'll need to make sure CSM is enabled and configured for legacy boot. I do hope this simple Guide was helpful in some way; and if not please do let me know what you need explained further. Also, I hope you all have a great day and rest of the year on; take care!

Good luck & Enjoy!!

Sincerely,

- XP-x64-Lover :wub:

Hello there everyone! :thumbup

A new driver for the 'ASMedia USB3.1 eXtensible Host Controller' has been released and is tested working. I must warn you this was usually an unstable driver; in the past I tried to install it but I'd get blue screens.

This is an accidental successful install of the latest system drivers for the 'ASMedia USB3.1 eXtensible Host Controller'; so proceed at your own risk and I am not responsible for issues that may happen. The download link is at the bottom of the screenshot. (The [rough draft] / basic installation instructions are in the READ ME.txt file. If you need help I'd be happy to see what I can do. I hope it works for you just as it has for me. Good Luck!

Sincerely,

XP-x64-Lover :wub:

ASMedia USB3.1 2018 [Experimental] Screenshot.JPG

Download Link: (Removed)

Important Update: 02-12-2019 "I'm not entirely sure if this accidental install method is causing this but, sometimes my USB devices when plugged into the ASMedia 3.0 / 3.1 controller do not detect unless I restart the computer with them plugged in before boot. Now, this was not an issue for awhile and I thought it was 'fixed' but, looks like it's back again for some reason? I've pretty much ruled out the front 3.0 USB cord itself since I literally have a brand new case; although, it is always possible the 3.0 cord is faulty somewhere. Either way, I've removed the download link and I don't advise anyone to use this or if they did, and notice issues make sure to load your backup OS image if you have any. I was so sure it was working and believe I rushed into it; I've even overwritten my backup with that incomplete USB 3.0 / 3.1 driver unfortunately... I do wish I had been more careful; I'll have to hunt down every system file or inf corresponding with that device and delete them than reload my known working 2017 ASMedia USB 3.0 / 3.1 drivers. If I have caused anyone any issues as well; I am VERY sorry and will most certainly make sure to be FAR more careful next time; for your sake and my own"... :}

Two things:
1)  Your screenshot shows 1.16.51.1, but the sys file you attached is 1.16.38.1, and you also omitted the INF
2)  Can you please provide the full device ID for your chip?

I've been using a 3.0 on XP with 1.16.32.1 for a while and it's been working well.  The Asmedia ROM is also very important.  Just be warned that if you start playing around with the motherboard BIOS in order to modify the ROM, you could brick your board.  In my case it's a discrete PCIe card.

For some reason they don't make 3.1 cards with internal headers.  PCIe x4 would also be nice for a 3.1 version.  Oh well.

My mistake, all this was accidental when "updating" the ASMeida USB 3.1 driver. I only think part of the files were updated. I'll do further investigation when I have the time.

Today, I've tested, installed, and am successfully using (8) new Windows XP x64 device drivers for the ASUS Sabertooth x99 motherboard.

All the drivers are stable and match exactly as shown; some if not all are unsigned but, I've derived them from a reliable source.

All EIGHT of the drivers are up to 2018 levels and work flawlessly for me. No blue screens, no slowdowns, no errors whatsoever. Now, that is my experience and I cannot grantee that something might not go wrong; although always backup your Operating System beforehand!

Device List: Intel(R) C610 series X99 chipset LPC Controller - 8D47, Intel(R) C610 series X99 chipset PCI Express Root Port #1 - 8D10, Intel(R) C610 series X99 chipset PCI Express Root Port #4 - 8D16, Intel(R) C610 series X99 chipset PCI Express Root Port #5 - 8D18, Intel(R) C610 series X99 chipset SMBus Controller - 8D22, Intel(R) C610 series X99 chipset SPSR - 8D7C, Intel(R) C610 series X99 chipset USB Enhanced Host Controller #1 - 8D26, Intel(R) C610 series X99 chipset USB Enhanced Host Controller #2 - 8D2D. (These are all the devices that work with these drivers; be careful to match them correctly).

To respond more accurately, the device ID is PCI\VEN_1B21&DEV_1242&SUBSYS_86751043&REV_00\4&68E7395&0&00E4

Also to clarify, I have not done any BIOS modifications; nor do I need or desire too lol. (At least for this board in particular.)

I had been meaning to respond to this topic for a week, but I'd been so preoccupied with work and other commitments that I hadn't had the chance to ... until now!

I wanted to leave a huge thank-you, @XP-x64-Lover, for all you've done in finding these drivers and allowing those of us sticking with XP64 a chance to upgrade to hardware a bit more recent. Between your drivers and the trick explained by Matt's Repository for getting XP/XP64 drivers for the nVidia 9XX series, on Memorial Day Weekend I was able to finally give my desktop the badly needed overhaul I'd been wanting to do since my first posts at MSFN back in 2014!

unknown.png

Palousers_Memorial_Day_Upgrade_2019_001.

That's 64 GB of DDR4 RAM, SABERTOOTH X99 motherboard, Intel i7-6950X CPU, and a GeForce GTX TITAN X. I wasn't able to get the SSD thing sorted out, so I wound up using the IDE method, which has worked amazingly well with my existing install. Since @bluebolt figured out a way to get an install of XP64 working on a NVMe 2.0 drive, I may skip the SSD and attempt a fresh install off of that instead, since the X99 has a bay for NVMe drives. For now, though, I'm just excited to have not only put my hardware troubles behind me for now, but that I've now got the RAM upgrade I've wanted for years!
