I'm looking for a new desktop computer, the Acer Aspire XC600 with following specifications:
Acer Aspire XC600 - SFF - 1 x Core i5 3330 / 3 GHz - RAM 4 GB - HDD 1 x 1 TB - DVD SuperMulti - Radeon HD 7470 - Gigabit LAN - Windows 8 64-bit
Now, I would like to install Windows XP on this machine but I need to know for sure wether it will function correctly or not. I can find Windows XP drivers for the GPU, so that isn't any problem. Hard drive and DVD drive don't pose any issues either. But I can't find anywhere what type of motherboard is in this computer so I can't check wether there are any XP drivers for it. Can someone tell me what motherboard/chipset this computer uses and wether there are any XP drivers available or not? Thanks.
(Disclaimer: Yes, I know Windows XP is almost a legacy operating system and I know this is very old, poses some serious security risks etc. etc. But I need to run XP for certain reasons.)
