  1. Here are 2 Fully unlocked bios's for the Z490 Dark KINGPIN 1.07 - http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=66629967083638317470 1.09 - http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=64415733472824080928 (1.09 Has 2-3 submenus that will immediately crash the bios, I believe those are RC ACPI Settings, Connectivity Configuration, and HD Audio Configuration, 1.07 does not have this problem) Thanks to Lost_n_bios from the win-raid forums for providing these bios files.
  2. THE hard drive is a WD Black sn750 but it did not allow me to chose that as an option when submitting.
  3. Hey, I was recently able to get Windows XP working on my ASUS Maximus XI Gene with USB Drivers. I have included a Custom ISO that I created with NLITE where everything is integrated and nothing is stripped. You need to First Open up YUMI.exe which is in the Pack linked below, Select your install disk (USB), Then in Step 2 Select "Single Windows XP Installer" Format it as Fat32, And select the XPFinal.iso The process to get the usb drivers to work is a bit tedious but at the end of the day they work. First, You need to make sure you are booting as Legacy (MBR) and not as UEFI (GPT), Just go into your CSM settings on your motherboard and change it to UEFI and Legacy. (Also I would recommend disabling secure boot while you are at it) Next, to initialize the usb drivers in the setup, you will need to plug in a PS/2 - Keyboard adapter or just a standard ps/2 keyboard or mouse. Boot into the USB (Legacy) Click Installers, and then click XPFinal Step 1 Next Spam f7 until you see Setup is loading files, and just go through the setup. Now There have been times where you will get stuck on "Please insert the Service Pack 3 disk", To get past that box you have to Cancel out and close out of that box, Boot back into the usb, Click installers, But this time click Step 2. Go through the installer and when you finish you should be greeted with a Beautiful Windows XP background. (If everything went Correctly all you would need to do is sometimes replug the usb drives to get them running after a reboot.) (Quick Notice: If you notice your XP boot times are longer even in the setup, Do not worry that is completely normal. Sometimes the setup will freeze on "Installing Devices", all you have to do to fix that is reboot the PC boot back into the usb, 2nd option, and click step 2.) All credits go to Fernando From Win-Raid and FireKillerGR. (I would recommend following the guide that is in the pack already) (Also Quick Side note, To my knowledge There are no Intel i219-v Lan drivers for xp that are out at the moment) Here is the link to the mega Pack: https://mega.nz/file/IZEzwIjC#VUi07JC7uFF8nSkh2Wtb3zFjTUCw78zHTLDMIbkxzwY
  4. I would rather have an actual rule where you need to post a picture of your build, because this definitely isn't being enforced. For benchmate, making that a rule would pretty much end overclocking on older chips and trying to get that working on xp would be a nightmare. I feel as if enforcing the current "Mandatory Build photo" is the best option right now.
  5. isn't it a bit weird how this is his first submission on hwbot and its a wr? Also if you look closely on the cinebench part of the screenshot, the ranking part looks completely cropped out and photoshopped.
