SLI can be enabled using one of the SLI hacks - for example https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/sli-with-different-cards.158907/

The problem is when the chipset or CPU (as the PCI-E controller is built in there) is newer than GPU drivers... in that case SLI isn't suported (I think). The mentioned hack probably fools the driver to think it runs on X58 or something similar... and therefore SLI will work, even in XP. http://hwbot.org/submission/3502846_havli_3dmark06_2x_geforce_8800_gtx_27622_marks

I got it working in Windows 7 but on XP the .sys file I'm supposed to copy into the patch folder doesn't exist - any hints?

Sounds like the same issue I was having.

The patcher that is linked seems to only work for 64bit OSs? How do you get it working in XP32 (as nvlddmkm.sys isn't present)?
