No ACPI support for Xp so far, which is a shame as the board has better compatibility with short trace PCB memory sticks than the likes of Asus Apex boards (any of them).  Also no RTL/IOL options when KBL-X is installed.

Here's EVGA answer - Windows XP only has limited Support for Benchmarking purposes. It will not support XP as a fully functional OS. It only has drivers, built into the board for the ASMedia SATA controller. There are no other specific drivers available for XP, as a majority of the board functions will not work with XP. To run Windows XP, you will need to put the board into Legacy mode...hmmO.o

Not sure what they mean by "legacy mode" aside from a boot option (versus UEFI boot).  No one is expecting full XP support but they could at least add ACPI support since using XP for benching is practically useless without it.
