I read with XP dummy plugs are not needed. But i guess its back to linux since XP and server is a POS and will only blue screen on install no matter what I do, F6 drivers, ide, etc. Anything wont work. Never in my life have I had this problem with XP and i've installed 100s of systems with XP that have SATA and various hardware. USB install maybe?
Since i'm back to Linux
got the miner program to work but it detects none of my GPUs
that command you gave does this
mike@GuiMiner1:~/poclbm$ sudo aticonfig -f --initial --adapter=all
Uninitialised file found, configuring.
PowerXpress error: Cannot stat '/usr/lib64/fglrx/switchlibGL': No such file or directory
Failed to initialize libglx for discrete GPU
Saving back-up to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.fglrx-1
mike@GuiMiner1:~/poclbm$ python poclbm.py
No device specified or device not found, use -d to specify one of the following
 AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 250 Processor
restarted and got this bastard error again
ImportError: libOpenCL.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
a link of that name exists in the same directory as libOpenCL.so, that fixed it now it is simply ignoring that file it seems....................................
This is the most frustrating annoying day i've ever had working on a computer.
