    ST20G5 and Windows x64

    So far none of the review's I've found for this kit make any mention to running Windows XP x64 on it. Is anybody here running it? I've checked for driver support and it all seems to be there.

    Thanks for the update Shad.

    Running versions of XP64 on my ST20G5, SN85G4 and Sn95G5 V2 . Seems to work well so far but it was a bit of fun sorting drivers.

    XP64 does seem a little more sporty in a software development environment but I think the combination of dual core and XP64 is going to lead to a very, very nice box for Windows staftware development .

    I was quite surprised at the lack of driver issues I had. The Shuttle had the SATA drivers for x64 on the floppy disk, so that was easy. The system got up and running ok so I just burned the chipset/network/audio/video drivers to a CD and set about installing them.

    I do seem to have lost my ATI tabs in display properties though. But it's a work PC so I'm not too fussed about that!

    As ever, 100% impressed with a Shuttle
