I have a Dual Xeon machine with a fresh install of Windows XP Pro SP3.

The DVD-RW works perfectly fine in Linux (Ubuntu) and Windows 2003 but when I install Windows XP (Tiny XP Rev9) it won't show up at all regardless of what I do and the drive won't even open if I hit the eject button; it's as if the Drive is disabled. I can't see it in the Device Manager and it doesnt work regardless if I have the Intel Chipset driver install or if I am using the Microsoft Driver.

Any ideas?

*** EDIT ***

I have the latest BIOS update, tried the latest drivers from Asus's website and Intel's website and I even popped in a old Sony CD-RW from another machine and got the same thing.

Now I have used this version of Tiny XP Rev 9 on other machines and have had no such problems. (6 machines so far mine being the 7th)

Hi :thumbsup:.

From what I see Tiny XP is an illegal version of XP, support of such is against forum rules.
