This is going to be fairly useless info...

I know there are utilities out there that identify your motherboard by decrypting the serial number...I wouldn't even know where to begin to look though. However, if you could find one, that certainly would be easier than tearing it all apart again.

My idea was see if it offerred any advantage being installed on an older system. But, as I don't have the time to dedicate to the install, it's drug out for a while now. As I said before, fortunately, it's not a computer I have to have running.

I've been looking around for quite a while now to see ...

I am doing this on an old box...(In...
