We just got official word from Abit's UK offices that current KT7A rev 1.3 and KG7 motherboard will work with the XP processors but need a BIOS update.

Also if the system is upgrading from T'Bird Athlon to XP Athlon, you are requested to re-install Windows. Otherwise, the SSE function will not work.
