I did enable the bios section that allowed choosing the output, kept it set at 'auto' and WinXP refused to boot. Dos and Fedora Core 4 64bit worked fine. I assume it was a vid driver issue in XP, probably just needed to set to VGA, flash, reboot and then let windows find drivers. I did not go that far, was not worth it to me because the HP ATI VGA bios wound not run vista-aeroglass so I went and loaded up the MSI VGA bios into the HP. If you load up the MSI it does have added output support versus the HP VGA, exactly what I forget but check out the msi-7093 mobo (RS480M2), has:
- 1 x VGA Prot
- 1 x S-Video port
- 1 x Composite TV-Out

So if the connectors and any intermediate HW for the physical display is in place on the mobo, it may be good to go.
