This review is from: ASUS M2N AM2 NVIDIA nForce 430 MCP ATX AMD Motherboard
Easy install, good form factor, well laid-out motherboard. I like the ability to flash the BIOS from within Windows - much better than the old way of doing it.
The included ASUS utilities look a bit cheesy, like they were designed in the 80's. Other than that, nothing else so far.
One of the other reviewers noted that the driver install didn't do the network adapter. The current disk now does, BUT is doesn't do the onboard sound properly now. You need to run a windows patch before it will recognise the onboard sound properly. On the driver disk go to the drivers/audio folder and in the 32bit/2K_XP folder run kb888111.exe
Once you've done that, the sound will install correctly.
