I looked into it when Haswell first came out, only to find that no motherboard manufacturer offered any drivers whatsoever for Windows XP, much less Windows 2000 (aside from Intel's own chipset device software).

Check if BlackWingCat has made some port. W2k runs on ich10r thanks to him.

BWC... Thank you I've been thinking of buying NUC for a long time but was afraid of 2000 compatibility. This is good information.

Intel's latest Chipset Device Software (2/25/2014) just went up, and it looks like they've dropped support not only for Windows 2000, but Windows XP as well.

There is the unofficial Graphics Drivers 6.14.10.5441 (aka 14.56.0.5441), which support XP, and Haswell and IvyBridge, floating around the net.

Attached is an inf for it, with the erroneous (but cosmetic) "Intel® HD Graphics 3000" corrected to "Intel® HD Graphics 4000", as it should be.

The 5441 driver seems to be the last one that supports XP.

None of the later drivers have even a leaked or unofficial version for XP, AFAIK.

Am I wrong?

I think you are wrong.

And 5441 is previous official driver, but the link closed now.(Cause of it is old)

Plz see #5 link lastest comment.

You can download XP lastest driver (7th Mar 2014) from link.

Please note that said post now points to another (last page) post indicating the same as BWC. Intel doesn't have their *ahem* together at all. :(

Graphics is OK, but I want to know if the OS works on the platform.
