i would use an old system any lga 775 system should work and do the os install on itPOSReady 2009 sounds good! and I am not affraif of the drivers, but my main issue is how to do the installation.
I believe that if start the explorer, plug a ps2 keyboard and ps2 mouse, and launch the installaiton it is not going to boot, right?
Windows 7 undoubtly is an optioon, its an off the shelf motherboard chipset, its the jvs and com that you would likely not the find drivers that work .It seems dnphamus13 has experience installing fresh OS in TX2. Too bad W7 is not an option
