XP on amilo pi 2512?

Postby eventversion » Sat Mar 29, 2008 4:15 pm

I recently got an Amilo Pi 2512 laptop - nice computer however I'm not the biggest fan of Vista and the Sims 2 lags and freezes on it, I've read on the internet that they're not the two most compatible of things.

When I boot from an XP disc however it says there are no partitions free? I've tried using the WinFuture iso thing however when I try to start it up it brings up an error message. nLite works however I'm not sure what driver I need for this laptop and how to add it in using nLite.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

What error message do you get from XP Iso Builder?

Which Sata-driver did you use? You will need the Intel Matrix Storage Manager.

You'll never believe this but xp-iso-builder has opened just this second when I went to copy out the error message lol

I'll try following the guide and give it a go now thanks

I had Storage Manager but it was an exe I wasnt sure if that was the driver files I need for this or just an installer if you get me?

You have to extract the drivers from the Storage Manager.
To do this, run the exe from the commandline with the options -A and -P[Path].

e.g.:
Code: Select all
iata62_cd.exe -A -PC:\intel\
