Amilo PA 2548 XP problem-detailed info

Postby gvdgvdgvd » Tue Jun 10, 2008 3:08 pm

PLease if someone has instaled successfully Win XP Pro on Amilo PA 2548 tell my what to do
What drivers I need for LAN, WLAN, WEBCAM, CARD READER, VIDEO CARD and CPU


I read that i need special SATA driver to "put" in to my XP cs
using Win XP iso builder???
I read that someone succeeded only with one type, but there is another thread called
Amillo 2548 all drivers
....
PLEASE TELL ME THE DRIVER THAT IS WORKING.

and how to burn the ISO so it will be bootable- I COULDN'T FIND THE HOMEPAGE WITH THE INSTRUCTIONS

Now the laptop has Vista
DO I have to remove the Vista (format)
before installing XP??

I used a Wortman XP professional with build service pack 2 (it is said to be recovery CD but when I booted it to the brand new laptop without VIsta it asked me to repair or to install...then of course it said that the hard drive cant be found...I tried with windows 2000-dont work, too. If i get WINDOWS XP PROFESIONAL (no recovery, no service packs) and build in the SATA driver will it work?? to
insert the SATA driver with WIN XP builder, than I didn't created ISO and did the integration....
than I took the files (integrated - with driver in them)
and burned them to a normal CD using Nero
(I didn't made the disk Multisession -so files can't be added later)
Than I boot the CD in the laptop (it still has intalled VIsta)

and nothing happened- it turns on with Vista


IF I HAVE TO FORMAT THE LAPTOP TO DELETE VISTA HOW CAN I DO IT???

I CANT FORMAT IT FROM COMPUTER?
PLEASE HELP!!

THANK YOU :}}}

(I tried to write exactly what happened so you will be able to help me! Sorry for the long post!)

1.download Nlite program from net.this program can add sata driver for harddisk.use your windows xp installation disk and add this driver.Nlite is easy to use i have done it in one try.

after u added driver u have to burn newly made installation to a cd or dvd.

restart and install windows

2.Drivers
web cam...use vista driver its working ok
modem is connexant i used from amilo 2510
download nforce 16.08 driver for chipset it contains lan driver
video driver..use google to find 8400m g driver.this driver is made only for 8400 and 8600m graphic cards.u cant find it on Nvidia.com

Hi there!
Yesterday I made ISO with WIn future XP iso builder
I think that I used the same driver as yours..
Anyway the big problem is how to make bootable ISO
I didn't managed with nero 6.6
because a check box " Platform identifier " was missing on my version
I read instructions from here
http://www.tacktech.com/display.cfm?ttid=297
Anyway, have you found drivers for ambient light sensor and for brightness control??

Please tell me what software you used to make your ISO bootable
PS :inserted the VIsta DVD and booted, then a special window showed and i choose comand prompt and format C ; but the hard drive is not 320 but 305 ar something like that.. not a big problem...
THANK YOU!

garrhhhh--- i hate fujitsu. damn it:)))

ihave tryed all the possibel ways of getting this too work and no matter what i do my labtop bluscreens when the image with integreted drivers start installing windows xp.
it can copy the files but when starting the installation it blue screens- it dosent say its the sata driver thats missing- just blue screen.

here's what i tryed until now

bios- set to default
used all the difrent sata drivers i could find in these threads
integreated sata drivers with both nlite and iso builder.
windows with sp2 & sp3
burned with nero 7 an imageburn.

so my question is - is it my bios?- do i need to format before i run the images,

let me know if you have an idea , i missed

greets
klaus
