From Vista to XP - Amilo Li 2735

Postby giorgiob » Wed Jul 09, 2008 6:51 pm

Hello to everybody!
I've successfully installed Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2 (SP2) on this low-cost laptop: Amilo Li 2735.
Even if the procedure was quite simple and easy I will post all the links to the drivers to make life easier to anybody who wants to downgrade to XP.
SATA Driver:

VGA Driver:
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_ ... n&lang=eng

Wireless Driver:
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_ ... n&lang=eng

INF Update:
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_ ... n&lang=eng

Ethernet Driver:
http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/dow ... Down=false

Sound Card Driver:
http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/dow ... Down=false

Wireless Utility:
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_ ... n&lang=eng

Fujitsu Siemens Launch Manager for the Fn buttons (the same for Vista works on XP):
http://support.fujitsu-siemens.com/Down ... %20Utility

The Wireless Card must be activated every time Windows starts by pressing Fn+F1 but with this VisualBasic script (put in a startup directory) will be activated automatically (note that I DIDN'T wrote this script, I've found it in http://www.amilo-forum.de):
Code: Select all
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

Set oExec = WshShell.Exec("C:\Program Files\Launch Manager\WisWBSet.exe")

do while WshShell.AppActivate("Wireless Status Option")=False
WScript.Sleep 100
loop

WScript.Sleep 100

WshShell.sendkeys("{TAB}{TAB}{LEFT}~")


You may use nlite to custumize the XP installation disk. To install XP you MUST add at least the SATA driver or the installation process will not find any disk!!!
I installed SP3 after the installation of XP and everything is working fine.

I hope I was clear. Sorry for my english errors, I am Italian!!!

Write for any question!

Giorgio,
I am having trouble with the installation of the SATA drivers following the link you provided. Was there anything particular you had to do prior to loading the SATA drivers via F6. I am unable to get the F6 installation to work and am wondering if I am missing a trick. I would appreciate your help as I really need to get this sorted out fairly quickly. Is there a BIOS change that needs to be made?

You can contact at dennis.willoughby@ntlworld directly
Thank you
Dennis

Hello Dennis!
I created a new XP CD with the SATA drivers included using NLite http://www.nliteos.com/. It is a very simple yet powerful program which let you create personalised/custom WinXP CDs... There are many HOWTOs online that explain how to create such cds!
If you need further help please write me!

Bye!!

Giorgio,
Now fixed that problem, had to go in to the BIOS and disable AHD in the advance settings.
Only problem I now have is in Device Manager the Ethernet Controller shows the Yellow Triangle, and the sound card doesnt work. Any ideas?

Regards
Dennis

My last should have read by going in to the BIOS and disabling AHCI Configuration, it then recognised the Hard Drive

did you installed the Ethernet driver??? I don't remember but I think that the windows driver doesn't work... Try the one that I posted in the first post!
About the audio question, you must install a WinXP update: the kb888111 one that is included in the Realtek driver... Or you can install the SP3 which should have this update included... Try and tell me!

Bye!

Here is the solution for starting wireless on startup :

go START > run > notepad ENTER


write this in the notepad

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

Set oExec = WshShell.Exec("C:\Program Files\Launch Manager\WisWBSet.exe")

do while WshShell.AppActivate("Wireless Status Option")=False
WScript.Sleep 100
loop

WScript.Sleep 100

WshShell.sendkeys("{TAB}{TAB}{LEFT}~")

and save it as wifi.vbs

put the file wifi.vbs in the startup folder and this will do the job

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

Set oExec = WshShell.Exec("C:\Program Files\Launch Manager\WisWBSet.exe")


do while WshShell.AppActivate("Wireless Status Option")=False
WScript.Sleep 100
loop

WScript.Sleep 100

WshShell.sendkeys("{TAB}{TAB}{LEFT}~")

You need to edit the path to your Launch Manager Directory so it fit your language or where your Launch Manager is installed
otherwise windows can't find the file in startup

E.g ("C:\Program Files\Launch Manager\WisWBSet.exe")



I have made a registry entry, so it's startup earlier in:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
added a new stringvalue called "Wifi" with the full path to my wifi.vbs file
(E.g C:\Program\Launch Manager\wifi.vbs)

I have placed my wifi.vbs in the Launch Manager folder

Hope you got it

Hi,

Could you please update links in this post, since a lot of them are not working anymore or if you can name the correct components so I can browse the Intel's website for correct drivers?

Thanks.
