Installing XP PRO on AMILO Pi2550: Problem with LAN

Postby GODOFREDOXXX » Fri Aug 01, 2008 1:19 am

Hi!

Sorry for my English, but I'm spanish.

I bought amilo pi 2550 with win vista and I downgrade to win xp ( after lot of work ) everything works except LAN and Flash Memory...

Before install Xp, I used systemscan with VISTA, and the results said:
On board:
ATI Mobility Radeon HD2400 (with XP goes well...)
Realtek High Definition Audio (also goes well...)
Realtek RTL8101 Family PCI-E Fast Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.0)
After install XP, ATI and Audio goes well, but Ethernet has dissapeared...

Networkdevices:
Realtek RTL8101 Family PCI-E Fast Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.0)
Intel (r) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection
After install XP, Intel (Wlan) goes well, but Ethernet has dissapeared...

I´ve used the driver from realtek:
http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/dow ... Down=false

After I install this driver, appears a mensagge that says "Please shoutdown an plug Realtek PCI card to complete the instalation"...

But finally, the Lan don´t works, so I cant use Internet...

Please, somebody can help me...

Thanks

Please try the "Auto installation program" (1st entry in the list):
http://www.realtek.com.tw/Downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=14&PFid=7&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false#1
It worked for other Amilos with the same LAN adapter.

¡Mucha suerte!

Hi Hikaru:

I was using a driver for PCI, but I was wrong. I needed a driver for PCI-Express.
Finally, everything goes well.
Thanks.

If anyone needs help for install XP in Amilo 2550.... I'll try to help him.

Bye,....

Hi!
This is a message for GODOFREDOXXX (or anyone who can help me).
I bought an AMILO pi 2550 last summer (of course, with Vista Home POremim pre-installed) and I need to downgrade to XP Pro, but I can not, and I´m getting crazy!

I´m not used speaking with this technical computing-language, so I would need someone who can explain me what I need, where can I get it, how to install, in which order... in a basic language.

Thanks a lot!

PD: GODOFREDOXXX, si ves este mensaje, me puedes escribir en castellano, yo tampoco controlo mucho en inglés...

Have you already installed XP and are you searching for drivers now or do you have problems to install XP at all?

btw:
Please try to write in english if possible. This is the official language of this forum and would be more useful for other users.
Up to now your english isn't worse than mine. :-)
