Note that brightness control is not present in the standard via chrome graphics driver on xp.
the screen goes on low brightness when on battery, and high when on mains, and I can't find any way to make it bright on battery.
if anyone got tips, pls share.
here are the drivers
here's how I installed Microsoft Windows XP with SP2 on the Amilo Li 1705:
0 on slowass vista, download XP drivers to d:\drivers\
1 install xp like normal
1.1 disable automatic updates for now, completely.
2 install VIA Hyperion drivers -> reboot
3 install WLAN drivers -> reboot
4 install HD Audio -> ignore the new hardware detected things -> reboot
5 Start\Windows Update -> first install the update updates, then the 3 following updates (we really need an SP3...) might need a reboot after that
5.1 WindowsUpdate -> it should show 2 hardware updates, HD Audio and Ethernet LAN. install both.
I haven't tried the modem to see if it works, but it shows fine on the Devide Manager.
