Windows Vista Drivers
From Mobile PC Wiki
No Guarantees or promises, but here are some drivers that people have reported to be necessary or helpful in getting Vista Release Candidate 1 to run on various machines.
SATA / Raid Controller Drivers
If you don't have a USB floppy disk drive you may want to see Slipstreaming.
- D00365-002-001.exe - Gateway Notebook Intel SATA Support Driver Version: 22.214.171.1242 Supports: Windows XP
Note: This is the SATA hard drive driver for the Gateway notebook computer models. This driver is only needed during installation of a non-Gateway supplied operating system
- Toshiba Serial ATA hard drive controller driver
Windows 2000 or Windows XP Setup may not be able to complete the installation of Windows, because it does not detect the computer's Serial ATA disk drive controller.
- Windows Vista RC1 Support Toshiba offers driver and BIOS support for Windows® Vista™ RC1 on select models. (Drivers for M400 and Tecra M4)
Gateway / Finepoint
You need to download the calibration driver from Gateway and run M280screenreg.exe from the archive. The driver itself isn't used on Vista, but the M280ScreenReg.exe will apply the OEM's "linearity data" which will allow Vista's calibration to work correctly. I posted a very long article on the Tablet PC Review Spot forums to explain the difference between this calibration and the standard calibration.
There is only one driver for Vista/Finepoint and you have to get it through windows update. The thing you download from Gateway is intended for XP but you don't need the actual driver that's in the zip, just that exe to add the registry values.
- Windows Vista
- Windows Vista 64
- Tried the drivers - version 96.85 Forceware for build 5744 and later.
No luck for TC1100 because there are no GeForce Go drivers.
Release docs also say that there is no NVIDIA control for rotation.
I forced the install, but Vista disabled the driver anyway. WN 14:30, 18 October 2006 (GMT-8)
