  2. Of course, Dietmar deseves respect, and, in what regards to contributing, he did so more than most already. That said, his results with Kai's NVMe.sys were quite different than mine, and I suspect that's due to the fact he used a single NVMe disk stand-alone (and hence caused XP not to load scsiport.sys during start-up), while my results were due to my not being interested in actually booting from NVMe, but just using it on a system booted from any other device, and so doing it in a machine with other SATA HDDs and SSDs (which lead XP to load scsiport.sys, and this *seems* to be the reason why storport.sys fails to load afterwards). This is a question that remains to be eventully elucidated. Another thing is the "modded acpi.sys" which is referred to here and there, most often at Fernando's, but not released in any form nor, AFAIK, described suficiently for others to reproduce the mod. By now it's pretty clear that either modding the actual board BIOS or (much better) replacing the default acpi.sys by a modded one is of paramount importance to get useful results from Sunrise Point and later chipsets. And, BTW, for those wondering, no: there is *NO* intel USB3.x drivers for XP up to the present. But, for non-intel USB3.0 controllers, drivers do exist and work well (Renesas/NEC and ASMedia, at least). But all in due time. I, for one, right now, am just curious, nothing more, of course!

  3. who was the M$ CEO when W8 (mobile OS) was first released ? unfortunately most people now do only surf the web with tablets and phones, it's not that he doesn't care about Windows.

  4. You may want to tone it down a bit. Dietmar may be not in the top list of "communicators", but he is usually very reliable in his reports. Remember (maybe you don't even know this) that if we can boot XP from USB is mainly due to his research in 2005-2006, JFYI: https://web.archive.org/web/20161206070712/http://www.911cd.net/forums//index.php?showtopic=14181 jaclaz

  8. Don't go off-topic guys. Create a separate topic for AMD-ish issues. I don't have lots of options here as the Nvidia GTX 1050Ti isn't supported by neither of those drivers, so the only way to get around it is to mod the .inf file by adding the hardware IDs, which only works on 372.70. Absolutely no other driver has either enabled aero or had any type of 3d acceleration.

  9. I don't think trying other driver versions would be an option; as far as I know, the modified 372.70 drivers are the only ones that support both Vista and the GTX 1000 series GPUs, unless there's a way to make older drivers support the newer graphics cards. Newer drivers don't work, most likely due to missing Win7+ dependencies not found in Vista that the drivers rely on to work correctly. I don't remember what version exactly I tried (this was about a year ago), but I do know that it was post 370.xx series. I received a Code 39 error in Device Manager upon installing the drivers, and the drivers would not function properly. I know this solution is pretty obvious, but you never know... But do you have Service Pack 2 (KB948465), Platform Update (KB971512), and Platform Update Supplement (KB2117917) installed? Platform Update and Platform Update Supplement for Windows Vista adds support for the DirectX 11 API, as well as a few additional APIs from Windows 7 to improve compatibility with newer software and drivers. Also, I've found that the update slightly improves overall system performance and stability. You may also try installing the Driver Framework version 1.11 update for Windows Vista which improves support for newer drivers, see here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2685813/user-mode-driver-framework-version-1-11-update-for-windows-vista--wind Personally, I use the modified 372.70 drivers in my environment, but with a GTX 750ti, and I also don't game much except for playing certain Dolphin games (i.e. SpongeBob Battle for Bikini Bottom), and I have no issues doing that. Perhaps someone else gaming with Vista using a similar configuration as you (GTX 10xx card with the same drivers) could chime in with a more helpful reply. I hope I helped you regardless, though. Good luck!
