  1. @win32 How close are we to being able to use Windows 7 WiFi/Ethernet drivers with the Vista Extended Kernel? A friend of mine wants to know as his Intel WiFi/Ethernet support 7 at a minimum, not Vista. TIA!
  2. Weird that I can post here, but not in his XP UEFI Class 3 thread... I keep getting 403 Forbidden when I try to reply. Anyhow, I'm gonna take this and the XP one and port them both to my website if that is ok. MSFN has been finicky as of late, and I do not want these to be lost!
  3. That's weird... I thought 8.0 (6.2) supported eMMC's out of box?
  4. Virtualization features. You need these enabled to use VirtualBox or VMWare.
  5. IntelPEP.sys must be deleted, otherwise the BSOD will keep happening. Updating the OS will cause the file, and thus, the BSOD to return, but it can be fixed again by simply deleting the file again. The INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE BSOD that you are getting could be the result of the drive mode. Most newer Intel laptop's default to VMD mode, which is only compatible with Windows 10 and 11. You will need to pop open the BIOS and switch it from VMD to SATA mode. This will fix the BSOD, although, how you got 8.1 to detect and install to the drive (if it's set to VMD mode), I do not know. Maybe it's not set to VMD mode. Who knows.
  6. I had whitebear do that and there was nothing. I had him disable a few things like Parallel and Serial ports (in case those were erroneously being picked up as a floppy drive, like with Windows 2000 on InsydeH2O BIOS), Intel Turbo and Fastboot, TPM, and even USB3. I did give him my WinXP 64-bit ISO on the off chance the ISO he was using is somehow corrupted.
  7. I'll delete that part, then. Forgot about that rule.
  8. I have an Acer Aspire A315-21 and I decided to mess around with Windows Vista, and with the help of @K4sum1, got the AMD graphics to work wonderfully after installing @win32's Extended Kernel (I also got XP 64-bit to install). Laptop Specs: AMD Radeon 9220e Radeon R4 5 compute cores 2C+3G 1.60 GHz. 8GB of ram (can be upgraded to 12, but allegedly can be upgraded to 20 by putting a 16 in there, but this is untested by me, and I offer no guarantees!) Acer Aspire A315-21 with Ethernet, USB3 port on the left, below the Ethernet, and two USB2 ports below the power supply plug. AMD Radeon R4 Stoney Ridge Graphics. 1TB SSD (for this test only. The actual product will ship with a 256GB SSD that has Windows 10 Home Edition). What I got working: Realtek Audio Realtek Ethernet Elan Touchpad The entire AMD Chipset including USB3 and SATA except for AMD Serial IO AMD Graphics. Realtek Card Reader. What didn't work: Qualcomm Atheros QCA9377 WiFi (unsupported card, needs to be swapped out with a Vista capable card, Ethernet used, or USB WiFi carried in). Qualcomm Atheros QCA9377 Bluetooth (although you can get rid of its Unknown Device by installing the Generic Microsoft Bluetooth Device). AMD Trusted Platform Module 2.0 (this caused a BSOD upon installing it if I'm remembering correctly). Untested: NVMe (I could never get the NVMe slot in this laptop to work with any of my drives. Maybe they are the wrong type, who knows). Known Issues: There's nothing show-stopping here. Does not suffer from the Haswell bugs obviously, but more importantly, it does not suffer from the Ryzen BSOD bugs! The perfect platform for running Vista on 2019 hardware! Properties: Device Manager: AMD Radeon R4 Stoney Ridge Graphics: AMD PSP 2.0 Device: AMD SATA Controller: AMD USB 3.0 Host Controller: Qualcomm Atheros QCA9377 (unsupported on Vista): Enjoy! EDIT: Yes, this topic was inspired by @Carlos S. M.'s topic on running Windows 7 on Alder Lake. You can tell by the format of this thread being very similar to his, lol.
  9. Hi @UsefulAGKHelper! I have Coffee Lake as well, but inside a Dell Precision 7530! It is also UEFI Class 3, like yours (although it does contain a Legacy Mode that cannot boot internal devices such as hard drives, only external devices like USBs). I did not think it was even possible to install XP on machines like ours, so I'm gonna have to try this out and see what happens! As for the Intel Serial IO I2C Host Controller, I have never gotten the Skylake driver to work under Coffee Lake and Windows 7, even after modding my Device ID, and others, into it! I don't know why exactly it doesn't work. If I use Opencore to load specific DSDT tables, I can get the Intel HID-Event Filter driver to show itself within 7's DM (it's hidden in normal boot due to how the DSDT is programed to dole out devices based on the OS requirements for said device), but this has no effect on the Serial IO drivers. If it doesn't work under 7, it won't work under Vista, let alone XP. It does, however, work just fine under 8.1, so there is something in that OS that it wants that would need to be backported, but I have not figured out what this is. Also, I'm surprised the DM exposed the Serial IO drivers from the get-go. I'm surprised there isn't a version check on those in the DSDT tables that blocks them from being seen within XP/Vista. I do wonder, if AMD Serial IO drivers could be forced to work under an Intel board... In the Windows 7 on the Intel Alder Lake Z690 thread, @Carlos S. M. managed to force the AMD XHCI driver to work despite it being an Intel USB board, so that's why I'm wondering if AMD Serial IO drivers could be forced. I'm gonna try that soon as well.
  10. Your best bet is to hook into Ethernet (whether it be Broadcomm, Realtek, or Intel, those drivers are eays to find) and then run Snappy Driver Installer Origin. This should pick up the WiFi driver, after whic you can discard Ethernet. For some reason, Windows XP and Vista Centrino drivers are insanely hard to find! Only Windows 7 and later seem easy to find (as you can find them on the computer manufacturers website).
  11. Yeah, you need to fix USB2 for it to work within setup as it is broken. It's either that or use a PCI-E PS/2 expansion card (if your computer supports such dongles) with PS/2 mouse/keyboard to get through setup and then fixing the USB drivers within Device Manager, as noted here: http://windowsenthusiasts1.epizy.com/USB2Issues.html
  12. I can confirm that these work with 8.1. You will need to disable driver signature enforcement for these to work, however, and, at least in my case, the drivers will sometimes revert to the Microsoft Basic Display Adapter randomly, but your experience may differ of course!
  13. It works! https://imgur.com/aBzWCIm https://imgur.com/kgLmnaD
