  1. I wouldn't be surprised if Microsoft would completely wipe the Catalog, leaving only updates for Windows 8.1 and later. Those who have any interest on old OSes should download everything ASAP. Microsoft seems to taking seriously this time.
  2. Did Microsoft already pull the plug on Microsoft Update (which includes Office updates)? Installed Office 2010 just to grab a list of updates, but it just keeps scanning for updates forever.
  3. Hi, I'm busy with other stuff, so can't provide you with a script/batch file to rename the files. I'm sure you'll eventually figure it out by yourself. For obvious reasons, you shouldn't have such long filenames to avoid issues during installation because of long pathnames exceeeding MAX_PATH size.
  4. I'll send you a PM with files/directions.
  5. On XP. Even if it doesn't work on 8.1, I'd try it on XP anyway, as sometimes the manufacturer disables the driver/control panel when an unsupported OS is detected. Regarding the fix for SmartGesture 1.0.27 (I've linked above), we need to patch AsusTPApi.dll and copy Vista beta build 5048 versions of powrprof.dll and setupapi.dll, which include the missing functions. If you do manage to get the package installed on XP, let me know the folder where AsusTPApi.dll is copied to. Is QuickGesture.exe loaded during boot on Windows 8.1? This one it's harder to fix, as it uses Windows 8 Gesture API.
  6. Did you try to install the Elan "" driver from jaclaz? I've got na idea. Download this: http://ftp.tekwind.co.jp/pub/asustw/nb/Drivers/Touchpad/SmartGesture_Win7_64_Z1027.zip If you run setup, does it proceed with the installation? If so, I already have a fix for the missing API calls, you just need to replace some files.
  7. Did you run the installer? I've extracted the files by "running" the MSI in Administrative mode: msiexec /a SetupTPDriver.msi I've packed the drivers for you (the settings you need to "copy" from Windows 7/8.1, as the apps are heavily Vista+ dependant): https://www.mediafire.com/file/d9hfe8xjw164837
  8. Hi, found these which definitively work on XP. http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/nb/DriversForWin8/SmartGesture/SmartGesture_Win7_8_VER201.zip 01/10/2013, http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/nb/Apps_for_Win10/SmartGesture/SmartGesture_Win10_64_VER4023.zip.zip 01/13/2015,
  9. Here is the latest/last driver for XP, which fixes the KRACK vulnerability. 1030.31.0102.2018 (Nov 6, 2018)
  10. @jaclaz Pretty sure this is a driver feature. Basically it does what certain USB to SATA bridge controllers do. It detects the disk geometry and automatically changes the sector size reported to Windows according to the table I've posted earlier. At the same time, it "combines" as many 512 bytes sectors as need to match the sector size reported. The driver has some kind of protection. I've almost got it to work: currently only detects optical drives.
  11. Hopefully @Snear is able to test the drivers I've posted here (specially the v3.1 ones). Thanks for the Acer link, it's exactly the same driver I've packaged. I'm sure this AHCI/RAID driver written by Promise automatically changes the sector size according to the disk size. Found an article on Promise's KB regarding support for disks larger than 2TB: For this logical drive size | Select this sector size Up to 16 TB | 4096 bytes (4 KB) Up to 8 TB | 2048 bytes (2 KB) Up to 4 TB | 1024 bytes (1 KB) Up to 2 TB | 512 bytes (512 B) Understanding the 2 TB Limit in Windows Storage TechNet article has comments from owners of Promise products that confirm 7.5 TB disk being usable with Windows 2000 Server.
  12. NAPA is the codename of the SATA controllers using Promise's IP. Sure I can use 7-Zip. Replaced .rar with .7z package. I'm use WinRAR because of the Recovery Record feature for safety reasons.
  13. It's clear that there is something really special in the AHCI driver. Controllers with the following IDs are from NAPA series: PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_4391 PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_4392 PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_4393 PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_4394 PCI\VEN_1022&DEV_7801 PCI\VEN_1022&DEV_7802 PCI\VEN_1022&DEV_7803 PCI\VEN_1022&DEV_7804 AMD licensed Promise's IP for use with their chipsets, there are Promise strings inside the driver (.sys) and the coding is really close to Promise's own FastTrack series drivers. At that time the USB controllers used NEC's IP and the drivers are really similar. They've put the same driver in different folders just to make it clear both chipsets are supported. What is the error message you get when installing V3.1.1540.127? I've put together my collection of AMD drivers, please confirm that the included v3.1.1540.86 is the same as the one you're using. Included versions are: - 3.1.1540.103, 3.1.1540.123, 3.1.1540.151, 3.1.1547.124 - 3.2.1540.24, 3.2.1548.37 - 3.3.1540.40 - (supports Intel controllers, not WHQL for XP) http://www.mediafire.com/file/22ainwe5hip0sv4 Please try them all.
  14. Just tested with BWC's Extended Core and the XHCI USB3.1 driver also has issues with PAE enabled. What a shame. Will update first post with this info.
