  1. No, the original post says offset 36214. If the storage driver is already included, maybe I could follow the instructions in this PDF using <warez> to install Windows XP with a patched ACPI.SYS to the eMMC? I'll include the {unredistributable attachment removed} unmodded ACPI.SYS v5512 for reference: EDIT: Just saw this. It looks like it's supposed to be done after installation? Should I install an unmodded version of XP to the eMMC, then do this patch?
  2. Thanks so much for explaining this. I'm probably doing this wrong (I've never edited hex before), but which bytes to I change at 0x00036214? I'm not sure exactly what to look for, but it doesn't look like there are any bytes corresponding to JL. Do I just change that one byte to 90?
  3. This isn't related to mass storage drivers, but according to this post, this is what causes the ACPI error I was having (STOP: 0x000000A5 (0x00000011, 0x00000008, 0xF6D3A1C8, 0x20120913): Unfortunately, I'm a newb and I have no idea what that patch is or how to apply it. The post also says that some generic Microsoft USB 3.0 driver works in Windows XP: I can't seem to find that specific version of the driver, but then again I don't really know where to look. What are some places I might find it? EDIT: I found this, maybe it would work?
  4. Oh, I thought you meant that it wasn't x86. @Ximonite, do you happen to know where that .inf came from? I'd love to get the driver files if they are available. I checked the UEFI settings and while there is no setting to disable USB 3.0, there is a Legacy USB support option as well as the ability to change mass storage device emulation type. I'll set the installation media to CD-ROM and see if that allows me to boot off of the USB drive rather than an external CD drive.
  5. @bigmuscle Yes, please consider this for the future development of Aero Glass. If you want to keep it paid, at least provide a bit more communication.
  6. OK, I did some searching and found this driver {unredistributable attachment removed}: After reading through that entire thread, I'm a bit less confident that this will work. It seems like they tried everything and couldn't get past the BSOD errors. Still, I would like to give it a shot. I realize now that I probably also need a driver for USB 3.0 support since this laptop only has two USB 3.0 ports. Is it possible to get the Intel® USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller Driver on Windows XP?
  7. I also pulled together the Intel SD Host Controller driver. Is there any way to tell if it is compatible with XP, assuming it is of any use at all? {unredistributable attachment removed}
  8. We all realize that. However, Aero Glass essentially being freemium software, a little more communication wouldn't hurt.
  9. OK, thanks! Will definitely try this when I get the chance.
  10. I'm currently running a minimal version of Windows 8.1 x64 since it doesn't work very well on 10. The hardware ID for PCI Express Root Complex is ACPI\VEN_PNP&DEV_0A08. When I mentioned disk.inf, I meant to say that I copied all the driver files referenced by device manager as well as disk.inf.
  11. OK, so installing XP on this device should be possible, right? Can anyone point me to a driver that will get XP to recognize the eMMC as the internal hard disk?
  12. Really? I remembered hearing that Windows XP works with CSM since CSM boots in the same way as BIOS systems. From Wikipedia: If Windows XP doesn't work on CSM, is there any way to deploy it using the EFI files from Vista so that it works on UEFI? Edit: Also curious as to why exactly XP would work on legacy BIOS and not CSM if CSM replicates legacy BIOS. What exactly is the difference?
  13. It's connected to the SD Host Controller, which is connected to the PCI Express Root Complex. So I'm guessing the bus for the eMMC is PCIe. So which drivers would I need to slipstream into the installer to get it to recognize the eMMC?
  14. Thanks for the reply. I figured it would be OK to use the driver since it was from 2006. As for the eMMC bus, I’m a bit of a noob so I’m not quite sure. Do you know how I can check?
