XP x64 driver integration


Recommended Posts

As nobody can test all possible combinations of hardware this topic has been created to list those drivers and especially full systems (laptops) people have successfully installed. This thread is primarily meant as auxiliary information for the XP x64 nLite guide.

Posting Guidelines:

1. In order to keep this thread spam free, please do not post here with driver requests or questions, instead start a fresh topic. The MSFN Device Driver subforum or an external site such as Planet AMD64 would be a better place for such enquires.

2. One post per system and one system per post, give appropriate system specifications.

3. Where possible provide links to driver downloads.

4. Paste the drivers section of your nLite "Last Session.ini"

5. If some driver type applications have to be silently installed, list them with the required switches.

6. If you don't use the latest version of a particular driver, state why not.

7. Finally, if there is any other useful information, by all means share it.

Gigabyte EP45-DS3R motherboard (Intel P45 + ICH10R Chipset)

Realtek ALC889A codec, 2 x Realtek 8111C LAN

Gigabyte R485-512H-B graphics (Radeon HD 4850)

Generic UPS


RAID F6 textmode install driver

Intel Chipset driver

Realtek Audio driver

Realtek LAN driver

ATI Radeon driver

Gigabyte Dynamic Energy Saver

Intel Rapid Storage Console



Please read this topic, I find it safest to just include all of the Intel textmode drivers.

My UPS came with PowerManagerII software, silent install switch shown, but you will have to add the file setup.iss to the install folder (Windows subdirectory renamed to PowerManagerII below), mine is attached but you'll need to edit it adding your own serial key.

ATI CCC 9-10 & earlier: For ATI graphics cards integrate the driver with nLite and install the Catalyst Control Center silently at Run2. I use the older 8.12 version as I find that full screen video on the secondary display (TV) is unreliable with the later versions.

rem .Net / DirectX dependent driver applications | Legacy ATI Catalyst Control Center (integrate driver)

ATI CCC 9-11 & later: Run the installer and then cancel it once it has finished extracting, then copy the contents of the \ATI\Support\X-X_xp64_dd_ccc_enu folder to \AddOns\xp64_dd_ccc_enu (i.e. chop the date off), note that there is no need to integrate the driver when running nLite.

HP Compaq B1201TU

Links, notes, et al


Compaq Presario B1200 series Windows XP Pro x64 installation report for December 2011

As always, the first thing I did was start searching for drivers: Compaq B1201TU Driver Downloads

As you can see, there are some entries XP x64 but most of the drivers are missing, namely SATA-AHCI, Audio, Video, Quick-Launch, LAN, WLAN, Modem & Bluetooth.

First I checked out the various manufacturer's sites and grabbed the following drivers:

Intel ICH8M Chipset drivers

Intel F6 AHCI driver (last version to work on ICH8M)

Intel Matrix Storage Manager (optional, last version to work on ICH8M)

Intel Mobile 965 Express Video driver

Intel 4965AG Wireless LAN driver

Broadcom BCM5787M Ethernet driver

Synaptics Touchpad driver . older version

An extensive search of the H.P. support site revealed that only 18 models have full driver support for XP x64. Further searches of the H.P. support site by driver name gave me the latest versions of the other drivers I needed:

ADI SoundMAX Audio Drivers

H.P. Quick Launch Buttons

H.P. Wireless Assistant

H.P./Broadcom Bluetooth Drivers

Agere/LSI HDA Modem Drivers

I used nLite to create a fully up to date install DVD: HOW TO create a fully up to date XP x64 DVD (please read the Intel SATA AHCI driver install topic)

I extracted all the drivers I downloaded (7-Zip is good for this), deleted any folder named x32 or similar and then integrated them with nLite. The relevant sections of my nLite last session file and the two batch files used for installation of applications are pasted below. I then burnt the DVD and proceeded to install Windows XP x64.

Important: You must have enabled the Bluetooth device before installing XP x64 or the process will halt and ask you to activate it via the HP wireless assistant, once that is done Windows finds the device and happily installs it.

You also will have to extract and place at \AddOns the Quick-Launch, Wireless-Assistant and Bluetooth driver installation folders.

The Webcam is treated as a standard USB camera under both XP x32 and XP x64, but in XP x64 it doesn't show up in Windows Explorer (My Computer panel). Not sure why, still works fine though, I tested it with both Nero 6 and Skype.

Laptop specific applications section of Run1_XP-64.bat

%Source%AddOns\WirelessAssistant\Setup.exe /Passive /NoRestart
%Source%AddOns\iata_enu_10.1.0.1008.exe /S

Laptop specific applications section of Run2_XP-64.bat

From an extensive (and time consuming) search of the H.P. download site, I have determined that these are the only laptops to have a full driver set available from H.P. for Windows XP Professional x64 Edition (1000s of laptops have 1 or 2 drivers, they are not listed).

The laptops can be broken down into 3 groups:

1. HP Compaq 6305 Notebook PC series consisting of:

HP Compaq nx6315 Notebook PC

HP Compaq nx6325 Notebook PC

2. HP Compaq 8500 Notebook PC series / HP Compaq 8700 Notebook PC series consisting of:

HP Compaq 8510p Notebook PC

HP Compaq 8510w Mobile Workstation

HP Compaq 8710p Notebook PC

HP Compaq 8710w Mobile Workstation

3. HP EliteBook Notebook PCs consisting of:

HP EliteBook 8440p Notebook PC

HP EliteBook 8440w Mobile Workstation

HP EliteBook 8460p Notebook PC

HP EliteBook 8460w Mobile Workstation

HP EliteBook 8530p Notebook PC

HP EliteBook 8530w Mobile Workstation

HP EliteBook 8540p Notebook PC

HP EliteBook 8540w Mobile Workstation

HP EliteBook 8560w Mobile Workstation

HP EliteBook 8730w Mobile Workstation

HP EliteBook 8740w Mobile Workstation

HP EliteBook 8760w Mobile Workstation

It is worthwhile checking all 18 as sometimes even within a group, the laptops will have different versions of the same driver (updates aren't consistent).

Also keep in mind that Conexant took over marketing ADI's audio chipsets from Dec 2008 and LSI absorbed Agere (modems) in Apr 2007.

I've attached an incomplete Open Office spreadsheet of the drivers for these models that I did up while researching the latest drivers for my Compaq Presario B1201TU laptop. If you're after ADI SoundMAX HD (not Digital HD or AD1984A) drivers, try this one, it's the latest that matches my laptop.

Notes: When integrating drivers be sure to choose PnP mode for the ATI bus drivers, if you choose TextMode the installation will fail.

One has to modify the Radeon video drivers .inf files in order for the card to be recognised, the easiest way being to use the D.H. Mobility Modder. Unfortunately this breaks WHQL signing so in order to force the video driver installation, one has to remove display adaptor support with nLite. Integrate the driver portion and install Catalyst Control Centre at Run2.

On running as a limited user:

One of the best ways to protect your system from malware is to run as a limited user, only switching to an administrator account for updates and installations. One of the major flaws of Windows is that running as a limited user can be a truly frustrating (limited even) experience.

Apart from the usual problems associated with running as a limited user, on the AA-5024WLMi none of the hotkeys work, most importantly the wireless button. After a fair degree of trial and error I’ve managed to get my laptop to behave with limited privileges and now I’ll tell you how to do it too.

1. You need to set up 2 accounts, one will be your Admin account and one your User account (both as Administrators for now).

2. Run “msconfig”, on the startup tab, deselect “WButton”. Exit and reboot.

3. In your Admin account add a shortcut to “WButton” (found at C:\Program Files (x86)\Launch Manager\) to the start menu startup folder.

4. In your User account add three shortcuts, “HotkeyApp”, “OSDCtrl” and “WButton”, in that order, to the startup folder.

5. Right click each of the User startup shortcuts and select properties. Under Shortcut\Advanced select “Run with Different Credentials”

6. Set passwords (at least on the Admin account) and set the User account to limited.

You can now log off and log back on to your limited account. You will get one failure message and be presented with 3 “Run As” boxes. On each select to “Run as Admin” and enter your password. You should now have full functionality and the protection that comes with a limited account.

AutoIt: You can avoid the annoyance of the error message and the 3 "Run As" boxes by using the AutoIt script shown below (skip steps 4 & 5 above).

WinWait ("C:\Program Files (x86)\Launch Manager\HotkeyApp.exe")
WinActivate ("C:\Program Files (x86)\Launch Manager\HotkeyApp.exe")
ControlClick ("C:\Program Files (x86)\Launch Manager\HotkeyApp.exe", "", "[CLASS:Button; TEXT:OK]")
Sleep (20000)
RunAs ("Administrator", "ComputerName", "Password", 0, "HotkeyApp.exe")
Sleep (5000)
RunAs ("Administrator", "ComputerName", "Password", 0, "OSDCtrl.exe")
Sleep (5000)
RunAs ("Administrator", "ComputerName", "Password", 0, "WButton.exe")

Replace ComputerName and Password with the appropriate values for your system (if running 32-bit windows change all occurances of "\Program Files (x86)\" to "\Program Files\"). Compile the script and place at "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Launch Manager" then add a shortcut to the compiled script to the startup folder of each limited user.

Gigabyte K8NS Pro (NVIDIA nForce3 250)

nVidia 5200 based AGP card


nForce 4 chipset drivers (Only SM-Bus, not Audio, Ethernet or IDE)

Realtek Audio Driver

nVidia video driver Version 77.77

Silicon Image sil3512

Marvell 8001 Gigabit



I use an older version of the nVidia driver as theatre mode output to a secondary display (TV) as a limited user is faulty under later versions, the colours are corrupted absolutely.

I tried using a RAID 0 configuration on this board, but it caused networking problems and was slower than just putting the OS on one drive and all user data on the other.
