XP x64 on Thinkpad T60?

Recommended Posts

Pretty soon i will Have an IBM...err...Lenovo Thinkpad T60 to mess with... and, eventually, I'll upgrade the CPU to Intel Core 2 Duo processor T7600 Which is 64-bit. Has anyone run XPx64 on a T60? I can't seem to find anything on it. Any chance of XP32 drivers working on 64 bit? I may be able to find drivers for the individual parts from their manufacturers, but i am not entirely sure of the hardware in it yet as i don't have the laptop. (snail mail takes a bit...)

I'm asking now because i don't want to buy a XPx64 licence if it might not work...

 

Ill post more details when i receive this laptop.:)

I've tried installing x64 on my R60 a while back with I used an offline driverpack to have no luck.. 32-bit drivers just don't like 64-bit OSes :(
I couldn't be bothered looking for drivers so I quit at the time.

Here's the video driver for the 945GM chipset
Driver for an intel wireless card
Searching the internet, SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio has no 64-bit driver.

I feel lucky My Compaq 620 and ASUS G73JH X5 has both 32bit and 64bit drivers .

Yeah I figured... I'll do some (more) poking around myself, but I don't think it's gonna happen (with a full set of drivers, at least.):(

Just a hint to go over to the ThinkPad forum ... they have several sellers that will also build a FrankenPad to order or have built several already for themselves. There will probably be some help and answers there.

Just to add ... when you get the Thinkpad T60, if you find the fan never shuts off ... there are two good fan utilities in the forum developed by members.

... on that page go to the bottom thread 'ThinkPad Utility Work Area' ...

I like TPFC v0.62 by troubadix but I don't use X64.

At the TP forum there is also a lot of reading.

The system actually has an ATI Mobility Radeon X1300, easily found on windows update.

chipset:

Not seeing a LAN driver anywhere, not huge problem because its a laptop...

Modem (whatever point it may have in this modern time)

Infared may just be a generic driver, as well as cardbus.

ooops forgot TPM

from https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/forums/v3_1/forumtopicpage/board-id/tp05_en/thread-id/16185/page/1

has instructions on the device (atm1200)

Quote

12. Atmel TPM (trusted platform module) driver installation for XP x64 mini-howto
prerequisite:
Identify which of the unknown devices you'll work with:
Have a look in Device manager and right click on the unknown device -> properties -> details -> look for the "ACPI\ATM1200...." identifier (go though the unknown devices until you find the right one). This is it. That we're gonna work upon.

This was a bit trickier than usual "download setup and run".Lenovo didnt include the 64bit ".sys" and ".dll" files into the setup file they supply.
As I wrote in my last post, i missed 2 particular files. So tried to do a bit hunting again ....

firstly:
go to the Atmel corp. www and download trusted platform module driver from them here
http://www.atmel.com/forms/software_...M Driver.zip

I'll have to fill in some crap info in the form for the download to start ...
You save file "Atmel TPM Driver.zip" and then you unzip it => voila you get the "Atmel TPM Driver.msi" file, which you run in order to install driver.

secondly:
After running that ".msi" file, it again! ended with some error. I thought ***** ...
I looked up and googled for some tool to be able to extract manually ".msi" files ...
found here nice one! :
http://blogs.pingpoet.com/overflow/a...6/02/2449.aspx

Dowload that tool, unzip it somewhere and follow the steps described on above web page to extract the ".msi" installer.
e.g. I extracted it like that (you sure probably have other dir names):

C:\LessMSIerables>lessmsi.exe -x "c:\bordylek\Atmel TPM Driver.msi" c:\bordylek\atmel.tpm.msi.file_unpacked

In my directory ("atmel.tpm.msi.file_unpacked\SourceDir\temp") i FINALLY FOUND the two missing files:
atmeltpm64.sys and tpmddl64.dll

thirdly:
last things last - usual stuff -> manually update the driver for "unknown device" ... firstly i directed it to folder where i saved the atmel tpm from lenovo and when it complained about those above mentioned files, i redirected to the folder with extracted ".msi" installer...

uff this was longer, but i had to write it down before i forgot everything!

Hope it works for you too!
