Hey guys. I have found this thread extremely helpful. Especially post 6. This process works perfectly. I have even managed to used Nlite to easily create a slipstreamed xp with SATA drivers attached.
I now have a working Dual-Boot of XP / Vista. However...
2) Intel Video Chipset Driver ver 188.8.131.5256;http://support.gateway.com/support/d...&uid=156075670
This Video Driver installs and seems to work. However in DXDIAG, under display it is only showing 128mb of video memory. My MT6821 has 224 of shared mem for the video card.
My purpose for installing XP was to run one game. Day of Defeat: Source.
System requirements are down in the 'P3, 256 / 64m video' range.
When opening the game. I get what looks like a memory error
Here is the error:
Day of Defeat Source: hl2.exe - Application Error
The Instruction at "0x0ff03e2c" referenced memory at "0x0e39a1a0". The memory could not be "read".
Click on OK to terminate the program
so... it looks to me like a driver problem. I tried to download the lastest 2007 Intel 945 Express Chipset Driver which installed and works however, it still only recognises 128mb of video memory.
If anyone has any ideas it would be greatly appreciated. I will try some things on my own and post my results.
Again, thanks for all your help, this thread has saved my @$$.
