    hi, i love this post, it covers my main problem too: vista!
    I've been trying to install XP the whole day,

    I used Nlite for the slipstream process....
    I selected my windows xp tablet installer (SP0), then i added the driverpack, then built an ISO from that one...
    when I tried to install it to my tabletpc, I would get a bluescreen, saying

    "A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer."

    I then made one with just the SATA driver but I still got the same blue screen...

    I made another with SP2 and SP3, those also gave me the blue screen... :(

    please help, is there something I am doing wrong?
    vista is making my tx2500 run like a pII machine... :(

    thank you.

    are you slipstreaming the correct sata driver?

    I have tried the sata driver (linked in my first post), integrated into a winsows xp tablet 2005, no problem. Make sure the driver, and the integration process is corretly done.

    Btw, vista on any tx2500 (as long as you have at least 3gb ram) won't be as PII, at least a fresh install won't. So if that's your reason installing xp, give vista another chance.

    sorry, I guess I was a bit exaggerating on that pII one... but it does significantly start up and shut down much slower than XP.
    I just wish it was faster, I can imagine running XP on this baby. (amd amd 2.0gHz with 3gb RAM)

    also, I use a lot of resource intensive software like Maya, Photoshop, Premiere, Flash 8 and After Effects.
    I'm usually on the road, so I needed a unit where I could get some work done while traveling.

    Basically I would like to see most of my resources in my laptop go to the software rather than be used for an OS...

    Ive disabled aero and a lot of other services already, so that's helping, but I cant help but think that XP wont hog as much resources from my software than vista, as some of the programs i use (photoshop cs2, flash 8) seem to move a bit clunkier than they did in XP.
    (i already set them to run as windows service pack 2)

    oh yeah, which SATA driver did you use for the windows xp tablet? theres an x64 and an x86?

    hi, just letting you guys know, im still alive, I didn't have a chance to work lately on the rotation problem, but i've uploaded a new pack of driver, fixed the ethernet driver not working, also added the AMD power management software (it works!)

    Anyway, if your interested, my page is still availible here:

    And i've added TONNSSS of information concerning everything.

    Asasghka is it possible you could make individual links to each driver or is that too much :eek:
