    I had no problems upgrading to SP1, hell I even did it early, with narry a hiccup. Your statement that MS needs to get their act together is very misleading. It is not totally MS's fault that SP1 had some issues, but rather the OEM's with software like the stupid Shock Sensor Utility that was not even compatible with SP1. Um, but how long was SP1 available for testing? Are OEM's exempt from doing software testing to makre sure the stuff they include with the computer will continue to work into the future? Guess so. Granted, almost all OEM's do suck when it comes to software updates, however, placing the blame squarely on MS is not fair. I would reccomend upgrading to SP1, but do your research first. That is what I did and I had zero issues.

    hello to every one.

    first of all, sorry for my poor english...

    second one: i have sucefully instaled a Beta Windows 7 on my ST4120P (model of 2003)...

    it's running nice for a Pentium-M III 933MHz / 768Mb RAM.
    So, here is a picture of it:

    greeting and happy new year 2009!!!

    that is unusual, the pen should be installed by default, particularly if it is a wacom based pen, which i assume it is.

    Can you post a screen shot of your device manager.

    From what I understand, the driver support for Windows 7 is identical to that of Windows Vista. Thus, at least in theory, all Vista drivers should work without any problem in Windows 7 betas. Have you tried these drivers?

    I concur. If one is running any flavor of Vista, installing SP1 is a must. It takes care of several issues, updates certain drivers, and increases file copy/transfer speed. Furthermore, for any problems encountered by the installation of SP1, Microsoft provides full free support.

    For the installation to go without a problem, make certain that you clean up your system from all temp files and directories. This is just good housekeeping. CCleaner is a free program that can clean your system effectively before installing SP1. I believe that SP2 should be available by the end of March and it would contain a number of system upgrades (such as full support for Blue-Ray, new versions of Bluetooth etc, etc).

    I think that Vista good a bad wrap because it was released when full driver support was lacking. This is not the case anymore, but old systems should not be upgraded.

    Hi,

    I can install the driver but it comes up that the driver is not WHQL Signed. Then it won't start. I read somewhere Windows 7 Beta will not play well with unsigned drivers.

    Do you have the buttons working? i.e. rotate screen.

    Did you try disabling all the com and IR ports? Then try the driver.

    If some people can get the driver working on Vista then Windows 7 should work too.

    Cheers,
    Al

    I would really love to be able to run Vista or W7 on my Tablet - so if you can give me a pointer it would be very much appreciated.

    It's not Wacom based. It's a passive touch screen.

    Surely it's possible to get the 4120P working under W7 if it supposedly works under Vista.
