    I know, don't worry.
    I hope that anyone could modify the driver in Vista... to obtain a FireGL.
    (I don't know, how work the patch, if I could to understand this, maybe I try to make this).

    Samov, your version of Vista for the Upgrade Program, is the same DVD as the original? What do you think? Works well with the all the hardware or you have any device unknown? (I sent the information for the upgrade too, and the DVD will come in 2 or 3 weeks...).

    Thank you.

    Hi everybody,

    First, thanks a lot to huangyanhao and others !!!

    Now, I tried the patched driver under Vista 32, but I got only 24 with Specviewperf 8.1 (37 under XP SP2).

    Did anybody get the same ?

    Thanks.

    well... the dvd is bios locked to HP... which means that if you install on a non certified bios you'll have to activate it...

    as for the software included... it's the same

    I have used the 8.263 driver patched under XP, but install under Vista.

    It gives some boost but overall is less than under XP.

    Here are the results of 3dsmax test with Specviewperf 8.1:

    That's all I was able to do.

    I tried to install the Control Panel, after an error, it was possible to open the control panel and select Configuration... but after reboot, Vista was saying there was an error with the Control Panel and it gave some problems.

    Now, go back to only driver.

    If all that you said is true, Good Work D21, the inprovement is there! not the same as XP but, not bad ;)

    Samov, one question, do you have any patch to make XP x64 softmod (not vista)? (I rode that you know that in this forum anyone made it).

    Thank you.

    Ohh, one thing I forgot to say:

    When under Vista 32 with the XP patched driver 8.263 (don't have tried the others for the moment),

    the Aero function is disable... don't know why.

    It is disable because the Windows XP driver don't support WDM to run aero

    One question Samov, what drivers do you use in your laptop, mobility drivers and then patched, or FireGL drivers modded to mobility drivers and then patched?
    I use mobility drivers, because the patch of huangyanhao works perfectly in ATi mobile 6.9 drivers. In fact the firegl to mobility drivers method and then patch, don't work well for me.

    Thank you.

    there is no special mobility driver... they are both catalyst.

    it's like this...

    catalyst driver -> .inf files -> your card

    if you do not have mobility .inf s ... you can't install the driver... i mean you can(i even tried to force install an mobility x600 as a 9800 and it worked ok)... the fact that modding does not work on your part might be from corrupted .inf ... since it is the .inf file that tells which files to install for each card... mainly... the atioglgl firegl driver.

    Maybe I don't explain well.
    There is two ways to have a fireGL drivers in a notebook:

    1) Download Mobility Drivers.
    Patch it with .rts file.
    Install it with the device manager method.

    2) Download FIREGL drivers.
    Convert to mobility drivers with any software.
    Patch it with .rts file.
    Install it with the device manager method.

    I had the first method that works perfect for me. The second method don't works well for me. The performance were poor.

    What do you use 1) or 2) method? If you use the second method, can you explain me, how to get a correct driver?
    Please ask me with easy explain, because I don't understand english 100%.

    Thank you.

    i use method numer two... but i have custom made .inf's

    converting the drivers with.. say.. DHmodtool does not add the necessary settings for correct firegl setup.

    PS. i sent you a PM... check that link.
