When I wrote my last post, it was not my intention to foil the already given support, but after having done a look into this thread I got the impression, that gipsyshadow is still far away from what he has intended to do: an unattended fresh install of XP with integrated SP3 and all the drivers for his laptop.
I am sorry to have bothered anybody.
i'm not bothered Fernando 1
and i'm glad you expressed your opinions and suggestions. it's obvious i'm here as newbee to LEARN and i know i'll get many other troubles (...continue reading and you'll see
) but i must start from a point a day or another one and i can get skills only doing mistakes and correcting myself step-by-step. i hope this thought is shared by you nlite advanced users on this forum... else it'd be useless our newbee subscriptions to it

Also, please note that the Acer
downloads include (separately) both AGP and USB drivers.
i saw the usb drivers in acer site but honestly i've never downloaded and installed them: think that there's not a specific usb drivers installation option in my native acer cd GUI (html window opened by autorun) so i've always thought they were included somewhere in chipset driver or anyway they were just included in win xp OS. do you want to tell me i need to integrate them too?
on the contrary i've collected the other drivers (graphic, audio...) on the manifacturers' sites and i'll join them in nlite with their own inf files.
I also note that having looked at the Chipset Driver that multiple Chipsets are listed. Not having downloaded the remainder of the drivers and inspected them, might I suggest that you do, unpack them (however - still try Universal Extractor which usually works), do a "search text" on them for each Device that you already have listed in Device Manager to get the specific INF's. This will only be necessary when there is more than one per "package". As you already found out, there could be more recent drivers than those on the Acer site.
by the way a new doubt has raised up in front of me: what to do in the audio driver case? i can't understand what's the right inf file. in device manager i can see the driver details for "Realtek AC'97 Audio" and all the installed files in system folders are shawn. but if i try to find, let's say, "soundman.exe" and many others among the inf files' folder then all of them cointain it but if i search "drmk.sys" then there're no results! what's the right one?
the last driver i'd want to integrate is the PCMCIA's. here you can find it: http://www.kraun.it/...2K_XP_Vista.zip
for this one (and i promise it's the last one) i have a similar doubt to the audio one but this time no file shawn in driver's details in devide manager is found within the .inf files of the package! maybe i'm wrong with the device name? i looked for "controller open host nec from pci to usb", maybe is this or not?
moreover i saw this: when i try to install this package by setup.exe all goes well but if i unpack it and i try to start the exe files (rebootnt.exe or ocbtray.exe) nothing happens!
is this regular? can i anyway go on with this driver's integration choosing "ousb2.inf" to give nlite to (because it's the one i see during the installation)?
thank you all
