Re: Bios Updates for AMILO Notebook Pi 1556, Xi 1526, Pa 1538, X

My Amilo Pi 1556 notebook is suffering from exact this problem. 1. Where can I download the latest BIOS? The link in the top post doesn't work, and I can't find it anywhere on the Fujitsu Siemens site (all I find is this which describes the same issue, but doesn't contain any relevant download link!...

[Amilo P] USB 2 on Pi 1556?

I have several USB 2 devices (mp3 player, external harddisk, etc) and they all get reported as "USB 1" in Windows XP on my Amilo Pi 1556 (which is supposed to have USB 2 ports). Obviously this sucks, as I get copy speeds of no higher than about 1 MB/sec, whereas the same devices do over 10...

yeah I wasn't sure if just the MassStorage DP was enough or that I'd also need the ChipSet pack. Just in case I took both.

Believe it or not, I got it to work with that DriverPack stuff!! :D :D

Pretty lousty though, that big companies like Intel and Fujistu-Siemens are unable to solve this or provide any service on this, and using some hobby stuff from enthusiast freaks actually gets it working.

Re:

While using DriverPacks BASE, at some screen there's a checkbox for textmode drivers, which you need to check. Did you do that? Nope :( Someone @ DriverPacks.net pointed me on that as well. Trying again, some hope remaining.. :) Found one forum thread , where the person has the same controller, tha...

Luc: you can't disable it in this bios :( Shtraue: I downloaded the Intel Matrix Storage Manager but that seems impossible to use. Frist I ran it on my backup system (win 2000), and it said "your system does not meet the minimum requirements" (excuse me, just to unpack some drivers???) The...

How to get SATA drivers to install XP Pro on Amilo Pi 1556 ?

I bought an Amilo Pi 1556 and try to do a clean XP Pro install (originally came with XP Home Dutch but I need English). Setup doesn't recognize the SATA harddisk. I found a driver for the Intel 82801GBM SATA Controller on a CD that came with the notebook, copied that to a USB stick (there's no flopp...
