this must be the third time I am attempting this with various versions of either vista or Windows 7.
Technically I could use this barely with the integrated standard vga compatible drivers coming with vista and Windows 7.
However, video acceleration, opengl, etc. are not available and make the whole windows experience much less enjoyable.
The guides posted here have somewhat helped me so far.
I am using a Dell latitude d505 with the troublesome 855gm/gme chipset. Now, with the help of this thread I managed
to get the driver to stick somewhat. In safe mode for example the driver does show up as intel 855gm, however, booting
Windows 7 normally with or without driver signature enforcement does always cause a crashdump (bsod) referring to ialmnt5.sys.
No matter what I do I cannot seem to get past this issue.
Funnily enough I could even get the intel installer itself to execute under compatibility mode but this also just resulted in
the same issue.
I also tried disabling the integrity checks via elevated command prompt. Again, no change.
It is starting to look next to impossible to get this to run properly here, in which case i would have to revert to XP
