There should be a way to add it to the registry as long as you know where to put that key. DId you try putting that key in yourself and see if it works for what you are looking for?

Did you do a Find of the whole registry for PNP0501? I found more than one in mine on Win7 Ult. 64-bit but not in the exact location in your post.
