WDP install on HP TM2 - 2000ed RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I've been struggling today to get this one installed. Thought it would be a nice machine to test the touch interface.

    My machine : HP TM2-2000ed i3 dualcore+ht, 120GB Vertex2. This machine has 2 touchpoints, has a wacom tablet integrated and is a convertable laptop/tablet.

    My install problem : The installer would simply not go pass the point where it should format and partition the SSD.

    What I tried : Install via USB stick and DVD (usb-dvd, this device has no build in dvd). Downloaded all 3 versions of the installer and tried them all. 32 or 64 bit didn't make a difference, neither did the one with the development tools do any better. Tried formatting / partitioning via win7 disc, but nothing worked.

    How did I succeed : Installed first windows 7 x64 first and then "upgraded" from within windows.

    Disabled the automatic updates, uninstalled the ati drivers and intel drivers (went back to microsoft basic driver) and installed the drivers from HP via usb. I had to force compatibility to install them. (and had to manually reselect the intel driver from ati.)

    Hope this helps others who are trying on this device.

  • I have installed windows 8 x64 on my TM2T 1100 i5 + Intel 80G SSD from windows 7 x64. 

    It works fine except lack of supporting dual graphic cards (Intel + ATI).

  • I did get that to work.

    My problem was that if I did not install the right video drivers I was left with 4 screens and I would have a blank screen on boot.

    Do have some sleep issues though...

  • You are right! I resolved my graphics driver issue this morning.

    This is my way to get the right driver and make CCC woks:

    Click update driver from the ATI graphics card properties dialogue window, select "browse my computer for driver software", then select "let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer". Then you will have a list of compatible drivers. Select ATI 5450, not the newest one with "engineering sample". Restart the computer and install the newest Catalyst Control Center software download from AMD website.  Now I can switch the graphics cards automatically.

    But now I still cannot adjust display brightness.
