my question is - why would someone want to? What are the advantages over running it in "Legacy" mode?
Nobody needs to want. I just wanted to check and show that WinXP can be run in EFI mode. I think that this is very interesting.

Re: Brightness (Backlight) control in Windows

Wait, which Intel graphics driver did you use for the HD 3000? Was it this driver ? Yes, this is version 14.51.11.64.5437. I tried also older drivers e.g. from Asrock H61M-DG3/USB3 - 14.51.6.64.5415 but WinXP x64 still not start. Only with Universal VESA/VBE OS start but this driver not support 3D ...

Re: Brightness (Backlight) control in Windows

Brightness (Backlight) control in Windows

Brightness control in Windows works but only if I install a graphics driver. Is it possible to control brightness without installing a graphic driver? In the BIOS, the control works without any driver.

Re: Curiosity - WinXP x64 SP2 works in EFI mode on X220

So in the end VMWare is not involved? You can boot it as a host OS? I guess it is clearer now that I re-read it. Winload.efi is taken from Vista as well? In that case it might be more accurate to say that EFI supports Windows XP, not that Windows XP supports EFI. But I guess it's a meaningless tech...

Curiosity indeed. My understanding is that some hacked virtualization is going on, using the EFI files from Vista / Server 2008 and VMWare? Hacked ??? Simply, EFI files from beta Vista or Server 2008 x64 are suitable for running WinXP x64. Is there a point to it? Even if you want to run XP 64-bit, ...

Today I tried again different sound drivers:
  • 7ka213ww.exe - working external mic
  • q6aud01ws14.exe - not work external mic
This means that 7ka213ww is better.

Has anyone tried to solve the problem with the internal microphone?

Re: X61 Tablet and X61s screen comparison (with PICS)

I compared screens X61 and X61s with CRT monitor Samsung SyncMaster 795DF. This monitor have option for set color temperature.
  • X61 screen is similar to 795DF temp. 9300K (more blue, colder)
  • X61s screen is similar to 795DF temp. 6500K (more green, warmer)
For me X61 screen is better for use.
