You can't screw-up the APX-mode USB driver on the gTablet--it's built into the system firmware --ie. it's hard-coded. A HW error is a more likely culprit (if, indeed, the PC doesn't see the tablet in APX mode) . Disassemble the gTab and carefully inspect the USB port and surroundings for stray bits of metal, or solder, or cut traces, etc.
I tried a linux connection and it didn't recognize it either. I was using a live cd and tried to get the startup to locate a driver, no such luck.
Since you can use Linux, do this:
1. Boot into Linux.
2. Put the tablet into APX mode (the screen will turn off).
3. Plug the cable from the tablet into the PC.
4. Run these command (only the stuff in bold
) and post their output (or a screenshot):
$ dmesg | tail -n20

I can't get it past the boot loader error.
Take a snap and post it.
