Hello all.

I will update these instructions as needed.

With these instructions you can install any version of windows XP, SP2 or SP3. It doesn´t need to be a tablet edition. I recommend using a lite or optimized version.

As far as I know, only two things are not working, resolution changer and tablet input panel. Both will be fixed soon.

You have to install Activesync too if you want to access the other half of your Shift.

Thank you to all the people who contributed on the other thread!

Enjoy!

1.- Download and save to a USB disk drive:
http://www.filefactory.com/file/fa3eb2/n/drivers_shift_XP_rar
and https://phatpipez.homeftp.org/HTCShift/Shift/TabletPC_PatchXPproSP2.exe


or http://torrents.thepiratebay.org/4449594/drivers_shift_XP.rar.4449594.TPB.torrent
Be sure to extract the rar file before starting or have a unrar program installer available, you cannot extract rar files on a newly installed windows XP!


2.- Install XP. Use your own version in your own language!
Choose same disk and fast NTFS format. Use the administrator account for now.
Let it finish ignoring any message about the screen format, etc
3.- Eject CD-Drive
Insert USB pen drive

4.- Run HTC Shift XP Drivers/Chipset/infinst_autol.exe next, next, next… reboot when finished.

Thanks for the step-by-step guide dproldan! I have a couple questions:

- What is left out as far as functionality with the XP install compared to Vista or will everythign work as far as the camera, control center buttons, etc...
- Any hopes soon for resolution changer and tablet input panel functioning?
- Without the mobility center built-in Vista, is the conenction to snapview done just via active sync?
- Download link for TabletPC_PatchXPproSP2.exe does not work and torrent has absolutely no availability. Any alternatives?

Thanks again!

Which drivers are for the G3 modem? I dont see them in the XP Drivers pack, or, are they built-in in XP already?

Also, any luck now or in the future to make the GPS work under XP?

You can use the 3G modem with USBTool and internet sharing programs from the windows mobile side, the RNDIS drivers are installed automatically the first time you connect.

GPS works fine on XP using franson GPSGate and activesync.

If I install XP on my Shift...

Will things still be controlled in SnapVUE?

I say this because my audio is dead, because snapvue is dead--if I install XP will sound be dead or does installing XP Usurp Snapvue?

Here's some comments surrounding these questions.

1. Your SnapVue must be Liberated to use 3G for XP.
2. You must install ActiveSync on XP
3. Go into SnapVUe and open USB Tool and "Attach to Vista"
4. Active sync will start.
5. Once connected/sync'd go to Snap Vue, Programs, Internet sharing. XP will find the network sharing connection and set it up
6. You now have 3G on XP

ultraman982 - why not ressurect SnapVue or is it totally screwed? HTC have the clear SnapVue tool which I have used successfully...turned it back to normal. I have had nil sound issues.

In fact, to get things as clean as possible I did an Fcn F3 for Vista, cleared SnapVue then started from there. Good to start with a clean base.

18.- copy HTC Shift XP Drivers\WLAN\sdbus.sys to c:\windows\system32\drivers\ say yes to the replace dialog and reboot.

Good work ! Very Well !!!

Only 2 notes :

1- what about right buttons ?

2- i must entered by recovery console for copying sdbus.sys, otherwise XP put in \system32\drivers an older version of this file.

Sorry for my bad English - I love spaghetti & pomodoro ! :D

-right buttons work as expected, keep the stilus pressed until a mouse icon appears

- I didn't have to do anything with the recovery console, but I used an optimized version. I'll update the instructions if more people report the same problem.

I'm stuck with the cygwin part of the installation. Can anybody help me please with a more detailed instruction on how to insert the ioperm command? When I download the whole cygwin thing from the download source it seem gigantic. Do I need all this?

HI,

these are the steps:

1. execute setup.exe from cygwin folder + Next
2. Install from Local Directory + Next
3. In Root Directory Box: C:\cygwin (the default folder) + next
4. In the Local Package Directory box specify the directory where you have saved the CYGWIN Folder (leave the default) + next
5. In select package windows expand DEVEL and click on the work "skip" in the same line where there is IOPERM + Next
6. Unselect icons on desktop and start menu and finish.
7. Run cygwin.bat from folder c:\cygwin
8. In the cygwin windows type “ioperm –i” + enter and “exit” + enter
9. move hsect-2.1\hsect2.exe and move it to c:\cygwin\bin

Hi,

thanks a lot for your work! It is excellent!

I have installed XP Tablet Pc Edition 2005, I have not used this point:

6.- run TabletPC_PatchXPproSP2.exe, it will extract files to C:\temp,
Go to C:\temp and run step1.reg,
Run Step2.bat
Leave it alone until de hard disk stops and reboot

For this point I have restarted the PC with recovery console for copy correctly the file:

18.- copy HTC Shift XP Drivers\WLAN\sdbus.sys to c:\windows\system32\drivers\ say yes to the replace dialog and reboot.



One issue:

after I have installed all the drivers I have tried to install a Bluetooth mouse....the installation is finished ok...the mouse works...but I cannot use the touchscreen...
I have reinstalled the touch driver....all works ok...but at next reboot touch stop working...

ioperm...

thank you, sensa, for your quick reply.
When I type the command "ioperm -i" into the cygwin window I get this:
"ioperm.sys is already installed. StartService function call failed."
Any idea?
