I see the file but when I point it and press the OK button it gives me the same error message before finishing the installer:
"Cannot install this hardware
There was a problem installing this hardware:
Cirrus Logic CS4206A (AB 32)
An error occured during the installation of the device
The parameter is incorrect."
I'm doing it exactly like you said... what should I do?
Is there a way to reset the process? And try starting over?
well well well
maybe you pointed me to the solution: "4206A (AB 32)"
please try to download and install this driver (click "agree" at the bottom).
if it works, i'll update my archive with this driver.
thanks for letting me know.
For the imac 2011 21.5", the drivers are certainly different.
You can try. It may work for some hardware.
For the knowledge:
- Bootcamp 3.0 + 3.1 + 3.2 provide XP / VISTA / 7 (?) drivers for every imac With Core2 Duo / Quad processors (before 2010)
- Bootcamp 4 provides 7 drivers only.
Unfortunately i don't have any 21.5" 2011 imac to look for drivers.
under Lion, if you can provide the name and tech info of every hardware that is not installed under XP, i may be able to help you... (read the current thread to get more informations)
First thing, install Bootcamp 3.0 and updates 3.1 and 3.2
After, from what i can see, you may try to install some drivers from my archive:
- chipset sandy bridge (dble click on infinst_autol.exe)
- facetime camera HD: Try manual install by pointing to the directory (i'm pretty sure it's the same hardware).
- the audio may install also fine...
- the hdmi audio is part of the graphics card and whould also install. Try manual install by pointing to the directory.
also you could try manual install on the LAN and WLAN adapters ("ethernet" and "controller di rete")
After that, the idea is to try every unknown hardware with every driver remaininig : right click > update pilot > choose by yourself > browse and point to each driver directory. If XP recognizes a compatible driver, it will install it.
Once you have tried every hardware remaining with every driver remaining,
- tell me what's remaining
- please click on "resoconto di sistema" under LION and paste the informations here.
We need more info about your hardware (graphics card, etc).
Ok, but i can't find bootcamp 3.0. I only found the 3.1 and 3.2 update. I read in the other discussions that it's in the snow leopard DVD, but when i mount it, windowsxp tell me that windows 7 is required to install bootcamp.
Is bootcamp 3 and 3.1 and 3.2 necessary? The only peripherals that i need is:
audio system (what's is HDMI audio? It works in winxp? )
The other peripherals are not necessary for me:
Yesterday i sucessfully installed chipset and LAN. After that I'm stopped because i couldn't install the audio system. I think that the PCI-Device that you see in this picture http://i42.tinypic.com/282qmn4.jpg is the audio system.
Sorry for my bad english... I'm italian
You can get Bootcamp 3.0 on the OSX 10.6 CD.
If you don't have the 10.6 CD, you can download bootcamp 3 here.
(click on "download with waiting" for each link). Total 1gb.
BTW, I have updated my archive with a new driver for a Memory Stick reader that my XP suddenly found (i think it's a new hardware created after a bios update)... http://egaille.free.fr/imac27
I used your drivers and didn't have any issues except for the VGA. I tried to force the drivers in XP but get a message that it "Cannot Install this Hardware" I have the same Radeon Graphics adapter as you do (Radeon HD 6770M. I have also downloaded the Catalyst software (version 12.3) from AMD and tried to force the drivers but still cannot get it to work.
Is there something I'm missing or doing incorrectly? I know BootCamp doesn't support XP, but I'm so close to getting everything working. Thanks for all the posts, they have helped tremendously.
