    xp on macbook


      i have an INTEL macbook. want to run windows XP on it & it needs lots of individual device drivers. have successfully found and installed some device drivers but seems i have not been successful with the soundcard driver.


      here are the specs of the macbook:

      CPU type - Mobile DualCore Intel Core Duo T2500, 2000 MHz (12 x 167)

      Motherboard chipset - Mobile Intel Calistoga-GM i945GM

      Memory - 2 x 1GB 667Mhz DDR2 SDRAM

      HDD - 250GB 7200rpm SATA-II


      these are the devices and its status:

      video card - intel GMA 950 / Mobile 945GM/GU Express Integrated Graphics Controller - now working

      LAN port - Marvell Yukon 88E8053 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller - now working

      USB 2.0 port - Intel 82801GBM ICH7-M - USB Universal Host Controller [B-0] - now working

      camera - i-sight - now working

      DVD-RW superdrive – now working, using NERO 8

      Firewire port - OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 Host Controller – now working

      wifi – airport express - Atheros AR5006X 802.11abg Wireless NIC – now working

      sound card - SigmaTel STAC9220 A1 @ Intel 82801GBM ICH7-M - High Definition Audio Controller [B-0] - still doesn't work

      keyboard functions - ? the fn + page-up/page-down key doesn't work

      trackpoint - ? the two finger scroll key doesn't work

      bluetooth - ?

      infra red controller - ?


      my main interest is to have the soundcard working on XP-SP3. have downloaded and installed the SigmaTel STAC9220 A1 & the Intel 82801GBM ICH7-M chipset controller driver individually but still doesnt work. have tried to search intel support for the motherboard but theres no available driver for the set.


      what shud i do... pls advise
