My Installation notes:
Have USB keyboard ready as you will need it ones.
Plug in dvd or usb stick with W7 media on it.
Open BIOS, choose your media as first boot drive.. boot from it.
Continue with Windows installer.. You can use S5's joystick as mouse and OK key as left click by pressing menu key for few seconds. You need to unplug the DVD drive or USB stick to enter your name with USB keyboard... just swap back after typing.
Drivers and software:
All drivers are XP drivers from Viliv..
Install Atom IO Control first.. Device manager.. Action.. Add legacy hardware .. point to location.
Install S5 System software... Reboot later..
Install touch screen drivers.. Device manager.. Ps2 Mouse.. point to location.. choose Vista driver and reboot.
Copy Viliv Manager to desktop, run it and enable Wifi with it. Wifi driver instal fails.. go to Device manager.. SD8686 on network adapters.. Update driver.. point to location..
Start windows update, pick Intel graphics and Wifi on optional updates.. install.. wait...
Install chipset drivers.. with XP compatible as administrator.
Install USB Client drivers.. with XP compatible as administrator.
Enable bluetooth from Viliv manager.. drivers install automatically
Install GPS drivers.. Device manager.. Action.. Add legacy hardware .. point to location.
All drivers seems working fine and there has been no real issues other than a bit slow operation time to time.
It's really bad from Microsoft that they don't understand that we would like to use full tablet features on touch devices too... a simple "enable all tablet features" would be super...
