Windows 7 compatible PCI Serial port drivers for M57p (6088) ThinkCentre

On the weekend I upgraded my Lenovo M57p (model 6088) to Windows 7 and encountered the problem in which the drivers for the following were not installed and couldn't be located ....

 

PCI Simple Communications Controller

PCI Serial Port

 

The problem here is that the AMT drivers available to resolve this problem are only compatible for PCs operating on Windows Vista, XP or 2000 but do not go as far to cover the problem created in Windows 7 ....

 

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-73601

 

Can anyone suggest what I can do to resolve this?

 

I have noticed that Lenovo have available beta versions of such drivers for the Thinkpads but for some reason no such drivers are available for the ThinkCentres.

 

I dont understand this as I'm certain this will be a significant problem when others go to upgrade to Windows 7 .......

 

Does anyone know when Lenovo plan to release Windows 7 compatible AMT drivers for the ThinkCentres????

 

Really need the help as my PCI and PCIe ports dont work, hence my soundcard .... :smileysad:

Hi

 

You have a AMT 3.x based system.

Update your BIOS to latest level

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-68829.html

 

Then update AMT Firmware - then deal with AMT drivers

 

Intel(R) Management Engine Firmware Update Tool 3.2.10.1041 - ThinkCentre M57, M57p
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-73601

 

I suggest to have a look at this:

Intel blog - regarding AMT drivers

http://communities.intel.com/community/openportit/vproexpert/blog/2009/11/13/windows-7-and-vpro--any...

 

Quote:

"official AMT Windows 7 drivers will be available by OEMs in Q1 of 2010 (for now use compatability mode)"

 

Try a compatibility install of the Lenovo Vista driver package for AMT, as described in the Intel blog.

 

This package installs AMT components

- Local Manageability Service (LMS)
- Serial Over LAN (SOL) driver
- Intel AMT Status application

Please report results

Cheers

Hey, I had the same problem, and just kept messing around until I found something that worked for Both the PCI Serial as well as PCI Comm Controller. I uploaded the drivers that I used to my site.

http://reconcept.net/IBMDrivers.zip

 

Download and unpak to C:\drivers (or whereever), then go into dev mgr, and choose to install from spec location, then browse to the unpaked zip file, and it will find and install.

 

Thanks,

 

Jon
