R500-missing drivers [SM-bus controller and basic system unit]

Hello!


I just installed WinXP on an R500 - this comes pre-installed with Vista, but it should support XP. (2716-CTO) The problems starts when I try to search it up on the driver-base, 2716-CTO turns back with "Product not found".

I managed to download drivers for ethernet, wifi, gfx etc. via listing "all models" under R500, but still no drivers for the SM-bus controller and 'Basic system unit' (norwegian: Grunnleggende systemenhet)

Any suggestions?

 

Regards,
Henrik, Alta Kommune

That link does nothing and I can't find anything available for a ThinkPad R500 built for Windows 7. I need the Fingerprint sensor, PCI Simple Communication Controller, Network Controller, and severla base system device drivers. Why does it tell me my Serial number is Null and will not provide me any drivers.
