    I have an ATI RADEON X1300 PRO and am attempting to install its
    drivers, however, I am receiving "INF Error". I am attempting to
    install on Windows XP Pro. I don't know how to get past this error. Has
    anyone seen this before? Any suggestions welcome. Thanks.

    bad driver download? download newest ones from ati site, run drivercleaner
    to make sure there is no old drivers left

    No, this is a clean install. First time the drivers (of any kind) have
    ever seen the system. I thought perhaps it might have been because I
    failed to install .NET v2. I tried that, and still no luck. I'll try
    driver cleaner just in case something made its way into the system
    prior to the .NET resolution. Thanks.

    run: sfc /scannow- that'll check the integrity of the windows files. you
    will need your xp cd

    Running... Wow that took a long time. SFC finished without a peep.

    The note in the ATI setup stated that it could not find a VGA adapter.
    I'm not sure what this means, however, reviewing Device Manager, there
    seems to be a couple of displays, one which is VGA the other which has
    nothing. I don't know is this is related to anything or just happy

    Anyway, any other ideas?

    You know, I'm scanning through the [ATI.Mfg] and [ATI.Mfg.NTX86]
    sections... Now, I'm not an INF programmer, however, I do not see X1300
    represented anywhere in the driver list. Would this cause an issue
    during installation? Don't know. I'm really at a loss as to why the
    driver won't install, even after cleaning. I'll try cleaning in safe
    mode and see if that helps it at all.

    Boot up pressing F8 just after the bios boot, then select "Enable VGA Mode".
    This loads the VGA driver into the system, now install the ATI drivers.

    Hmm, okay. I didn't know this was an option. I will give this a try.

    This did not work. I selected the option to Enable VGA mode and still
    it did not work. Inspection of my Display Adapter after this still
    showed no adapter associated with the display. Should I be installing
    in safe mode? At this point I am very nearly resigned to believe that
    the X1300 is a component that is unsupported from Windows XP Pro. Can
    anyone second this motion?

    uninstall and then reinstall the card, to check it is seated properly. This
    may be why device manager isnt reporting the primary and secondary together-
    does the card require a power input off the psu?

    I mean to remove the card from mainboard and put it back in again

  13. This did not work. I selected the option to Enable VGA mode and still
    I encountered a similar error. I ended up using the WinXP SP2 CD to
    repair the WinXP installation first.
