Additional Windows Vista SP1 driver information for the Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo LA Notebook (Laptop)
Additionally, Windows update will not offer Windows Vista SP1 to Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo LA 1703 Notebooks that have a BIOS release date of March 14, 2008 or earlier. This corresponds to Bios Revision numbers 8.6T1-0023-M007 or earlier. This block reflects an incorrect power management setting that will be resolved in an updated BIOS revision. For more information, visit the following Fujitsu-Siemens support site:
Downloads - Support - Fujitsu Siemens Computers
Select Notebooks and AMILO La 1703. An updated BIOS (8.6 or a later version) will be posted soon.
So if you have any of these drivers you will not get SP1 to install. Will have to either disable the drivers or find a updated version.
