My real pain with all this is that photoshop cs2 does'nt work - processor maxs out! Is this related or is this another issue with this processor?
Same problem with Mitac 8355 (using InSyde 1.09 "Mobile" BIOS) and release version of Vista Ultimate (IA-32). My workaround solution was to use a 3rd-party RMClock CPU tool. Athlon 64 @1.8Ghz should have a Vista CPU score around ~3.7 (I used secondary reference from a working MSI 635 Turion 64 @1.8Ghz laptop).
You may have to set the multipliers and voltages manually.
For bypassing Vista start-up blocker nag, use "Task Scheduler" (in "Accessories"->"System Tools") to start RMClock.
In "General" tab, select Administrators group (used as an example) and tick "Run with highest privileges".
Set triggers "At log on".
Set Action "Start a program" e.g. C:\Program Files\RMClock\RMClock.exe -profile 3
In Conditions tab, make sure that the tick boxes for Power group are unticked.
I prefer AMD to provide a CPU driver for Vista i.e. for deployment.
PS; Mitac already gave up supporting Vista for Mitac 8355.
