Hi again,

My live xp has hit the wall on a new laptop I need to use it on.

Basically starts loading and BSOD with "Video Card Failed to Initialise".
I'm using WB 080 and the hardware is a HP Elitebook 8460 with core i5. I expect the Live-xp might not be able to handle the onboard grpahics or something?
Thanks chaps

Every "integrated" (having several functions) or discrete chipset soldered on or attached to any of shipped with your PC or Laptop internal boards, or ever added by you must be supported by its own driver to work. So, 1st thing check your laptop specs, and make sure your LiveXP has corresponding GPU drivers installed for HP Elitebook 8460 graphics chipset. Another thing is to consider running more up-to-date PC Service Tools, like a ThinPC VHD booted from USB, which allows to auto install GPU and other drivers and add tools of your choice.
