      I have installed Windows 2008 64bits on my new computer.

      My motherboard Asus (P5QPro) has an application named “Express Gate” that permits to boot very quickly on a Linux operating systems.

      I have downloaded the Express Gate application for Vista 64bits. I can install it successfully (but directly from the “ST_ASUSEG00_HD_v1.3.3.1_20080815.exe” file and not the AsusSetup.exe file).

      During the installation I have an InstallShield error message which displayed only “rename” message. I dont know what it means but the installation can completed “successfully”.

      Finally, when I reboot the computer, I’am still unable to launch the Express Gate Operating System.

      One of you has managed to let asus Express Gate working ?

      Thank you

      I run a P6T Deluxe ASUS motherboard. All you need to do is add the OS Tag to the AsusSetup.inf and the AsusSetup64.inf. The tag should read “WNT_6.0I_64 = Vista64” (it tells the installer that the tag it encounters “WNT_6.0I_64” is Vista 64 instead of Windows 2008).

      Also, the ExpressGate image is on the motherboard. You do need to go into the BIOS to activate the option, if you’ve changed the default BIOS settings. Then you need to select it when you boot up (you’ll usually see a big ASUS splash screen) if you want to boot into ExpressGate instead of Windows or whatever. It doesn’t run within the OS; the ExpressGate application you’re referring to is just to update the ExpressGate image on the motherboard, the way you would apply a BIOS update.

      It works fine other then the fact that you cannot access the file structure for s2008.

      However he had no trouble setting it up. It was ridiculously easy. You must enable it in BIOS and if the mouse and stuff does not work, you must select the BIOS to handle the hardware instead of the OS.

      Disable “plug-n-play OS” setting in BIOS.

      Hi and thanks for your answers !

      It seems that Express Gate cannot work with RAID configuration so, even with Vista, it seems that it is not possible :-/
