Question 3g modem (5530) not working in stripped win 7 - 08-10-2009, 02:47 AM

Heya all,
just got my mini 9 last friday and been busy modding and prepping it love the size and all.
First of all I stripped xp of and istalled 7, soooo nice with all working right out the box. Then I found someone had posted a very stripped down version on win 7 that would hardly use any space. ( I got my mini "free" through vodafone nz, so only a 8gb ssd inside). I installed that and yeah, hardly takes any space..but there is one problem with it. The 5530 installs perfectly fine and all but neither VMC or the Dell/Ericsson WAM recognize it ;/ Is there anyone who knows what could be the cause? right now I'm toying with my own vlited 7 install and hope I can get it working in the meantime till I find out what's wrong.
thx for the help

Check device manager to make sure all drivers are installed. You may have a problem with the Smartcard(SIM) driver not automatically installing and need to do a forced driver update on it. I had that problem with my Windows 7 on both my Mini and my Studio XPS 16, or possibly you removed a component that it needed and can not find.
