    Hi there

    i have to install - for special testing purposes - windows pe on an tablet with an ATOM Z3795. This means this devices should use the Intel HD Graphics 4000/2500 driver. I´ve injected the Intel driver but it seems it isn´t used.

    After booting my pe-stick the Tablet is using the Microsoft Basic Display driver and haves 1920x1200 as one and only resolution

    Now i would like to reduce the resolution, but with setres.exe i get "are not supported by your video device"

    I understand that a very/too high resolution/refresh rate may harm my screen - but why can´t i run a lower than the maximal resolution???

    I also found the Display1_DownScalingSupported-Registy key, but this key doesnt exist under PE.

    What to do now?
