What are the unknown devices in XP on the MacBook Pro?  

This article was written when Boot Camp had limited device driver support and is now therefore out of date.

Apple’s BootCamp provides the majority of drivers required including the elusive ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 driver however there are a few devices without official drivers. These are;

Apple Remote/IR Receiver

Described as: USB Human Interface Device
Identification: USB\VID_05AC&PID_8240\5&11730951&0&2 (05AC 8240)
Attached to: Intel 82801G USB Universal Host Controller – 27CA > USB Root Hub
Status: Seems unlikely Apple will deliver a driver but should be easy for a third party.

Apple iSight Camera

Described as: USB Human Interface Device
Identification: USB\VID_05AC&PID_8300\5&7A1792C&0&4 (05AC 8300)
Attached to: Intel 82801G USB2 Enhanced Host Controller – 27CC > USB Root Hub
Status: Apple will probably deliver a driver but if not should be a standard imaging chip (Micron).

Trusted Platform Module

Described as: Unknown device
Identification: ACPI\IFX0101\1 (IFX0101)
Attached to: Intel 82801GBM LPC Interface Controller – 27B9
Status: You can grab the Infineon TPM package from Intel’s web site – but who wants it?

Intel Hardware Monitoring

Described as: PCI Device
Identification: PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_27A3&SUBSYS_00000000&REV_03\3&B1BFB68&0&38 (8086 27A3)
Attached to: PCI bus 0, device 7, function 0
Status: Either Intel or Apple should deliver a driver but probably simple for a third party.

Keyboard back light?

Described as: Unknown device
Identification: ACPI\APP0002\A (APP0002)
Attached to: ACPI
Status: Apple might deliver a device but again if not a third party shouldn’t find it that tricky.
