ACPI\ MAT0021 Driver

I was installing Windows 7 on a Panasonic CF-F8 laptop computer when I had a missing driver with a hardware id of "ACPI\MAT0021". Turns out it's the Panasonic Misc Driver.
  1. To install go to: http://pc-dl.panasonic.co.jp/itn/support/win7info2_f8w8t8.html 
  2. Scroll down to Operating Systems and Others
  3. Download the Pansonic Misc Driver (at this time it is ver. 1.2.1100.0)
  4. Once it's downloaded, run the file and the drivers will be placed in C:\util2\drivers\newmisc
  5. Go to Hardware Manager, choose to manually update the drivers and give it the path listed in the previous step
  6. Driver installs correctly!
This should work with Vista as well. If this helped you out please let me know!
