SOURCE: XP on HP Pavilion dv2000
First of all, this Notebook is installed with SATA Hard Drive and the drivers for the SATA Hard Drive will not be available with retail versions of Windows XP by default.
I recommend you to try using different OEM versions of XP to install in your Notebook which should work.
Since the Notebook is preinstalled with Windows Vista, the XP Drivers for this Notebook are not directly available from HP.
I had searched some for you which should work.
Download the Drivers one after the other and save them with the name along with the Softpaq Number like the example given below :
So that it will be easier for you to save them and identify.
Save the drivers in one location in the Notebook and double click them once the download is completed.
Make sure that you install the Microsoft UAA Drivers before installing the Audio or Modem Drivers.
Make sure that you install them in the same order I had provided them below :
You need to download the Intel Chipset Drivers for your Notebook from the link below :
Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture(UAA) drivers for High Definition audio :
Conexant High Definition(HD) audio :
As the Notebook is installed with Intel graphic Card, you need to download the Drivers for the same from the link below :
Download the Ricoh 5-in-one Card Reader Driver from the link below :
Download Intel PRO/Wireless Drivers from the below weblink:
As I am not sure whether your Notebook is installed with Intel or Realtek Ethernet card, I am providing both the drivers:
Intel Ethernet Drivers :
Realtek Ethernet Drivers :
You can also try downloading the Marvel Youcon Ethernet Drivers if any of the above provided drivers did not work :
Downlaod Conexant HDAUDIO Soft Data Fax Modem drivers from the below weblink :
Download the HP Quick Launch Buttons drives from the below weblink:
Download the HP Pavilion Webcam Driver from the below weblink:
Download the Alps Touchpad driver from the below weblink:
Finger Print Reader Driver :
Hope these helps...
