HP/Compaq only shipped this motherboard in systems with Windows Vista installed. No XP drivers exist that I'm aware of unless you can get XP drivers from the respective chipset companies.

Windows XP should automatically detect the hard drive. There should be no reason for a driver, however software to format and backup your drive can be found at Maxtor. It is important to format the drive before it is used.

Installed 500 gig drive with Windows XP. Computer only recognizes it as 127 gig.

You need to go to your computer manufacturers support-driver site and look your model up, then put in your operating system and search for drivers. In the drivers column, you need to find the download for an updated BIOS. Download this file and run its self-executable program and flash your systems BIOS. The new BIOS will allow your system to see large hard drives...right now your system has a limit of 132 GB.

I need a driver download for a hitachi hard drive model HDP725050GLA360 where can i find one?

Current operating systems, including Windows 7, Vista, XP and 2000, and Mac OS X, already include pre-installed drivers for the hard disk drive itself. No additional drivers are required.

If your system is requesting drivers, you may need current versions of your controller or motherboard drivers. To obtain the most current controller or motherboard driver, go to the respective manufacturer website.

How do i instal drivers for my graphic card on laptop toshiba portege 4010.operating sistem is xp

You need to find the full model number to download the driver, but you can either do it on the laptop or another computer and transfer it to a thumb drive. Should be in an executable file or compressed folder. XP can open both using windows explorer by double-clicking.

Change Vista to xp

hello, Yes I think so because if you have a new computer you gonna get problem to find your sata driver when you trying to install your XP, also you need to search and install the drivers manually and that can be hard if you dont have a other computer with network access to Internet. Its the easiast way to get your computer to XP. if you had the restore cds to your computer it should be easy to recovery your computer to XP.

good luck.
