SOURCE: operating system
first of all you will have to format your laptop cause when you have vista u cant install xp with it
u will have to install xp first and then install vista
about the driver u will have to do some settings in cmos setup and will have to change hdd type
that will solve your driver problem
so first install xp and then install vista
regarding drivers for xp u will have to visit hp website and chat with a online technical person and ask him to mail you the link for drivers for xp

1 - Place CD in the Drive
2 - Restart PC and go into Bios by pressing Del, F2 or whatever instruction the start up screen says.
3 - Go to Boot configuration and set it to Boot from CD
4 - Save and Exit
5 - Follow onscreen instructions untill you get to the Windows install screen.
6 - You may have to create a partition (Drive Letter) on your hard drive if nothing was there before, you can assign as much hard drive space as you want to this. If your not sure just use all the space available. This will be your C drive.
7 - Pick the drive you just created and install windows on it using the on screen menu. It will ask you if to format the drive, say yes and use NTFS not FAT as NTFS has more features.
8 - Just say yes to all questions asked after this point.
When windows is installed it will ask you for a CD key and to activate by going on the net, I'm afraid I can't help you with this.
