This should be aviable on the CD that came with the system, Check your manufactures page to see if they have a downgrade cd aviable since most companies now offer this. In case there is then you can download the drivers from the manufactures web page and put it on a floppy so you can use it .. (win XP will tell you to press F6 to install 3rd party drivers. You may also try www.driverguide.com or you can use certin software like driver magician to find and download them for you..

Downgrade to XP


Looks like they do not have very many drivers listed for XP on their site, but all of them (obviously) for Vista. I would recommend you not downgrade to XP with that particular laptop. Sorry!

Vista to xp on hp dv7 1175nr


I apologize and I hate to be the one to tell you this but especially with HP Laptops (considering the fact I have a HP Pavilion DV 9535 w/ Vista Home Premium) I asked a HP representative if i could downgrade to Windows XP and the HP representative had told me this they're are driver's out there but you need to go threw each and every manufactor manually and find the driver for each product with your computer, because HP and Microsoft are not going to support it anymore. They are supportive of Windows Vista Operating systems now, and I am always honest and really all they want is your money. If you want I can get together with you over via phone and assist you with finding the driver's you may call my office at 1-978-878-0014 Ext. 182 and I will be more than happy to assist you with this. Is there anything else you need help with?

Cannot install Windows XP,Vista on Compaq Laptop(FreeDos) V3607TU.


I have two solutions for this problem. the first one is to change the bios settings. the solution is here:  http://techrena.blogspot.com/2008/10/how-to-install-your-own-wndows-xp-in-hp.html
but for some laptops this setting is not available. so you can try another solution i.e. integrate the SATA drivers in your windows XP cd. this solution is here: http://techrena.blogspot.com/2009/01/integrate-your-own-drivers-or.html

Xp professional installation on hp pavilion dv6700 cto notebook


The original Windows XP Installation CD, a freeware application named NLite and a blank CD.
we need the drivers for the SATA controller provided by the manufacturer.

When you start the Nlite application, you will be asked to provide the location for the Windows installation package. Insert the genuine Windows Installation CD into the CD drive and, inside the application, select the CD drive letter.
To insert the SATA drivers within the installation package, you need to have it saved on the HDD. Hence, when the warning window appears click OK and select the destination folder for the files to be saved. Make sure that the destination partition / HDD has enough space to store the contents of the installation CD.

Immediately after you have chosen the destination folder, the application will start copying the Windows installation files. When finished, it will display some version information regarding the newly copied Windows Installation Package.
Now, click next twice until you get to a screen where you get options sorted in 4 categories: Integrate, Remove, Setup, Create. We are interested in the integration procedure, therefore select the Drivers button and click next. From the next menu window, click Import and select multiple drive folder option from the drop down menu. This option permits you to browse to the location where the downloaded drivers are found.
Select the containing directory and click next. You will get a list with the available drivers (in case there are more than one) or simply one driver. Select it (them) and click next. Now the application will ask for the permission to start the integration procedure. Choose Yes and wait for the drivers to be inserted into the installation package.
With problematic driver being included in the installation package you can install Windows XP on your SATA HDD...but...the installation package is on the HDD. You need a bootable CD in order to start an installation. Don't worry, once the installation package has been adorned with additional user selected drivers it can be transformed into a bootable disk image and later burned on a CD. To encapsulate the installation into a ISO image use the same Nlite application.
Open it, make sure the HDD installation folder is selected and click next. Select "Last session" preset and click next again. Now from the options menu choose Bootable ISO and click next. In the following window, make sure that the mode is set to "Create Image" and click Make ISO. A destination folder is required where the resulting ISO image will be saved. Once the image saving process finished you have the freedom to burn it on a blank CD with whatever you favorite CD burner software may be.

The new CD will be the twin copy of the Windows Installation CD but with one difference, it includes the SATA driver

How to install driver in preinstalled vista in notebook OR download xp driver


No vista drivers will not be supported. Recently i did the same thing and ran into troube getting back to vista. Your best bet is to download software updates that are compatible with vista, most things are now. Or if you want to install something if you right click the intall file first and got to properties, then compatibility and change it ro run in xp sp2, apply, ok. see if this helps
