Default Windows Vista To Windows Xp..

I have a HP PAVILION ELITE m9150f and I called Hp and I wanted to switch it to Windows XP, it came with Vista.

When I have Windows Xp installed it askes for the following drivers:

802.11 b/g WLAN
Beanbag Emulation Device
Ethernet Controller
PCI Device
PCI Simple Communications Controller
SM Bus Controller

I cannot find these drivers for ex anywheres. If someone can find them for me that would be great!

Thanks.

Default Re: Windows Vista To Windows Xp..

Hm.. Most computers will have a supplied CD that's labeled as "Drivers/Software" bundled with the computer. I know it can be a pain in the arse talking to tech support, but did they suggest where you might be able to find it?

Also, take a look at the HP website. They might have driver package downloads for you.


EDIT: Here we go, here's a list of all the drivers for your computer. HOWEVER, keep in mind that these are Vista drivers. I have no idea if these will be compatible with a copy of XP on that computer.

Also, they don't even mention XP as an OS for this system. It is quite possible that there are no drivers/support for it as an immediate solution from HP.

Find out who manufactured the motherboard, what chipset it is, and make a little visit to their website. In all likelihood there is a set of XP drivers.

I had to work with an eMachines that was preloaded with Vista, and eMachine's website only had Vista drivers for download.

I fired up CPU-Z, found out who made the motherboard, what chipset it was, and got some XP drivers. Now it runs XP with no problems.
