Not a big Vista fan? [Me neither]. Not a problem - I'll help you find most of these pesky drivers for XP, which HP is too lazy to provide.
After fresh Windows XP install (I'd recommend start with XP CD with SP2 or 3 Built in):
- INF Update Utility to properly identify all system components.
- Then Video drivers for Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500M.
- Network Card
- UAA driver for HD Audio and Modem
- Conexant HD Audio Modem driver [old one here] - My helpful readers suggested a different audio driver which worked better for them – Get it here and if bugs you for login/password try this page [ I’ll try to arrange for a different mirror tomorrow]
P.S: I received some responses about problems with audio. I’d like to hear your comments how did it worked out for you or not.
