Windows 7 downgrade to Windows XP HP110-3101
As the title says, I am trying to downgrade a HP110-3101 netbook (17 need to be done) from Windows 7 to Windows XP.
Unfortunately the drivers (from the HP site) for the ICH7R/DH SATA AHCI that are required for the XP install do not work in the text setup part of XP. The text setup part of XP insists that the hardware selected is not in the netbook.
In fact, I've tried every option that the text mode setup driver gives and still no luck.
I've also tried the latest drivers for the controller from the Intel site - same issue.
I've tried older drivers they cause the same issue briefly then cause a stop BSOD.
I've done the sensible thing and spoken to HP (no help) and I'm in the process of contacting Intel.
Thanks for reading, any (sensible) suggestion are welcomed gratefully.
