  1. I have an HP Pavilion Desktop PC with Vista Home os,
    and want to downgrade to xp.
    I need the drivers for the SATA controller (could't find them for my specific model)
    to add them to the Windows installation cd using NLite.
    Could you please help me finding the original or compatible drivers?

    Thanks for your quick reply!
    Are the Pavilion & Pavilion the same model?

    Sorry for my ignorance :eek:

    I got this answer from Hp phorum:

    "No, the has Intel 945G Chipset/ICH7 controller.
    The has Intel G33 Chipset/ICH9 controller."

    Now I know I'm lost regarding the drivers...:confused:
