Installing XP on a HP dv2600

  1. Alright, so i've spent hours on google and have tried everything to "downgrade" my laptop from windows vista premium to windows xp.
    Like everybody else that has tried doing this, i encounter this message after rebooting my computer with the XP cd and hitting enter to install xp: "setup did not find any hard disk drives installed...."
    i found out that i'd have to make a new boot disc using some program called nlite. However, i would need the drivers for my hard drive, which are close to impossible to find. It is a seagate st9160821as 160GB driver.

    hp dv2600
    Nvidia 8400
    2 gigs ram

    does anyone know where i can find the driver for my hard drive or have any solutions to my problem? thanks
