Installing XP on an HP Pavillion dv9074cl

  1. I have an HP Pavillion dv9074cl which I bought with no OS. It came with 2 100 GB sata HDs. I am trying to install Windows XP Pro but it requires raid drivers before it can "see" the HDs. I have an external USB floppy drive so that's not an issue, but I have not been able to find drivers that work. Help?

    This doesn't sound right... All you should need is the Nvidia Chipset driver for the hard drive controller. You might need other XP drivers like video, modem, network and such...
