Vista to XP Downgrade Compaq/ HP F700/G6000/DV6900/DV6700/DVx7xx/DV9800 Series Laptop


GUIDELINES

Please read the following:
I have a list of compiled drivers for the Compaq Presario/HP F700/G6000,DV6900/DV6700/x7xx and DV9800 series laptops with an AMD Processor ONLY. These drivers have been used "Successfully" to downgrade these laptops from Vista to XP.

I must warn you. This is for informational purpose only. TSF will not be held liable for any problems that may result in using the following procedures. These procedures may also result in voiding any warranty you may have with HP, Compaq or its affiliates.

I would highly recommend that you make a backup of your Vista OS.

BACKUP ANY DATA YOU WISH TO SAVE!

Imaging the drive (Vista OS) will allow you to return to Vista easily. This program is free and is easy to use.
Drive Image:
http://www.runtime.org/driveimage-xml.htm

You may wish to run EVEREST or PC Wizard to determine the Hardware installed on your laptop prior to installing these drivers. A link to these programs is located under my signature.

You will need a zip program to extract many of these drivers to a folder.
I prefer WIN.RAR here:
http://www.download.com/WinRAR/3000-...-10007677.html

I would also recommend you BURN these drivers to CD for a backup.

I have also included instructions as to how these drivers should be installed. Do not skip around to try and install these drivers. They must be installed in the order given. If you run into a problem STOP and post it to a thread.

Install XP (XP SP2 recomended) to your laptop and select your series!

1394 Controller: This is Only if you have an error in the Device Manager that shows OHCI COMPLIANT IEEE 1394 HOST CONTROLLER.
This is not a driver issue it is a XP/BIOS incompatibility issue.
Most people have resolved this issue by DOWNGRADING the Bios to F.28:
