    * help with correct driver for ich9r chipset to install XP *

    Benjy

      hey people,

       

      I have a HP pavilion M9265 pc. it came with Vista. I am trying to install XP on my spare Sata hard drive. after some research on the net, i understand it will not work withour a driver for the motherboard.

       

      so I need to locate the driver for my mother board. Its an intel 82801IR (ich9r) chipset. i thought i had the correct driver form the intel site..

      http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&ProductID=2101&DwnldID=15599&strOSs=44&OSFullName=Windows*%20XP%20Professional&lang=eng

      ....but its not working so i dont think i do. I dont have a floppy drive so i am using Nlite to add the driver to my XP installation, then burn it on a new disc.

       

      is anyone able to point me in the right direction as i am struggling.

       

      Thanks,

      Benjy
