But to give you an idea of how much trouble XP is to install, let's look at HP's response to drivers at link.
I hope you are ready for that much pain.
Why not use the machine's restore media?
From XP pro device manager I have yellow question marks with !
The devices are 1. Mass Storage controller 2. SM Bus Controller
3. Video Controller (VGA compatible)
Have tried to uninstall then reboot only to see them all reappear unfixed.
Have inserted the Windows XP CD disk, messages says cant find software.
No internet in that laptop. Internet ok on other machines.
