Problem with installing drivers

Hi everyone, I dual booted my computer with Windows 7 and Windows XP and right now Im trying to reinstall all the drivers I had o nwindows 7 to windows xp. However im starting to wonder if thats even possible? I tried to install the intel extreme graphics driver to windows xp and it doesnt seem to work at all. Is there realy no way to install my drivers on windows XP?

Probably the Windows 7 driver is not compatible with the XP driver. Did you look around for a XP driver?

Welcome to SF, WilliamSinclair. Please complete your system specs.

Just to make sure, you're not installing the same drivers for both Win 7 and XP, right?

When dual booting you should always keep a folder for Windows 7 drivers and a seperate folder for Win XP drivers as they do not interchange.
