not sure about it

my friend just got 6 workstations
HP Z210 Workstation
in his company environment he have an application only works with Windows XP

he asked me to come over and uninstall Windows 7 .. the default OS
and install XP for him to let that application works and to make his CEO satisfied with XP

my guessing now is

i found the Drivers of XP Here x86 and x64 which makes me feel ok that the machine will be compatible with the windows xp

but am not sure if am going to face the setup boot problem in this case of HP Z210 Workstation and if i do........ then i don't think this way works because there is no floppy reader in that machine ... and i noticed that the machine has SATA HDD

if this problem occur what should i do ? any suggests ? please

thank you

Hi
From what I can find on the Workstations, there come with Windows Vista Business.
Therefore you can use the Windows XP Pro Downgrade DVD to reinstall. No drivers needed.

New to site,very nice!


I am running into a problem trying to add WindowsXP. I get through the partioning OK. But when I try to install WinXP after the intial setup by windows I get a Blue-Screen with the following message:
Stop: 0X0000007E (0X0000005, 0XF78D1EA0, 0XF78D1B9C)
acpi.sys-Address F73B9D66 base at F73AE000, Date Stamp 480252b1
I never get to the actual windows setup.

I have problem like above. So do I have to choose sata driver for xp or win 7? There is no data drivers in hp websites.Sorry but I am a new bee,May be its very stupid questions but thanks a lot.
Yes, you will need to download the SATA drivers for Win XP.

Which Sata controller do you have?
I have no idea which sata controller I have? how can I know that and there is no sata driver even nothing driver for xp for my laptop (hp Pavilion dv 7 3013 eo ) only vista and win7.
You could look in your win 7 on that laptop and discover the hardware used there. Devices lists the controller. Alsos diagnostic software like Everest will show you what 7 is using. Print the results. I always diagnose my hardware and software with the free software Aida [may be hard to find] or the commercial version Everest. Unless I've missed something the sata drivers used by win 7 bear the same name you just need the xp version.
If a true novice: go to control panel / system/ hardware /drivers and take note or print what you see there.
