Windows 7: Getting Drivers

Getting Drivers

I'm trying to install XP but it keeps BSODing from the lack of HDD drivers. W7 installs them fine so I was wondering if I could possibly "slipstream" (if that's the correct term, I have no idea.) from the W7 CD? Is this even possible?

No idea, it's on this really crappy desktop I have. I can't 'load' drivers because I don't have a floppy drive. This is the computer:http://support.gateway.com/emachines...EL1210nv.shtml

OK You are installing XP on this EL1210? What install media are you using? Is it the original restore CD? Is it a retail copy of XP? Can you tell what SP (Service Pack 1, 2, or 3) the install applies?

You may be able to "Slipstream" SP3 into you install CD and resolve your HD driver issue, if you are not already using an XP SP3?

Edit: you can also add chipset drivers to the install CD.

See the ElderGeek for a quality step-by-step for slipstreaming XP SP3. It is actually quite easy to do. F6 drivers are another matter entirely. If XP is booting, you are not referring to F6 drivers though.

You will have the option to include all of your drivers,plus more, on the install CD. Including your favorite reg tweaks.
