Hi there,

You need to get in bios and disable sata/native mode,then save settings and boot by xp installation cd for the downgrade.

Thanks

my notebook PC exact model number is HP Pavilion dv5 1126em. i tried installing the latest available stat drivers downloaded from Intel and is of no use.
one i boot from the CD it is loading all the files and when is coming to ask for which HDD to install it is showing blue screen error and stopping the installation.
