hp pavilion p7-1534 Desktop PC Downgrade to Windows 7. Driver help!

Hello!

 

I am currently in the process of downgrading my pc from Windows 8.1 to Windows 7 So far I have both of the os on a Dual Boot until I have Windows 7 completed then I will remove windows 8.1. My only problem is that the drivers recommended by other forum posts aren't working for me.

I've managed to install one driver with success which is the Original Amd Graphics Driver. But when trying to install any of the other drivers it will end in either "The update did not complete successfully. (259)" Or "Your system does not meet the minimum requirements for this update. Update has been cancelled (9996)." Or a popup window that says "The program may not of installed correctly. (Option 1)Reinstall with recommended settings? (Option 2)No the program is working properly."

 

Please help!

Re: hp pavilion p7-1534 Desktop PC Downgrade to Windows 7. Driver help!

Most of Windows 7 drivers from the HP Pavilion p7-1299c Desktop PC Drivers page should work on your computer. You can also try the following chipset manufacturer drivers;

 

AMD Chipset Drivers (Chipset / AHCI / USB 3.0)

AMD Graphics Driver

Qualcomm Atheros AR816X QCA817X Family Drivers

 

If you still have missing or unknown devices after installing the drivers, please post the Windows Device Manager's "Hardware Ids" for those devices as shown in the example below;

Re: hp pavilion p7-1534 Desktop PC Downgrade to Windows 7. Driver help!

So I got the Hardware I.Ds...

 

-------------------------------------------------------
Network Controller
-------------------------------------------------------
PCI\VEN_1814&DEV_539B&SUBSYS_18ED103C&REV_00
PCI\VEN_1814&DEV_539B&SUBSYS_18ED103C
PCI\VEN_1814&DEV_539B&CC_028000
PCI\VEN_1814&DEV_539B&CC_0280
-------------------------------------------------------
Ethernet Controller
-------------------------------------------------------
PCI\VEN_1969&DEV_1091&SUBSYS_2AE0103C&REV_08
PCI\VEN_1969&DEV_1091&SUBSYS_2AE0103C
PCI\VEN_1969&DEV_1091&CC_020000
PCI\VEN_1969&DEV_1091&CC_0200
-------------------------------------------------------

 

I am mainly looking for the network controller to get onto the internet without having to boot up Windows 8. The other one would be nice but not necessary.

 

Thanks for trying to help! :smileyvery-happy:

[ Edited ]

Try the Original Ralink Wireless Network Controller Driver and Ralink Wireless Network Controller Driver Update for PCI\VEN_1814&DEV_539B&SUBSYS_18ED103C&REV_00 and Original Atheros Network Controller Driver for PCI\VEN_1969&DEV_1091&SUBSYS_2AE0103C&REV_08

 

You could also use MediaTek Downloads and Qualcomm Atheros AR816X QCA817X Family Drivers for the respective network controllers.

 

If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

@Lasvegaswireman,

I am typing this from Windows 7! Thanks! The mediatek download page solved the wireless driver problem.

 

Much Apreciated,
