Here is a doc that might help with dual booting:

You probably won't find XP drivers from HP for this model, but if you look up your components or maybe even search google for your model and "downgrade to xp", you may find some drivers.

 

Here is your product spec for that model:

You'll need to find the XP chipset driver, sound driver, and possibly a SATA driver.
