Hi,

 

First make Vista beckup. All informations how to do it here.

You have a folder with drivers & programs that may prove very helpful after XP downgrade. Copy folder C:\Swsetup to DVD Before formatting your hdd.

 

Update Your Bios here.

 

Now You need to slipstream Your Sata drivers (only ICH9M-E/M SATA AHCI Controller) with nLite.

Here is guide how to do it and here are Sata drivers  for You. Just unrar this drivers with winrar.

 

Be sure also that You are using WinXP SP2 version. If you haven't got SP2 version here you can download this service pack

and here You have got guide how to slipstream this file with Your system again by nLite.

In this program You can even burn Your new XP cd with this driver.

4. Find Your Vista audio driver on this DVD where You burned C:\Swsetup folder. It may also work under XP.

 

When You will install any audio driver with success check is Your sound working.

Choose install from a list or specific location, Don't search, Have disk,

Browse to the location of machine.inf.

Do it for the rest of unknown devices.
