I owned a HP dv 4 1120us notebook. I encountered the blue screen everytime when I try to downgrade the Vista Home Premium system to XP. The blue screen said that I need to unistall any hard driver controller. I have tried many time, and it is still giving me this error. I even tried to make the notebook as a dual-boot system, however, the computer will not let me install.

I installed XP on a dv4 and many other Pavilion/Presario. it's my preferred hobby.
I want to tell you that some part are not working perfectly because XP is not supported.
The quickPlay button wil not work
Some function key will not work (for example you cannot change the display brightness usig nfunction keys)
The first step you have to do is to integrate the disk controller into Windows XP cd using the software nlite from nliteos.com.
If you don't know hoe to use nlite, you can see a small movie here http://www.filecloud.com/user/files.php?category_i
I already posted the driver list and some instruction here http://h30434.www3.hp.com/psg/board/message?board.

I have a dv4-1125nr and could not make my wifi and sound work.I checked the list of drivers that you posted, but my dv4-1125nr uses Broadcom 802.11 b/g WLAN and not Intel. Do you know how to make it work?
Also, my Realtek Adapter is RTL8102 - do you know if the 8168 file will work?
