There are big problems with drivers to XP 64 bit version, software, etc. This version isn't as good supported as other system. I know the there is one difference which may be very importnat to You. Then XP 32 bit can hold only 3,5GB of Ram and 64 bit version all that chipset can take. If You need full Ram for any program or anything else the best choice is to use two systems. One will be XP32 bit and second Vista x64 or Win7 x64.
How to install XP 32bit:
Downgrading this model is not always easy and Your model is designed for good work under Vista. Please check first this link written by Joshua Wood and concentrate in it on problems that may appear when You will be installing sound card.
Before downgrade make Vista backup. Here You've got all informations how to do it.
Now You need to slipstream Your Sata drivers (only ICH9M-E/M SATA AHCI Controller) with nLite.
Be sure also that You are using at least WinXP SP2 version. If you haven't got SP2 version here you can download this service pack and here You've got guide how to slipstream this file with XP written by nLite.
In nLite You can even burn Your new XP CD with those changes.
All drivers You will find in Cheryl's guide General XP Downgrade Guide for HP Laptops_Part 3.
If You will have any problems let me know about it. I will try to help You as fast as I can.
