Downgrading this model may not be as easy as You think. 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. Some users were trying to downgra this model but never informed about results as i remember. Therre may appear really big problems with finding correct audio drivers, but it's always Your decision about downgrade.
Before downgrade make Vista backup. Here You've got all informations how to do it. (This will let You for reinstalling Vista if there will be any problems with XP).
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 2.
Your sound card is IDT. Informations about it You will find in Part3.
