Win 98 SE Drivers for Pavilion 9900

[ Edited ]

Or a means to break into the ME Recovery CD's.   Which are kept from me by  .PAQ,  Which my research says .paq  an encrypted file, like a CAB that HP uses.    I think I have all the other drivers.   The machine likes to complain about needing a driver for a PCI System Manager Bus.     If it matters, the drivers offered by intel on their analyzer caused the machine to run slow and had hangs.   Better to run without MOBO drivers than that. has nothing for this MOBO.   I see one big download from that might have the drivers, "Jetway motherboard driver 2005-11-25,"  which seems dangerous in that if it choses the wrong driver, the MOBO might be -gone.  HP MOBO board is not listed in the group this download supports.

      Thanks for any help.   The computer is  specifically.
