Windows XP on DV7-3162nr

HP Recommended
DV7-3162nr
Microsoft Windows XP

Hello. I want to install Windows XP SP3 on my HP DV-7 3162nr (which comes with Windows 7 by default). The problem is that during the installation process, I get an acpi.sys error in a blue screen... I guess I need to integrate the correct SATA AHCI driver in my Windows XP SP3 installation disc... The problem is I don't know where to find the correct driver

 

Specs:

 

AMD Turion II M520

4gb ram

 

Using a VM with XP is not an option, I need it to run on real hardware, with the purpose of correctly playing some old games which won't run well on Windows 7

 

I'd appreciate any help you can give me

Hi:

 

I have zipped up and attached the sata drivers you need to incorporate (slipstream) into your XP installation media, below.

Unfortunately, no matter what I try, I keep getting an "000000x7E" BSOD error after the textmode drivers finish loading...

 

Tried:

Slipstream the driver you gave me into an unmodified Win XP SP3 iso

Slipstream DriverPacks Base 10.06, Chipset 12.09, CPU 10.05, LAN 12.05, Mass Storage 12.09, WLAN 12.02 into another copy of the original unmodified iso

Slipstream DriverPacks into the iso with the drivers you uploaded and try to install with that iso

 

Don't know what else to do

 

All the isos work fine under virtualbox and other computers, but not on my laptop

It's possible you may need an older version of the driver I posted.

 

I zipped up and attached an older version below.
