OK, here's my input after several evenings frustration in dual booting my HP Laptop.
I have bought a HP Pavilion dv6570ed preinstalled Vista Home Premium, core 2 duo mobile t5250, 965 intel mobile chipset, 3100 intel graphics accelerator, 120 gb toshiba hdd
I started following the guides in the forum here in partitioning a 20 gb drive called D: for my XP boot. Still had an old XPSP1 pro version, so no sata drivers, so I got the message no HDD 's found. I followed the guide on slipstreaming SP2 in it and the SATA drivers. I found the f6flpy32 on the intel website. I have an intel mobile 965 chipset, so you have to check your chipset. In the search box just put f6flpy32 and you'll get about 200 results at intel, so it really is out there!
Slipstreamed this also in the iso and then installed XP with the new image.
It did install, hoorah, but then I was missing a whole lot of drivers. No help from HP, the telephone support jut kept saying I should install my recovery disc.
On the HP website were only three drivers:
-The quicklaunch buttons
-The wireless assistant.
I installed these, but was still missing wireless network connection, wired network connection, audio and graphics......not good.
I went to intel first again:
Downloaded the chipset installation utility ich8 for mobile 965 chipset
Downloaded the matrix storage manager for mobile 965 chipset
Downloaded the intel pro/wireless 3945 (under WIFI)
Downloaded the graphics accelerator for mobile 965 chipset
And installed all these, my wireless was now working, the graphics were much better, but was still missing my wired network and audio
I went to realtek:
Downloaded the realtek high definition audio codec
Downloaded the RTL 8101 PCI Express family driver NIC
And installed these, my wired network was now working, but still no audio.
It seemed that something called Plug and Play Software Device Enumerator was still (under system devices in device manager) missing some drivers. I needed two files, swenum.sys and swenum.inf to install this. swenum.sys was to be found in the system32 folder, the other one I found somewhere on a forum.
After these were installed, my audio was working!!!!!!!!!!! And by now it was actually working pretty smooth!
I found the driver for the Ricoh 5-in1 card reader in a link in one of the above forums and am still missing the modem, but who cares about that......no one is using that anymore. It only found the modem after I installed the swenum files, before that it didnt even see it.....
Than I connected to MS update and installed about 90 updates and was ready to further install my programs. All seems to be working fine!!!!!
Thanx for all the great guides and help on this forum, otherwise I never would have realized my dual boot!!!! My tip is to really carefully read the guides!!! It took a few tries before I had it all going all right!
