So my HP Laptop I purchased about a year ago had encountered some error while I was installing Sabayon Linux after creating the partition, etc. It was working until I hadn't realized I overwrote both the original Vista partition and the partition I created for Sabayon.
Well then I switched to a Beta version of Windows 7 and to my suprise it actually worked wonderfully, and my laptop was running perfectly. Unfortunately a few things I used often were not supported so I grabbed a copy of XP and was just going to start over with XP.
Unfortunately when I installed and booted XP, it could not detect any of the hardware, ie: graphics card, network card, etc.
So my question is; what do I do to get XP to function properly, as in how do I get my graphics card and network card detected? To my knowledge I have an nVidia but because it's not detected I do not know the model, and I have no clue what my network card is.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
