  22. hi. the entire data on my cq60 230ei has been removed. when I try install vista I get a message sayin I need to install hard drive drivers! where can I find those for a Vista installation?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Been reading this post for so many times because I am also planning to downgrade my CQ60-214DX laptop however I'm still not sure whether to give it a shot or not. Can you please tell me in particular the drivers I need for my CQ60-214DX laptop inorder to downgrade it to XP.

    Thank You so much...

    ReplyDelete
  25. The step i would suggest is first to make your Vista recovery which you can read here:
    http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00809678&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=3552675&rule=46565&lang=en

    Second is to Understand the slipstream process, why? because your model originally build for Windows Vista and 7, so if you install windows XP you will get error "NO HDD Detected", so to solve this issue you need to create a new Win XP CD which have SATA DRIVERS to detect your HDD. To perform the Slipstream Process you can follow tutorial here:
    http://laptop-driver.blogspot.com/2009/10/slipstreaming-guide-to-install-windows.html

    Third, all the drivers for Compaq Presario CQ60-214DX Windows XP all listed here:
