Unable to install Win XP on Z470

I am unable to install Windows XP without having any device driver problem (especially HD Audio and PCI Controller). I have downloaded all of the drivers for Windows XP in this website and installed them but still no luck. I have updated my Windows XP with the latest updates. Please help.

Re: Unable to install Win XP on Z470

did you use the link below to download drivers?
http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/uk/en/DriversDownloads/drivers_list.aspx?CategoryID=973222

did you install any service pack? ( 2 or 3 )
what's your issue exactly? to install windows or to install drivers?

Re: Unable to install Win XP on Z470

Here are devices in error:

 

Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus

Device Instance Id - HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_8086&DEV_2805&SUBSYS_80860101&REV_1000\4&245E8196&0&0301

 

PCI Simple Communications Controller

Device Instance Id - PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1C3A&SUBSYS_397517AA&REV_04\3&11583659&0&B0

 

I have even tried the Lenovo Smart Downloading but it could not also find the appropriate drivers for the above devices.

Re: Unable to install Win XP on Z470

hai... i have same problem..

i try install windows xp sp3 in IdeaPad Z470 099.

This is spesification :

- Core i3-2310M

- 2GB DDR3

- 640GB HDD

- DVD+RW

- NIC

- WiFi

- VGA NVIDIA GeForce 520M 1GB

- Camera

when i want to install the VGA, the lenovo consumersupport no NVIDIA VGA driver for windows xp, only the intel HD Graphics.
I tried to find its drivers on the Nvidia site, I get the drivers: 275.33-desktop-winxp-32bit-bahasa-WHQL. But when I try to install, there is the inscription: did not find its hardware.
Tell me the link to download the NVIDIA GeForce 520M Video driver Windows XP for my laptop Z470.

Yes, Here attached the nvidia and intel stickers I3.

 

I've downloaded 3 drivers from nvidia site:
1. 275.33-desktop-winxp-32bit-english-whql
2. 270.61-desktop-winxp-32bit-english-whql
3. 268.03-desktop-winxp-32bit-international-whql


all three said:
The device software could not find the hardware support ..

when I look in the BIOS, there is a Nvidia GeForce GT 520M ...
but when i try to install VGA driver:
Intel Onboard Graphics Driver - IN2VDO47WW1
Video driver who was from his lenovo site, could be to install, but I see in "Device Manager" still no video controller (VGA Compatible) who have not installed .. (At first there are 2 Video Controller, after installing the Intel onboard graphics, there's a video driver who is not already installed).


 

this BIOS for my lenovo :

Product Name : IdeaPad Z470

Bios Version : 4ACN26WW

EC VERSION : 4AEC23WW

Nvidia VBIOS Ver : Nvidia 70.08.46.00.08

Intel VBIOS Ver : Intel 2089

Lenovo SN :*********

 

I have one more question:
drivers for wifi use what?


Noye : I'm Installing windows XP SP3
