The whole problem occurs when you downgrade this laptop to Windows XP.
The 2nd thing to note, is that your downloading all of your drivers from the European site, as their United States, Pan American site is trash. [ If the link goes no where, then the proof’s in the pudding. ]
From that point on, you can just install Windows XP like normal, and download the necessary drivers from their website. Additionally if you install Windows XP first, then update the bios as quick as you can to avoid freezes and wireless internet not working. Take note that while 3.6 v. bios is good for Windows XP, there are usually different versions of the bios for XP and Vista for many laptops. This is spectacularly annoying. Apple, on the other hand makes one ‘firmware’/bios for both.
