I need Windows XP on my new laptop, but cannot find drivers. I'd like to install in ahci mode, my chipset is HM87. I have HD4400 integrated graphics and discrete Radeon 8850M.


​Could you please guys advice a solution?

Read this. Fernando1's modded AHCI drivers should work, though.

JFUI, for some Haswell 8-series motherboards, f.e. Intel DB85FL there is no official Intel LAN driver for Windows XP/2003 (in this case it is Intel I217V).


Latest LAN package (below) does not contain them.

Network Adapter Drivers for Windows XP*, Final Release
File name: PRO2K3XP_32.exe 
Version: 18.3 (Latest)
Date: 05/15/2013



However in this package (below) it exists (for I217V forcible choose I217-LM)

Intel® Ethernet Drivers for Microsoft* Embedded Operating Systems

Version: 11.5 (Current)
Date: 09/01/2013




Hope this helps. :)
