    Here's my problems:

    1. I am to fix this computer for a friend of mine. It's a HP Pavilion 6735 KR.
    2. My idiot friend lost the HP Recovery CDs that came with it.
    3. It has Windows ME installed, and I want to put Windows 98SE on it instead.
    4. Windows ME boots to a BSD in both Normal and Safe Modes (corrupt or missing ./iosubsystem).
    5. I have only a vague idea what the Graphics, Audio, Modem, and NIC are, so I don't know what drivers to look for.
    6. HP Support has no drivers for download, and no useful details about the system.

    HP's so-called support site is a worthless waste of my valuable time. This is what I was able to find out about the machine:

    Video: 810L (Not enough info for Driverguide.com to find anything)
    Audio: Crystal AC'97 (Not enough info for Driverguide.com to find anything)
    Modem: HP Mac 56k Lt Win Modem (I have no clue where to begin with this)
    NIC: Nothing. It could be anything. It could be a end-user add-in for all I know.

    Note: I can pull the HDD and install it as a secondary in my system, but where on the disk would I look for driver specs in an HP factory WinME install?

    Someone please help me. I've Googled and Yahooed myself to death looking for hardware specs on this pile of junk, and I'm getting nowhere.

    HP drivers from their site, mostly for Windows ME but as a last resot they may work: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?product=59857&lang=en&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&os=54

    Specs:
    http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...7&lang=en&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&docname=bph05973

    It has Intel 810 chipset: http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scr...ctID=178&OSFullName=Windows*+98+SE&submit=Go!
    So you want the Chipset INF, Application INF, Graphics and Audio driver.

    The modem is from Lucent/Agere: http://www.agere.com/support/client/modem_dinstruct.html

    For the Ethernet I would just look at the card itself to identify it. Look for teh model number ofr the chipset type. You can also use Everest to identify the card once you have a working O/S on it. Look under Device -> Physical Devices and the Ethernet card will be listed.

    Of course the easiest thing to do is keep Windows ME on it. You could even order new Recovery CD's and then you wouldn't lose any Microsoft Works programs in it or worry about drivers.
