I've installed Windows XP on a 2011 hp computer we got..problem is it won't recognize any of the hardware..well most of it..now I know XP kept addings packs up till 3 I believe for the ever changing hardware world but what sucks is I can't get to the internet to download them..I've got a Ethernet cable I've ran from my wifi upstairs to downstairs.(only way I could do it)to one of those cards with an antenna...forgot the name but this xp is only reconizing a dail up connection..how can I get it to connect to the internet?I know once I do I can get the drivers and service packs..tried copying service pack 2 from another computer but don't think it the right one or I messed copying..actually tried twice...lots of different sites trying to offer them for something in return of course and I know Microsoft isn't supporting it any more so what should I do..list my job and would love to make a resume and apply online and the computer was free..
