I was recently forced to do a complete new install on this machine, and having only XP, forced to downgrade to XP SP2. Now XP doesn't see my network adaptor, only sees the 1394 adaptor, which is apparently Firewire.

Short of re-installing with Vista, is there anything I can do driver wise etc. to get XP to see the network card? HP don't list a NIC driver for XP.

You can find more information on this HP forum thread. Basically, the drivers for Windows XP are here, but you should read the whole thread for more info.

Install chipset and other drivers for notebook. Since you can't get to Internet, download corresponding drivers on other PC, copy them to USB or CD and install on Pavilion.
