Have Pavilion ze5170 which shipped with XP but need to change to Windows Server 2000.  According to HP, the driver is from ATI in the Radeon family.  Used the ATI website to download the driver but it fails with with no video .inf .  

Have checked various websites but none are listed for the ze5170 and not sure if the others would work.  Has anyone converted there XP to 2000 successfully and what drivers did you use?

Thanxs,
Glass

Sunray,

It has bios, firmware, and patches but no drivers.

Crossing my fingers that it will work.  HP is emphatically saying that no drivers exist for 2000....  At work now so will try it tonight and let you know.

Thanks,
Glass

adonis1976,

Tried the driver and received a blue screen that basically said it couldn't find the video entry point.  

Mihailo:
Will try this one.  Are you like me???  Taking a pavilion ze5170 loaded with XP and converting to Windows 2000?

Gave up on loading a driver after 8 different ones.  So went back to XP.  ATI says to go to manufacturer.  HP says this video chip in Pavillion is only for XP and doesn't exist for Windows....
