I am looking for WinXP (32 bit) drivers for my motherboard, chipset, SATA drive and sound hardware on a Packard Bell iMedia X2414, so that I can slipstream the drivers onto an XP installation CD and get rid of Vista. I have already created a dual boot system using BootIt, and have Nlite ready to slipstream the drivers onto the XP CD/DVD. I've tried the Packard Bell site and they only include Vista drivers by the looks of it.

By the looks of it you are trying to find the SATA driver for a nForce 630/7050 Motherboard, you should be able to find it within the following package:

You will have to search for the drivers that are correct for your system because, as you have noticed, XP drivers are not available on the Packard Bell site
We know this machine has the nVidia Geforce 7050/nForce 630i (MCP73) chipset and Video so the place to look is:
http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us
Use Option 2 to Automatically find both Motherboard and Graphics drivers. If this dosent work use option 1 and look for the following:
Product Type: nForce
Product Series: nForce 6 Series
Product: nForce 630i/GeForce 7100
Download Type: Driver
Operating System: Windows XP
This driver should include:
Ethernet Driver (v67.89) WHQL Network Management Tools (v67.91) "Sedona" SATAIDE Driver (v10.3.0.42) WHQL SATARAID Driver (v10.3.0.42) WHQL RAIDTOOL Application (v10.3.0.42) SMU Driver (v1.61) WHQL SMBus Driver (v4.69) WHQL Away Mode Driver (v6.0.6000.107) WHQL Installer (v6.14)

Sound hardware drivers can be found by going to:

 I hope this helps

Using the link that RichardSlater provided to nVidia is the easier way to get the Chipset, Network, Motherboard drivers from NVidia. Basically the same as what I documented above, but easier.
