A client has a VPR Matrix 180R (nee: Best Buy private label) that needs a wipe and install of XP Home. They do not have the disks. The VPR Matrix website seems to be gone and Best Buy refers me to GS who wants to charge for a reinstall...

Anyone know where I can get the drivers?

Possibly http://www.opendrivers.com/freeware/V4.html

They show them here so you can try.

Have your client wiped the machine yet?

I found opendrivers before posting, but after trying it out it seemed more of a place to upsell me to their driver finder software and also pointed me to VPRMatrix.com -- which does not exist any longer.

Really hoping for a mirror or personal repository here! Thanks dbrunton.

@jackieman -- yes, machine is wiped. Didn't think I could reliably extract the drivers as it had hundreds of viruses on it.

Assuming you've got the CD you could slipstream the DriverPacks into it.

DriverPacks http://driverpacks.net/

Tutorial http://forum.driverpacks.net/viewtopic.php?id=1449

and then install.

Or if the computer will let you install you can update all of the drivers later.  This last might not be possible as it looks like an Intel motherboard.

Driverguide may help you but it is not free.

Only the video driver could be downloaded elsewhere.

The keyboard and RAID controller drivers are difficult to find.

Does your VPR Matrix 180R uses RAID controller to connect hard disk and it has a special keyboard?

The Raid controller is a Promise.  That should be gettable.
