Default Durabook D15TS Hard Drive driver for XP Needed

Hey all.

I have a durabook dual core centrino here, came loaded with windows vista, and my client doesn't want to run vista anymore, prefers xp. So, we have located and downloaded all of the drivers with the exception of the hard disk controller drivers. Would I be better off trying to find drivers via the manufacturer of the drive, because I did a google, visited the manufacturers site, and searched here with no results. Any help would be greatly appreciated

When it had Vista installed, you should have looked in Device Manager to see what all hardware is installed in the machine. If you no longer have Vista installed, then you may need to re-installed it in order to identify your hardware.
It probably has a SATA hard drive and the brand doesn't matter, as hard drives do not require any driver.... hard disk controllers do. So unless you can identify the SATA controller, you won't get past first base during installation of the os.
