Modification GPU drivers for XP?

Hey. I own a Lenovo B50-45 and due to horribly weak components Windows 10 runs tragically on it, 7 doesn't perform well either. I use it especially for old games from the years 2001-2007. I put XP on it and it works very efficiently, it's nice to use it. Only problem is that drivers for graphics work from 7 x32 bit upwards. I tried to upload the drivers by modifying the INF files but it did not work. Is there any way to modify the driver so that it works under Win XP and Directx, regardless of 32 or 64. It is a AMD Radeon R2 graphics card. It is quite old because of 2013 and I am surprised that the manufacturer has not released drivers for XP.

try downloading the last AMD drivers for XP (14.04 I think?) and adding the hardware ID to the INF file, see if that works.

I modified the INF file but after installation I get an Error 10. Unable to start the device

CX171234.inf

The newest AMD driver for XP (32-bit) is probably this Chinese icafe driver:

Try modifying the .inf and see if it works.

As the original link is now dead, you have to download the driver from Webarchive:

I used the R4 driver and it works like this. The laptop has R2 but R4 also accepts. Thank you very much for your help. Do you also have a file for X64?

Greetings

Have you tried this version yet? I only see x64 files for this version.

Thanks. This driver works on XP x64, just can't dim or brighten the screen. I am having trouble installing the RTL8723BE driver for the Wifi network card. It is only from 7X64 upwards and I need to download under XP X64.

Thanks. I downloaded and extracted the drivers. When installing on XP X64 I get a bluescreen. And after restarting I get Error CODE 39. I also tried other drivers from this file but the same.
