Question about Compaq Evo N610C Notebook
If your main goal is to remove Vista and install XP, then the straight dope is to format your drive and reinstall XP. In this case, you will need your XP installation cd (with the serial #, of course) or an MS-DOS boot floppy or cd that you can get from the internet (check www.bootdisk.com). Have your PC boot on the the ms-dos boot disk or to your XP installation CD. If you are using the XP installation CD, just press R to repair existing installation. You will be given a command line. When you are already logged on (i.e. c:> appears), type "format c:" NOTE: make sure you have backed up your important data before doing this. Once it's done, you can restart the computer and boot again on the installation cd and install as normal. Note that C: here refers to the drive where Vista is installed. It can be any letter, depending on your setup. I'm afraid I can't help you with getting Vista back, because the serial number is the most essential part of the installation. You can grab any copy of Vista, but without the serial, it's useless.
