Question about Intel Motherboard
I was downgrading a sony vaio operating system from vista to xp..whenever I would install a window xp cd it would say cannot find fixed disk. But when I log to vista or run vista the hard disk is there. what could be the problem. please email me for answers firstname.lastname@example.org
You MUST use a full version of XP because Vista has different MBR Master Boot record that Upgrade ver XP does not recognize
I have downgraded 3 laptops this way and had no trouble
when asked what you want to do " Install repair etc " press the D key for delete then the L to delete the F key for format and format as NTFS quick
