No, Vista product key is no good for XP, if the last owner of the pc had a genuine copy of either he should have put a sticker on the back of the pc with the product key code on, on the underside of a notebook, if neither, you will have to purchase a new license from microsoft

I NEED TO FORMAT MY HARD DRIVE ON MY DELL LATITUDE D810 LAPTOP I HAVE VISTA HOME BASIC OPERATING SYSTEM NOW AND I WANT TO PUT WINDOWS XP ON MY LAPTOP INSTEAD. I NEED STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS IF POSSIBLE....


If you change your operating system to Win Xp, you will loose your camera, dvd burner and possibly your ethernet controllers to get on the internet. Win Xp does not support them. Are you sure you want to do it anyway? If so, all you have to do is put the Win Xp disk inside the cd/dvd player on the pc and restart it. You will see "press any key to boot from cd". Press a key to follow the prompts and keep hitting the continue or next prompt until finished.

Hello,

Your license is still valid but you have to call Microsoft ( 1-800-805-4440) and provide them your product id so that they can generate the a new windows XP key for you or may be they will offer you Windows 7. Anyhow, you do not have to buy a new Windows XP key.

Windows 7 revert back to Win XP


I think that what's important is license key of your Win XP, the installer for Win XP can be downloaded from any download site now a days. If you have a friend or know someone who has the Win XP installer, you can barrow it from them or have it copied on another disc. Then use the license key that you have from your previous operating system (Win XP).

You must also make sure that the installer that you will be using is the same version that you used to have before installing Win 7. I hope this one helped in a way.

I have a win xp-2 i have need the cd key & product key &sirealkey


The disc or the case should have the product key if you bought it alone. If you purchased a computer with Windows pre-installed the cd key should be on a sticker on your computer somewhere. If you just downloaded and burned Windows XP Service Pack 2 you could purchase the key from Microsoft online.

Win vista cd key in xp professional


Usually when you purchase a new pc with the operating system installed, they put a sticker on the machine with the CD key on it. You may have the XP key sticker on the machine. Good luck.

Want to downgrade from windows Vista to Windows XP


Hi ginger,
Suggest you back up you're personal data to either a CD/DVD or mem stick.
Windows in general will not allow you to downgrade. It does not matter what version you have. If you put your windows CD in your CD-ROM & boot the Win XP CD you will have to format the hard drive. Only than will windows XP install. Everything on your PC will be erased. If you’re sure this is what you want than put your Win XP CD into your CD-ROM & restart your PC. You should see; to boot to the CD press any key...... (Press the space bar). Win XP should start to load. If windows does not start to load, restart your PC & press the F8 key every two seconds. This should bring up a boot menu, use your up & down arrow keys & highlight the CD-ROM drive than press enter. Windows will begin to install. Choose format when shown on your screen. If you choose to re-install windows you will end up with double folders & that is no fun.

Good Luck!
If I can be of more service, just post back & let me know how thing went.
