First you will need a Product Key for XP. Then you will need to insert your XP cd after turning on the computer. Put the cd in the CDROM drive. When given the option to boot from the cd you may have to hit enter. Pay attention to what is on your screen. At some point it may say Boot from cd:

NOTE:
If it never says this then reboot and you may see a message about boot options and it will ask you to press a key (it may be F10 or F12). When you get to this screen you should be able to select your boot order. If CDROM is not first, place it first, or right after floppy disk.

If you are not able to put the cd in the CDROM drive before you get the option to boot from cd then restart your computer.

When you boot from CD a Blue Windows Setup screen should come up. It may ask if you want to use the partition listed. You should see something below highlighted in gray. Hit enter. If it informs you about deleting it then read the screen and follow the exact instructions to delete the partition and install XP on that partition. (Of course it may be a blank partition). But you need to select a partition to install Windows on, and that partition must be blank. A partition, by the way, is an area on your hard drive that is formated a certain way in order to store an operating system, or other data.

The rest of the setup should be pretty straight forward. It is a little hard to recall what the following steps are in the order that they appear. You will get a chance to set the date. Make sure it is correct.

If you are going to connect to the internet make sure that all of the cabling and necessary boxes are connected to your computer prior to installing XP. This is not necessary, but it makes things alot easier for you. If you do not have the hardware you need for your internet connection, that is alright, you can always set it up later. There is also a place for your name and your computer's name.
When you get to the screen that asks for the Product Key you must enter it exactly as it is written down for you.

At some point during the installation, the computer will reboot. You might see the screen again that says "boot from cd:" for a few seconds. Do not hit anything at this point or the installation will restart! Just let the computer do its thing for a moment and it will return to the installation. After you come to a windows desktop, if you have internet access then you need to go to the internet and do somethings which I will cover next.

If you do not have your internet set up at this point, you need to set it up soon after the install. After 30 days your XP Operating System will not work if you do not register it with Microsoft. So it is pertinent that you setup your internet connection.

Once you are on the internet, you need to first go to Microsoft's Website and download Service Pack 3 if it was not part of your installation disk. Then you should download any XP updates that Microsoft provides. Once this is complete you should immediately install an antivirus program. If you have one on disk (such as Norton Antivirus), install it before you ever access the internet. If you do not have one, then you can go straight to a site that provides a free antivirus program such as AVG. You can download their antivirus program at www.avg.com. Then once that is installed go to Start > control panel > Network connections > in the left pane click Change Windows Firewall Settings. Select On if it is not already selected.

After this you may begin installing all of your favorite programs.

I hope this helps, please let me know if you have any further questions.

How to install window XP


This procedure demonstrates how to install Windows XP Professional. The procedure to install Windows XP home edition is very similar to the professional edition. Since Windows XP Pro is more advanced operating system, it will be used to demonstrate the installation procedure.
The best way install Windows XP is to do a clean install. It is not difficult to perform a clean installation. Before you perform the installation I recommend that you check to ensure that your hardware is supported by XP. If your hardware is not on the compatibility list you can check your hardware manufactures website to download the drivers for Windows XP. Save all the necessary drivers onto floppy disks or CD before you start the installation.

I am unable to install windows XP. is it possible to install windows XP along with the Windows 7 that is already installed........ suggest me asap


If you want to have both windows 7 and windows xp installed on your computer, it is advisable that you first install windows xp. You should allways install the oldest windows version first. To install windows XP on your computer you need the installation cd. Boot your computer with the Windows XP installation cd, maybe you have to enter bios to set cd to boot first. Let me now if you need more information.

Can i install windows-xp on my laptop which is currently working on windows-7 and use both of them.


Hi,
Yes you can install windows xp in windows 7.
Windows XP Mode is a virtual PC image of Windows XP Service Pack 3 that could be run on Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise or Ultimate versions. Applications installed into Windows XP Mode could be run in Desktop Mode or Seamless Mode. In Seamless Mode, applications appear to run natively within Windows 7, but they are actually running inside the Windows XP virtual machine. Windows XP Mode might also provide additional integration that traditional Virtual PC images might not be giving. Applications installed on the Windows XP image could be exposed to the Windows 7 Start menu. Applications run in seamless mode is having automatic access to the Windows 7 known folders like Documents, Pictures, Desktop, Music, etc. Also the Cut-and-paste is enabled between native Windows 7 applications and those running in Windows XP Mode. Applications running in Windows XP Mode might also access your Windows 7 network connection and USB devices.

Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 contains Windows Installer 3.1 and therefore can't be installed or upgraded by this redistributable.

Windows xp is not instaling in my system


Hi!

In order to have a multi-boot system (i.e. 2 or more operating systems installed, so you can choose the one you want to use each time), you must have Windows XP installed FIRST, and then install Windows 7.

If it's ONLY Windows XP that you need, repartition the hard drive during the first setup step of Windows XP installation process.

Good luck,
Pelu.

How to install XP in toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop


You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.
