You will have to boot from the disc and erase the whole Vista install to make this possible.

1) Turn off the computer with the XP disc inside then restart.

2) Pull up the boot menu at the first screen that pops up (Usually the PC brand logo). You can do this by pressing F12 on most computers but it may be different, it's usually written on the first screen if it is.

3) In the boot menu there are choices like, HDD, PXE, etcetera. Pick the one that says CD-Rom OR Optical Drive OR DVD-ROM.

4) It should start loading. Follow the steps and do a full format whn it asks.

BEWARE! This will erase ALL of your data.

Step 1:
SP3 is the third and final service pack released for Microsoft Windows XP, and it eliminates many of the security holes that previously affected XP. While Microsoft recommends that users download SP3 using Windows Update, some users are unable to do so. However, it's easy to create a Windows XP SP3 installation CD; it requires only that you download the pack from the website and burn it to a CD-R/DVD-R using an ISO burner program.
Download the SP3 installation ISO by visiting the first link listed in the "Resources" section of this article. Save it to your Desktop. Download ImgBurn and save it to your Desktop. Double-click the installation executable for ImgBurn and click "Next." Follow the remaining onscreen prompts and click "Finish" to complete installation of ImgBurn. Insert a blank CD-R/DVD-R into your DVD drive. Open ImgBurn by going to "Start," "Programs" and "ImgBurn." Click "File," then "Browse for a source file." Navigate to your Desktop and select the SP3 ISO file. Click "Open." Click the blue "ISO to CD" button located on the bottom left of ImgBurn. The program will begin creating the Windows XP SP3 installation CD. This process may take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes to complete depending on the speed at which the CD-R/DVD-R is being burned. Click "OK" once the CD-R/DVD-R has finished burning. You've successfully created a Windows XP SP3 installation CD.

You cannot upgrade (as you say load ) from Windows XP to Windows XP. You simply cannot do this and there is no point in doing it as I explain. You can upgrade Windows XP to Windows Vista easily. In the case that you want to keep Windows XP and want to enjoy better security and new features than what you do is you go to "My computer" icon and right click it and then take properties of it. The new page that will open you carefully check for these SP1(Service Pack 1), SP2 (Service Pack 2) or likewise SP3.
If you do not find any (SP)Service Packs than according to your requirement you can download and install SP1 or SP2.
Caution: The third level service Pack for Windows XP is SP3. Microsoft has declared that it is not for everyone. I strongly discourage you to install SP3 unless you have a strong requirement for it. After that you can put your XP on normal regular updates from Microsoft.

Good Luck!

Download older version of Avira Antivir


Why xp SP1??.

If you dont update your OS, even with the best Antivirus you will be in big trouble with security breaches/holes.

IF your copy of windows will not pass the WGA then you are out of luck with Avira . Avira needs SP2 so you could try AVAST, its min requirements are.

At this moment there is no Vista driver for this printer.
You may download the current XP driver from HP to provide printing functionality. Windows Vista printing is very similar to Windows XP and most print drivers supported in XP environment for LaserJet printers may also work in the Windows Vista operating system.
