Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook
I would like to install windown XP onto my current Compaq Presario C700 can this be done any suggestion would be much appreciated.
I would suggest first trying to make it a dual boot to make sure you can get all the drivers working. Vista has a resize function for the drive size, and you can install XP in a second partition (probably about half the drive would be nice) There are directions for that elsewhere. You can make a folder on the partition after you install the XP Windows system (Vista should see the XP partition with no problem) and download drivers as you find them in the Vista, which will still have connectivity software running, while XP might not connect until you find the ethernet and wireless drivers. I looked in Google, and found several sites with people looking for and finding the XP drivers that worked. You will need a working copy of the version of XP you want to install, with COA/install numbers for the XP, of course. Good Luck.
