Intalling window xp over vista

XP does not include SATA drivers in the distribution. You need to get the SATA drivers for your particular model from HP's website and watch for the prompt to hit F6 when prompted to install SATA or RAID drivers.

The trick is that the mechanism to add these drivers at this point assumes that you have a floppy drive which is rare these days. There are a number of work-arounds for this, here is one:

Printer (922) won't install on new laptop

If your laptop is running Vista and your old desktop was running XP and the disk you got with your printer had drivers that worked with XP and Vista is not listed on them, it would be a case of incompatibility. You would need to go to the Dell website to download updated drivers for Vista if they are not of the standard Vista driver package. (The driver model changed between XP and Vista making XP drivers incompatible with Vista.)

I need the steps to take to install windows xp on my pre-loaded vista.

Hello there.

Unfortunately, even though you have paid for a Vista license, this does not mean you can just install any copy of Windows XP. You need to purchase either Windows XP Home or Windows XP Professional. If its a business system you would be better with Windows XP Pro.

The reason for purchasing is that the software is licensed to you, you may wish to contact Toshiba and see if they can swap your Vista license for a Windows XP license. The other option is picking up a copy of Windows in the shop and installing it yourself. This is no easy task unless you have experience doing so.

Please try either contacting Toshiba to see what they say, or see about purchasing your own windows XP.

Hope this helps.

You have to download XP drivers from the manufacturer's website. This normally happens because your harware was designed for the new OS(Vista).

Just go to and search for the model of your Laptop.
