How do I setup a dual boot for a PC with Vista and XP? I want XP to start automatically.My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite L355-S7915 that had Vista Home Basic preinstalled.


The first thing you need to do is repartition the hard drive. This will effectively erase the drive because partitions run below the OS level.

You create two partitions and then you can load each OS to its own partition. When the box boots you choose the OS you want to start and thats it...I think if you put the preferred OS in the first partition it will load that one by default.

You need both OS disks to do this so make sure your factory Vista disk works.

Can i install XP on a preinstalled vista OS on Compaq presario c700, and can i get the drivers i need?


You can install XP over Vista if you want. You should be able to get the drivers as well. I believe the instructions for this (if you need them) can be found at HP (Compaq).

Be very certain this is what you want to do before you start. Are you having trouble with your present configuration? It may be easier to fix your trouble than change your OS.

You may want to go to www.pcpitstop.com and have your computer scanned for problems before you start. This is a free service. If you go ahead with the install, go back to PC Pitstop and have it scanned.

Vista to xp


You should first try acer's site, assuming that they actually created the drivers. I tried once to do the same but some of the hardware's drivers proved to be useless... It is best if you find the drivers at the acer site, as it is much more reliable than other places in the net...

Vista back to XP


Sorry to say it but not a lot. Sony might or might not have xp drivers on there web site. you are most likely stuck with vista. you could try to look up the drivers individually from each device manufacture but that might not work for all of them plus its a pain in the neck. i don't see why everyone dislikes vista so much. while its not my most favorite OS ever it is better than people give it credit for. i say just live with vista for a while before you decide to through it out. and if you do through it out why note through on a Linux distro.

Installing XP over preinstalled Vista


You can Install XP simply by inserting the Installation Disk and running the Install Program. When asked where you want to install it select C:\ and let it remove the existing Operating System.

PeepnLklown is correct that this MAY void your Warranty so check this out first. If this is not a problem, install XP as described.

As regards the Drivers, it is IMPORTANT to have the correct Drivers FOR THE OPERATIING SYSTEM INSTALLED, all your devices should have XP drivers listed on the Manufacturers sites - so Identify the components and download the drivers from the manufacturers site (this may not be Toshiba) before you install XP (to make sure that you will have the XP Drivers for the devices).

To identify the Devices - open Device Manager (If I remeber correctly this can be found in Control Centre under Administrative Tools) and open each of the devices which will display the manufacturer and model number of each device. Write these down and do a Google search with the following string:

(brand Name) (Model number) +driver

This should take you to the manufacturers Support site where you can download drivers. Check to see that XP is listed as one of the Operating Systems. Download the Driver and (when you have them all) burn them to a disk.

Install XP and when asked for the drivers, direct it to the disk you have burned to find the drivers. The DVD Burner may need to be searched for on the Internet (after you have Installed XP) before you can use this device to read the Disk.

Good luck.

V3424au presario notebook update


This is possible but will take some patience. Install Windows XP & Service Pack 2 Then check what drivers are NOT installed by going to device manager. Then go the the Compaq page that lists the drivers for Vista: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=2093&lc=en&cc=uk&dlc=en&product=3446906&lang=en Make a note of the name/model of these drivers and search for the XP equivelent usually by visitng the device manufacturers website. Im sorry this is complicated and long winded but its the only way.
