Question about PC Desktops
It is almost impossible to downgrade from Vista to XP unless you have the Business or Ultimate version of Vista.
From what I understand the first thing you should have done is If the system has SATA (Serial ATA) hard drive, locate the driver for SATA controller and put it in USB flash drive, diskette or CD first.
When you put the Win XP disk in to install and you get to the part that says "Press F6 if you need to install a third party SCSI or RAID driver"…” during the very initial stage of setup to load the SATA driver so that the SATA hard disk can be recognized. Install XP.
Let me know if this works for you....
