You may be able to talk to the people who sold you the computer and ask them for a machine with XP as an exchange. If thats not possible you can purchase a legitimate version of XP then install it.

You can purchase it from here or a store near you may sell it:

How i make a shell pack replacement software like xpize or vista inspirat plz help me....


Hii

well windows XP does not allow you to do that, u need to de-activate the services first which monitors windows system files from getting it changed or modified. The Vista Inspirant or Vistamizer (Google them u wud get the DOWNLOAD LINKS) Both comes with built in deactivator.

While installing XP messages pop's whether to allow the modification of shell files or deny, jus click deny every time when it pops while installing these Vista packs.

NOTE: It is not suggested to change or modify shell files, unless ur very well aware of using such things, it may harm ur OS. Make sure u make a back up before u do so.

Reboot


To Reboot a computer is to turn it off, wait at least 20 seconds, then turn it back on.

A.If you're thinking of Reboot, as to reinstall the Operating System, you use a Restoration Disk, (sometimes listed as Recovery Disk), insert it in your CD/DVD drive, and restart your computer.
(Just press the CTRL, ALT and Delete keys AT THE SAME TIME.
Not shouting. Windows XP and Windows Vista are examples of an Operating System)

B.If you're trying to install an Operating System, from a CD disk that you bought, I suggest you go into BIOS Setup, and in Boot Order, change the first boot device to CDROM. Insert the CD disk in your CD/DVD drive, and restart the computer.

If you buy a Full Installation CD disk, as listed above, you have to change the Boot Order.
For example:
1.You have Windows XP on your computer now. It has problems, and doesn't work correctly. Instead of getting the Restoration Disk from your computer manufacturer, you decided to just buy a genuine copy of Windows XP, and install it. (This is a Full Installation Disk)

The Windows XP you have installed now, will not let the one you bought install over it, by just putting the disk in the drive. Change the first boot device, in Boot Order to CDROM, and it will. The Windows XP you have now, will 'see' the Windows XP you're trying to install, as just the same version. You have to install a better version of Windows, in order for it to write over what is installed.
Such as Windows Vista.

2.You have Windows Vista on your computer, and are not happy with it. You would like to put Windows XP on instead. Windows XP is considered a lesser version, and Vista won't let it write over it.
Go to BIOS Setup, change the first boot device in Boot Order, to CDROM, and it will.

Two hard drives Vista and XP not booting


If you would like to start up in the xp ,At computer start up hit F1 or F2 there are so many ways some times its hold the del key ,once your into the BIOS you can change the boot order of your drives to make the drive xp is on load first .You will have to do this everytime or buy a program that will do it for you .I would just leave the power unpluged on one of the drives until you need it that way it will be safe from a virus or if you have a hard drive crash you always have one good drive .Hops this helps.

I don't like VISTA!!!!!!!!!!!1


Ok, you need to put a new Op system on the computer, (I assume you want XP) If you have an older HP computer that came with XP on it, you probably already have the discs

Now keep in mind, you will probably have to go online and get the drivers for a lot of your hardware (modem/ethernet port, wireless card, maybe even your touch mouse)

If you have the installer of windows xp you can change the vista to xp. First check if the booting options is set to cd/dvd boot. In the cmos setup change the booting option from hdd to cd or dvd. Then insert the xp installer to the cd in follow the setup instruction
