Hi,

You cannot downgrade Windows 7 from Windows XP by not reformatting the hard drive. You need to Remove Windows 7 first, before installing Windows XP Operating System. In order to use the Windows XP CD to fully reformat the Hard drive, follow the steps on the link below.

like for example you want xp or xp sp2, xp sp3, vista, r window 7..

you need it's installer cd and copy it to your pen drive...

if you want you can try searching for sites that you can download an installer..then save it to your pen drive...make sure you will copy the right application with bootable exe...so that you can format it your boot menu..

try this site it looks like reliable.. but i never tried downloading xp installer before that's why i don't know the circumstances that may happen...

i know it is about 2G + in size that's why i'm advicing you to buy a new one or if you have one just copy it to your pen drive through other computer with cd drive..

i hope i've helped you on this matter..

I have hp 520 leptop my cd rom is not working and my win xp is currept then i wants install the win xp with bootable pandrive but how make the tha pandrive is bootable-


You have problems.

It is possible to to use a Pen Drive/ Flash drive to load windows XP, but the process is never 100% reliable. You need to have the actual equivalent of the XP system disk, or boot disk, on your pen drive. Even then your system may not recognise the pen drive as a system disk. It works for some but not not for others. If you have your original XP disks, try loading it on the pen drive via another PC. It works best if the pen drive is formatted to NTFS, but may still work on FAT32 format. 2Gb pen is a general good size. Trial and error.

There is reportedly an XP Lite version that is more suited to this, but I am not clear on the details or legalities..

Your only real sensible option is to replace the CDROM. You may wish to upgrade to DVDRAM Drive for a few cents more.

Win vista uninstall


Put your window XP disk into the Disk drive. Start up your computer. When it asks you what Drive you want to install it on select C:\ (where Vista is) Say yes to deleting the current Operating System and follow the instructions from there.

You did say you wanted to Uninstall Vista!

If you mean Dual Boot Vista and XP, then you will need to create a Logical Partition of about 10 Gb to install XP on and when asked where to install select this partition. But note that XP will wipe the Boot sector clean of all other Operating Systems which means that if you want to Dual boot then you will have to reinstall Vista again to get Dual Boot functionality.

My hard drive shows only 1.5 GB instead of 100


is it correct that you installed XP from an "upgrade" pack?
when you installed XP did you convert the file system to NTFS?
