Acer 3690-2710 Laptop: I currently have Windows Vista but I also like to install Windows XP. Is it possible? I tried and message came up that not compatible.


Yes this is completely possible in two ways.
(1) You can install both of these Operating systems Vista ans XP on one PC and when one boots the other is not cannot be booted unless you shut down the first one. Only one OS will run at a time.

(2)You can run XP inside Windows Vista. I have not yet tried vice versa but I find no reason why it is not possible. Remember that you will be running Windows Vista and you will be running Windows XP in a Window with full functionality. You have to use a technology called Visualization. One of the software that facilitates this is called Virtual PC 2007 by Microsoft and it is not difficult to use once you have the basic knowledge. With this software you have to create something called a Virtual machine of Windows XP.

When you install XP and Vista, such as I described in option (1) above, y ou have to divide your hard disk into two parts called partitions and there are labeled as C:, D:, E: etc to distinguish from each other. If you have already installed Vista in one partition usually C: partition you install Windows XP on the other partition. If you have only one partition then you have to create an additional partition to install Windows XP otherwise the message of "not compatible" will be displayed. Remember that you cannot install two operating systems on a single Hard Disk with a single partition on it. You have to break the hard disk down into partitions and install the Windows Vista and XP one by one. You can easily create partitions using the partition software like "Partition Magic".
Since at this point I do not know which option you would like to pursue from (1) and (2) therefore I cannot guide you any further and wish you
Good Luck!

Xp on a vista laptop


Hello

I regret to inform you that it is not possible to install XP in the HP or Compaq Notebooks which are shipped with the Vista Operating System. To install XP in your notebook, you need to disable SATA option from the BIOS . I am afraid that there is no SATA disable option the BIOS. Hence, it is not possible to install XP in the notebook.

I understand some of the softwares are not compatible with Vista operating system. But, if you insall Vista SP1 in your notebook. You can also use the software which were not compatible with Vista, after installing Vista SP1.

Thanks
Regards.

I want XP back!


Usually it is possible to go back to windows xp without too many troubles, as majority of drivers are still distributed for XP as well.
You need to ensure that drivers for your devices are available for XP.
You also need to order a copy of windows XP licence and disk from your retailer, it should be around $ 100.

Purchased computer model Elite 9070a have been well serviced with HP products this being 3rd HP computer we have purchased. However am very disalusioned with Vista program and wish to replace with windows...


You sound like you tried to install XP with Vista running - this will generate the message that you have received.

To install XP on your system, insert your XP disk into the computer and then restart it.

Select Boot From Disk during start up and this will lead you into the XP Installation.

Xp will not recognise Vista and will just overwrite it - deleting the current OS and formatting the C:\

Good luck.

Not possible xp installation


How to Downgrade Vista to XP Downgrading from Windows Vista to Windows XP is almost like installing Windows XP for the first time. You should take all the normal precautions like backing up all your important files and record important passwords in a different place, preferably on a CD. When you downgrade from Windows Vista to XP, note that Windows Vista will be completely removed from your system.
(Note: There is a way to have both Vista and XP in a dual boot configuration, but that's an option for more advanced users. See Dual Booting Vista and XP for more info on that.)
Before you begin the XP installation, make sure that the necessary XP hardware drivers are available, or included on the XP disk provided by your PC vendor. If in doubt, check the vendor's website or poke around with your favorite search engine to see if others have attempted the XP install on the same hardware. You may be able to install XP without all the needed drivers, but some hardware may not work afterwards.
Also, make sure that you have a genuine Windows XP CD before you begin the downgrade. Be sure to read the section earlier in this article to see if you qualify for a low/no cost XP recovery disk from your PC vendor. If not, perhaps you have an XP disc that came with another computer. If you've upgraded an existing computer from XP to Vista, the best choice would be the XP install/recovery disc that came with that computer. One some PC's the vendor doesn't ship a CD, but the recovery CD can be created from disk images on the hard drive. If all else fails, you can always buy a copy of Windows XP on Ebay. Just be sure it's a legal, licensed copy.
Follow these steps to install Windows XP on your Vista machine:
  • Insert your Windows XP install/recovery CD and restart your computer.
  • Install Windows XP normally, providing either the product key that came with the disk, or the one you got from Microsoft customer support. If the installer warns you that another copy of Windows is already installed, don't worry. Remember, this install will wipe out your existing Vista installation.
  • Activate your copy of Windows XP when it prompts you to do so. If you run into the "already activated" problem, you can use the option to activate by phone.
  • If you own Vista Business or Vista Ultimate, explain to the rep that you want to use your Downgrade Rights to install XP Pro.
  • If you own Vista Home Basic/Premium, or you are installing XP Home Edition, don't mention ANYTHING about Vista. Just give the rep your XP product key (not the Vista key), explain that you are installing XP on a new hard drive, and tell them you need to activate.

How to install XP in toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop


You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.

Converting vista to xp sp2 version


Yes, you need the XP SP2 Disk, and make sure you boot order in your BIOS is set to your CD/DVD drive before your hard drive (if not, make it so).
Then boot the PC with the XP disk in the drive and look for boot from the CD before Vista starts to load (you'll only have a few seconds to hit any key to do it) then you will have the opportunity to delete the partition with Vista on it and then create a new on and then format the new partition and install XP.
Good luck.
