You can't install Windows Xp from witin Windows vista. (not backwards comparable).
restart the computer press F12 when the HP logo comes up. that will bring you into BIOS. select advace>>boot order.
select CD-ROM as first boot. HHD asn second.
exit the BIOS and restart the laptop with CD in the CD drive.
press enter when the system start to install from CD......
and follow the screen (must reformat the HHD).

Your Notebook is not having SATA drivers for XP. that is Windows XP setup do not detect your hard drive For this you need separate SATA drivers. To get more information log on to HP.com chat support for exact SATA drivers for your model.

I have HP Pavallion dv5 1106AX Notebook which comes with AMD Turion processor. I want to install Windows XP in this system but it doesn't support earlier versions than Vista. Perhaps there is some BIOS...


You must (1) create your recovery DVD's first before blowing the operating system away - doing this will enable you at a latter stage to reinstall vista latter if xp doesn't work. Go to All Programs >> Recovery Manager >> Create recovery DVD's (2) burn a copy of your software setup folder from your OS. Make a note from device manager the make of specific hardware like wifi manufacture, modem, audio, video, webcam ect. you can sometimes go to the manufactures website to chase drivers. Some of the drivers are backwards compatible with xp.
There is no code for loading xp onto your laptop or changes in bios - there are eprom settings but that is held in confidence with Hp and you can't get them without a special dos based program for you'll **** up the bios no end.
The version of Xp you use must be SATA Supported - it's that simple. Older versions of Xp that is IDE will not detect SATA drives.

I need the steps to take to install windows xp on my pre-loaded vista.


Hello there.

Unfortunately, even though you have paid for a Vista license, this does not mean you can just install any copy of Windows XP. You need to purchase either Windows XP Home or Windows XP Professional. If its a business system you would be better with Windows XP Pro.

The reason for purchasing is that the software is licensed to you, you may wish to contact Toshiba and see if they can swap your Vista license for a Windows XP license. The other option is picking up a copy of Windows in the shop and installing it yourself. This is no easy task unless you have experience doing so.

Please try either contacting Toshiba to see what they say, or see about purchasing your own windows XP.

Hope this helps.
