I would suggest when you start the install of XP, chose to re-format you hard drive for a clean install. The Vista files need to be erased completely before XP will install on the drive. If you can, I would use fdisk first and then install XP. Let us know how it goes from here.

    fdisk is a DOS command used to partition hard drive for operating systems. A few more question for you; 1. What size is your hard drive? 2. Is the Vista fully installed? (If you start your pc, will it boot up to Vista?



    After you anwer this for me, I can guide you a little better to a possible solution.

to resolve it, go to BIOS setting-->change BIOS SATA setting to ATA mode--->apply changes-->insert windows CD and restart the system-->press f12--->nd boot from CD....hope u will be able to resolve it.

While installing xp showing error


Hi Friend

Try this may help you in creating a dual boot.

First find the drivers for your network components, wireless card or nic, and save them to an external device such as a floppy disk or flash drive.

Then you will need to go into the BIOS on your computer startup. Scroll to the System Configuration tab and go down to the SATA Native Support and change its setting to Disabled. Then hit F10 to Save and Exit. (You don't need to change the BIOS if you have an ATA or IDE hard drive.)

Next, insert your Windows XPmag-glass_10x10.gif CD and create the partition you wish to install XP on. After the installation is complete you should boot automatically into XP. (To do this, right click the Computer icon in start, and select manage. Then select Disk Management, and you can do whatever you want with your partition.)

Now you need to move some files. First, make sure you have set your folder options to see hidden files and to show protected operating systemmag-glass_10x10.gif files. Then open Windows Explorer and go to the drive where Vista is installed. Copy the folder Boot, and the files bootmgr, boot.ini, NTDETECT.COM and ntldr and paste them to the root of your XP drive.

Then download Vista Boot Pro and save it to your desktop or somewhere else that you can easily access. Unless you already have .Net Framework (v2.0 at least) it will redirect you to a Microsoft page where you can download this necessary component.

Install and run Vista Boot Pro and open the "Bootloader" tab. Select "Reinstall the Vista bootloader" and press Apply. Then go to the Manage OS Entries tab and select "Add new operating system entry" and make sure you select "Windows Legacy". Give the new entry a name (ie: Windows XP) and select the drive letter you have XP on and then select Apply. You can also choose which entry you would like as the default the system will boot to.

And now you should be able to dual boot between Vista and a previous OS.

I hope this will help you out. Please vote for me.

I want 2 reset my entire dell d630 laptop How do I do this I don't have any of the passwords


Hey,

I hope when you say that you wish to reset the system you mean you need to go to the factory settings. If you wish to go to the factory settings and even if you do not remember the password, there is still a way to do it. But in order to do it you need to have the OS disc from Dell. You have one, you can perform the following steps. It works for Vista:

HOW TO RESTORE DELL LAPTOP TO FACTORY SETTINGS USING DELL OPERATING SYSTEM WINDOWS VISTA DVD
1. Insert the Dell Windows Vista DVD into the DVD drive, and then restart the computer. 2. During the startup process, repeatedly press <F12>. 3. In the Boot Device Menu, press the <Down Arrow> to select *Onboard or USB CD-ROM Drive, and then press <Enter>. If the Boot Device Menu does not appear, restart the computer. (You might not get Onboard or USB CD-rom Drive in that case if you get any option that says anything about CD or DVD, select that option) 4. When the Press any key to boot from CD or DVD screen appears, immediately press any key to start the computer from the Windows Vista DVD. For example, immediately press the <Spacebar> when the Press any key to boot from CD or DVD screen appears. If you do not press a key immediately, the computer may not start from the Windows Vista DVD to do image restore. Instead, the computer may try to start the currently-installed copy of Windows Vista operating system. If this situation occurs, restart the computer, and then repeat steps 2 and 3.
5. When Windows Vista starts from the Windows Vista DVD, other screens may appear during the startup process. If other screens appear, accept the default options, and then continue to the language settings screen.
6. On the language settings screen, click the appropriate language in the Language to install list, click the appropriate time and currency format in the Time and currency format list, click the appropriate keyboard layout to use in the Keyboard or input method list, and then click Next. 7. On the lower-left corner of the Install now screen, click Repair your computer.
8. If the Windows Vista Setup program detects any problems on the computer, click No when the program displays the following message:
Windows found problems with your computer's startup options.
Do you want to apply repairs and restart your computer? 9. In the System Recovery Options window, under Operating System, click Windows Vista (TM) Version, even if this entry is already selected, and then click Next to display the Choose a recovery tool window. 10. Click on Command Prompt 11. Type path d:\windows;d:\windows\system32 and press <ENTER> key 12. Type d: and press <ENTER> key 13. Type cd tools and press <ENTER> key 14. Type PCRestore and press the <ENTER> key and Dell Factory Image Restore window will appear 15. Click on Next and Confirm Data Deletion dialog will appear 16.Place a check mark beside "Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition" for the final confirmation & click on Next when ready The restoration process takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes; the format bar will run back and forth (See Image 17. Click Finish to reboot system
