Well, with any amount of luck, when you installed xp you didn't erase the recovery partition. Just boot into the recovery partition. Some laptops will let you have that option on a regular boot.

Of course, if you have the vista cd, just boot with that. You can download a free vista recovery cd here:

If that doesn't work, try to download easyBCD and hope that your vista partition shows up in xp:

    Sometimes when booting, you have to hit an "F#" key to get into recovery. Also, from your xp desktop go to: start>settings(classic view)>control panel>administrative tools>computer management>disk management. If ,buy luck you see other partitions in there, you should be good to go to change your computer to boot to both OS's with EasyBCD.

What is the stape Win vista from xp pro sp2 downgrage


Sorry, but if I read your post correctly, there are no "downgrade" instructions for going from Windows Vista to XP SP2. The only way back is to totally reformat the drive and reinstall XP SP2.
Please rate this solution if you feel it has helped! Thanks!!

WRONG SOFTWARE


pls retore ur OS like this without backup disc fast and easy just see this

When you first turn on the laptop and see the Acer logo screen, hold the ALT key and press the F10 key (you need to do this before the Acer logo disappears).
