Question about Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook
Is there anybody over there who can help me to switch from vista to xp on my caer aspire 5315-2153 laptop? You help would be much appreciated. But, if you know how, please imagine somebody who knows nothing almost of those know-how-tricks. I mean I need step-by-step procedure.
Thank you in advance.
Put XP cdrom in, power back off.... Reboot the laptop holding down the F12 key (this will take you to your Boot Device Choices Menu)... From this window, select to boot from cdrom and press ok/enter....now don't take your eyes off the screen, it will ask you very quickly if you want to boot from cdrom and to press any key... When you see this, quickly press Any key..... Your Windows XP cdrom will begin setup...
At the first Screen it stops at, You will choose ESC to continue installing XP, Then Press ENTER to agree to thier terms, Then press F8, then Once you get to the screen that shows your Hard Drive Partitions, Delete the Main Drive Partition ,do this by selecting it, and pressing D, then L, then Enter....... then Press Enter again to start the XP Setup on that selected Partiton... It will then format the drive and install XP..

You need to download and burn the files on a CD or put on a Pin drive.
After installing windows XP, you will need to install all the XP drivers for that model.
Go to the manufacturers website, download all the chipset, bios,audio,network drivers, and video drivers they have for XP and Install them after installing windows XP.
Installing XP requires you to boot from the install CD, partition the Hard drive in the windows install. Then install, It will reboot after it finishes and restart, go into more installing and when its done, you should be able to go into windows wher you are going to start installing all those drivers.
Start with the Mother board chipsets and then the video , the audio and network.
After you get all those, run windows updates to get everything up to date. Then you can start installing other software like MS office and whatever else.
