I'd reccomend backing up data and formatting your hard drive. Then install XP from disk and put data back on hard drive. You could use external hard drive or jumpdrive. It stands to reason that SATA works with XP, because the new computers I have seen have SATA and XP working conflict-free.

Yes you can't install Win xp in this PC, Even if you want to install then you have to down grade Your laptop BIOS and can only be install WIN XP SP3. But i will not suggest you to do that because your laptop is design for WIN 7 not for WIN XP.

Windows xp on aspire 5735z


Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)
Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device.

Well this error usually is because you have either a bad driver installed or you haven't installed any. Bad news is aspire 5735z is built for Windows Vista. Browsing the Acer website din't earn any results. Try calling in for the phone support they might have a link to where you can download compatible drivers for Windows XP.

Want to remove Win Vista and install Win XP on two computers


have or can you get a win 95/98 disk...
these disks utilize the dos enviroment...
when you boot with them you can easily get in the dos platform (c://prompt)
once there type in fdisk and follow instructions.
you can also do this from usb ..you need to make usb bootable first.
you may be able to use xp disk and choose repair which will take you to the dos prompt.
you may be able to format hd with vista disk and before it start to install files interrupt it(remove disk)
not advisable though.
if you want program to create bootable usb let me know.
I'll need youre email address to send via attachment.
