Basically you've got to take your XP cd and modify it to work correctly with your laptop.

Have you already tried using just a regular XP cd? If it didn't work it's because your laptop harddrive is SATA and not IDE. The XP cd doesn't come with the correct drivers so when you finish installing XP a blue screen of death will come up and prevent you from loading Windows.

Here's a basic guide on how to do it.

If this sounds complicated then I would suggest sticking with Vista.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Best of luck!

Changing Vista to XP Pro on a Compaq Presario SR2180NX Desktop PC


SR2180NX has the Vista 32Bit OS from HP. The restore partition will always put Vista 32Bit back on if you use it. Windows XP can only be put on from scratch and I have done it while I still have Vista installed. One problem: there are no XP drivers under SR2180NX webpages. Do your research on the parts that are installed in the 2180 and any other HP machines that have the Windows XP operating system as the OEM OS. But First, check the Intel Site for the 945 chipset drivers (include the SouthBridge, too) under XP. Get them downloaded to a CD and burn the rest of the drivers you find for XP on the same CD. This way, you will have them ready when you are performing the down-grade to windows xp. After you are done with the XP install, you will still have access to the files & work you had done while in Vista. The Vista files are still readable. You might want to consider getting the Windows 7 Professional (not basic) available October 22, 2009. AND you will still have to get the Intel Downloads for Win7 any way, so why not make it a project and make it last for a few years. XP Support stops in 2014.

I m looking for recovery cd of my notebook TX 1301.


HP TX1301 - you should have got one with your computer or at least a utility on your computer which creates recovery discs using your own blank discs.

See this for Windows XP http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&docname=bph08097

Windows Vista
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&cc=us&dlc=&product=81351&docname=c00810334

If you are running Vista and you cant boot your computer , insert the vista installation disc into the drive , start the computer off the install disc , click repair my computer when you get the "Install Now" option to access vistas recovery tools from the disc

I have a game which doesn't play on windows vista, i have acer aspire 3683wxmi laptop?


Is this some kind of problem for you? Vista is fierce serious! Perhaps it does something more disruptive than playing, though?
