You could setup a dual boot system, this requires a fairly large hard disk and you need installation XP and Vista CDs.
The other option is to install XP only on your hard disk.

Laptop hard disk using vista


First of all, you need the password. If the password was set in the BIOS, you'll have to take it to a Tech for disassembly so they can reset the password from the motherboard jumper set. If it's a Windows password for windows logon, Boot from the Windows CD and run FDISK to format and wipe the Hard drive for a New Windows Installation. You'll need to "Partition" the Hard Disk for Multiple Operating Systems.

If Vista is running, Login and goto Control Panel. Select Help and enter "Multiple Operating Systems" in the Search box. The information you need is there for Vista.

Dell XPS M1330 Laptop can't boot to windows, when running express test, got error code 0F00:137B when re-install the vista, it stop at "Expanding files (0%)" long time ...


if you bought this from dell, use the restore disks that came with it starting with disk one. you wont be able to save your files bt at least you will have a usable computer. i have an XPS studio 16 and had to do the same thing.
