Downgrading from Windows Vista to Windows XP

Have purchased an eMachine ET-1161-05 that was loaded with Vista-Home. My legacy hardware requires Windows XP so I removed Vista.

There are a couple of devices within the ET system that require drivers
but the eMachine support site on lists downloads for Vista.

The divices include: Generic IEEE 1284.4 Printer Support, PCI Bridge,
PCI Device, SM Bus Controller & USB Controller.

Is there a site that has the drivers needed for the above items that are compatible with XP-Professional?

Thank you.

I am looking for scsi and raid drivers and 5 drivers that are updated more than what i have


If your system is still running the same hardware as when you bought it, you should be able to download the drivers at the eMachines support website at.

http://www.emachines.com/support/drivers.html

In the menu, click the following options

1. Desktop
2. ET Series
3. ET1161

Unfortunately they only have vista drivers available. eMachines tends not to smile on users using anything but the given OS, so you are out of luck if you want XP drivers for the system.

I down loaded drivers for emachine t2460 they are in another pc in zip folders, how do i get them on a cd to load them in the emachine t2460 windows xp


Skip the CD and use a USB thumbdrive. They are cheap and can be purchased nearly anywhere now, including most groceries and hardware stores. You will find it a whole lot easier to work with as well.

If you have Windows Vista Home Basic Then any attempt to install XP will be disasterous! You can thank Microsoft for this bit of chicanery.They want you to stay with Vista and so the boards fitted do not accept XP drivers

How to change vista operating system to xp windom


You will need to purchase a legal copy of windows XP and install the software. Installing will erase everything on your computer so make sure you back up all of your information.

You can purchase Windows XP Home (cheapest) or Pro at newegg.com or any electronics store.

Upgrading the OS Windows XP not possible


Upgrading from OS Windows XP:

you can upgrade from Windows XP to Windows Vista(ultimate, premium, home, business.......),
you have to buy a Windows Vista CD and install a fresh copy or format.

Some Minimum Requirements:

i) Min 2GB RAM or atleast 1GB RAM(if you have>1GB RAM installation of Windows Vista will not continue)

II) External Graphic Card. for some versions of Windows Vista(to run Aero Interface, special feature only   in some versions of Windows Vista)

NOTE:

"Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor" is a software from Microsoft which you can download from internet, this  can help you determine which features and edition of Windows Vista will run on your computer. 

 i.e., when u load this software on windows xp it will suggest which upgrade version of windows vista          will suit your system(based on you system configuration. or hardware components.) and then            you can install the upgraded version of windows xp(mostly windows vista home,.........)


Thanking You
