Caution: If you have anything on the cmputer (docs, contacts,photos, etc.) save themn to a disk or flashdrive before you start as they will be lost forever with the reformat.
Do you have an XP cd and cd key code? If so , put it in and restart the computer , if the computer asks you if you want to boot to the cd , click yes. If it doesn't ask you that, then you will need to enter the bios and change the "boot order" so that the computer reads the CD rom BEFORE the harddrive.
Once this is set , boot to the XP cd, it will ask you questions as it starts and load a bunch of drivers so the system functions without the operating system before the OS is installed , this is normal.
When you get to the part about partitioning you want to del the old partition, then create a new one with the new space, then format using the NTFS files system. this takes a while to complete, at this point it will take you right into the install. you may need to download individual drivers for your motherboard and hardware installed and install those before you update windows completely. Then do your microsoft updates, then load the drivers for your printers, fax, flashdrive , etc..
Post again if you need more help.. also might include some model numbers of your computer and I can help you with more specific instructions..
Regards...

You may need to check to see which "service pack" you are currently on.

See below requirements:

System Software — Windows XP & Vista
  • Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition
    • 32-bit OS Installation Only
  • Windows XP Professional or Home Edition
    • With Windows XP Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3

  • Not Supported:
    • Windows Vista 64-bit (any version)
    • Windows XP Professional x64 Edition
    • Windows XP Media Center Edition
    • Windows 98, Me, 2000, NT, 95, 3.1, DOS

  • Not Tested:
    • Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition
    • Although Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition have not been tested or qualified by Digidesign, there are currently no known issues with Vista Home and Home Premium 32-bit operating systems and Pro Tools M-Powered 7.4 compared to the supported Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition operating systems.

Windows Vista SP1
There are currently no known issues with Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista based on our initial limited testing and customer feedback. Although full qualification with all Digidesign products has not been completed, we do not recommend against updating to SP1, given the number of important overall system fixes in SP1. We do recommend that you backup your system and create a restore point before updating to SP1, should you encounter any problems after installing the update.

Xp & vista toghether


You will need to partition your hard drive into two bootable partitions. Install Vista on one partition and XP on the other. This will make your system a dual boot system. Hope this helps.
