    just bought a gateway laptop with vista on it. I want to make a dual boot up system. the problem that i have having is. when i put my xp disk it will not find the hard drive. I found a program that you can use when loading setup files for a sata hard drive. but xp still will not find my hard drive?

    any idea?

Make sure you have taken all the backup of your data from your system bcoz xp will not overwrite on vista you need to be format your drive which will erase your data. for installing windowx xp you need win xp cd as well as all the driver for win xp bcoz the driver is diffrent for vista and win xp . if you have windows xp bootable cd just place in your cd-rom or in dvd rom .and go to bios setup (bios setup is just press the del button from your keyboard or f2 key it is display whrn you start your system )and change the booting sequnce from hdd to cd rom when it will boot from cd one massage will come press any key to continue just press the space bar and follow the setup instruction . if you need more help let me know bye

SOURCE: How to install XP on pre loaded Vista in HP Laptop

I bought a cheap Compaq laptop that came with Vista Home Premium. The speed was horrendous! Anyway, I received the same no hard drive found error. To solve the problem, I went into the system config (BIOS) by pressing F10 on startup, and turned off SATA hard drive support (its supposed to make the hard drive run faster), I rebooted, inserted my Win XP Pro disc and viola, it detected the hard drive. I would say that the laptop runs a good 40% faster than before. Vista is a big no no when it comes to low end laptops built for word processing and internet browsing.

My compaq presario v3700 windows xp laptop audio is not working.


I see that your Laptop was not pre-installed with XP, it was with Vista. Installing XP on it, will be a downgrade which is not recommended by them (HP). In HP Laptops, there is always trouble making the device and drivers work with retail version OS.

Anyways, I got the audio driver for XP, you can give it a try....

The Audio is a High definition Audio and we can not install the Audio driver ditectly without installing the UAA (Universal Audio Architecture) driver in Windows XP. So, first install UAA driver (restart) then install Audio driver (restart).

UAA driver:
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp33501-34000/sp33566.exe

Audio driver:
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp32501-33000/sp32864.exe

Installation of Windows XP Pro on Hp Pavilion laptop


what is the error message that you're getting.. usually windows vista will not downgrade your operating system to windows xp. You may need to remove vista before you can load xp.
make sure to save a back up of all of your important files before you do that.
