It can be difficult to remove, your best trying to repair it with the same install disc first, or just forget it's there and you can manually delete the windows folders/files, removing can be tricky with dual boot unless you put it on a seperate drive then you can just format the drive it was on but backup your working OS first just in case, i had same issue and googled for long time and decided to leave it where it was in the end to avoid problems, there is a way to stop it showing up at boot up if your getting the option to boot from 2 OS but i forget how to remove this now, a quick google will show u.

Hi Sue,

Your problem isn't Microsoft it's the manufacturers, they will specifically code drivers and the hardware configs especially for Vista because that's what they ship with. Unfortunately there isn't alot you can do apart from trying a XP Pro disc with service pack 3 on it. Give that a go and if that doesn't work it maybe worth speaking to Microsoft directly for further assistance.

You need to have SATA drivers, before installing Windows XP. SATA drivers are not included in the CD, unlike Vista. There are many websites which explain how to include SATA drivers in your CD. You may have to find right SATA drivers depending on your laptop.
