Hi there.
Yes you probably can downgrade to XP but before you do make sure your system supports XP first because you may find XP installs but the drivers maybe hard to find is at all.

I can't upload john deere drive green on my computer witch runs vista but it worked on the inlaws computer which is XP and the game says it should work on vista


Hello, If you have a program running programs since you've started using Vista, you may be able to fix that easily by running the program in XP mode.
Step 1
Locate the program you want to run, right click on the program's icon on the desktop, or in the start menu.
Step 2 Once you right click on the icon, click on properties at the bottom of the window that comes up.
Step 3 In properties, click on the Compatibility tab. Check "run this program in compatibility mode" and select Windows XP in the drop down menu. Also at the bottom of the compatibility tab, check "run this program as administrator".
Running as administrator will cause windows to ask if it's okay to open the program everytime you click to open the program. Nothing wrong with it, but just be aware.

How do i remove windows vista and install windows xp with out losing all my other stuff


If your Vista still work, go to the control panel> administrative tools> computer management > disk management > create an additional partition (larger then my documents folde size)
Move your files to this partition then install xp.

A few tips
  • Make sure there xp drivers for each componenet
  • Use driver magician and find xp drivers (check the pc mfg site and download all xp drivers and put them on this partiton too.
  • Use a partition program (dos) and format the vista partition and the hidden partition that vista creates or xp won't go in properly

I have recently purchsed a toshiba a500 03p with vista home premium, how do i roll back to xp? I have xp rollback discs


In order to switch from Vista to XP, you will need to basically erase Vista and install XP.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean when you say you have XP rollback discs but, you will need an actual Windows XP installation disc and product key.

First make sure the BIOS in your pc is configured so that the first boot device is your cd /dvd drive.

Insert the XP cd in the cd /dvd drive and reboot the pc. Your pc should then boot from the cd and enter the text based portion of the XP setup program.

Press the F8 key to accept the licensing agreement and then wait for the setup program to load the files it will need to continue the installation of XP.

Once the necessary files are loaded the setup program will check for an existing installation of Windows and will identify the partition where Vista is installed and ask where you want to install XP.

This is where you want to pay close attention to the information provided on the screen. What you want to do is to delete the partition where Vista is installed and then create a new partition. This will remove Vista from your pc.

After the new partition has been created, you can then install XP onto it. The setup program will copy the files needed for XP to operate and will reboot your pc so it can enter the graphical portion of the setup program.

The graphical portion of the setup program is where you'll enter the product key and then the installation will continue installing the necessary files until it get finished.

Once completed, Vista will be gone and XP will be your operating system.

Since that program is a fake antispyware program, I'm not surprised it is causing problems.

Purchased computer model Elite 9070a have been well serviced with HP products this being 3rd HP computer we have purchased. However am very disalusioned with Vista program and wish to replace with windows...


You sound like you tried to install XP with Vista running - this will generate the message that you have received.

To install XP on your system, insert your XP disk into the computer and then restart it.

Select Boot From Disk during start up and this will lead you into the XP Installation.

Xp will not recognise Vista and will just overwrite it - deleting the current OS and formatting the C:\

Good luck.
