I want to get rid of windows vista and install windows xp


I suggest to upgrade to Windows 7 instead of downgrading because Windows 7 has better performance than Vista. But if you still want to go to Windows XP you have 2 choices.
The first is to format the drive where Vista is installed and to install fresh copy of Windows XP.
Second choice is to install Windows XP as second OS and at the end of the installation, at activation step, you have to choose activation by Phone. Then you should call Microsoft Helpdesk and provide the code of your Windows XP to the operator and tell him that you need downgrading Vista code. Then he will guide you to the rest of the activation and the downgrade of Vista.

Good luck!

How do I uninstall vista from advent t2250 laptop and install xp


Just Get the original Windows XP disc and boot the PC. It will just overwrites the XP over Vista and formates disc C. But the problem is might be that some new models are designed for Vista and after you erased it you might be having problems with downloading extra drivers for your laptop.
These drivers are included in your boot DVD which you got then buying the laptop, but they are Vista drivers. You will need to download XP drivers from microsoft website and sometimes there will be a compartibility issues
Good Luck

Deleting my C drive


Hey,

Unfortunately, windows stores the start up files in the first drive, thats most likely c.. What you can do is. You can delete the windows vista folder from c drive. And then you need to edit the boot ini file so it automatically starts up xp.

Basicly in xp, delete everything related to vista, the windows folder and applications on vista. be carefull not to delete anything important. Ones you have cleaned the c drive of vista, by hand, you can erase the vista startup entry by

press start -> run -> type in msconfig
f03d684.jpg
as you can see I also have a few windowses installed, haven't bothered to clean up due to 1 000 GB drive :-P Anyways just click check boot paths, it should find that the vista is now invalid since you deleted the folder, now it wont bother you at the start up.

Sorry but right now I don't have a good method of moving the bootup files from C to D and then erasing the C drive.. without reinstalling xp on the c drive. Its pretty complex.

let me know if any problems come up.

Win vista uninstall


Put your window XP disk into the Disk drive. Start up your computer. When it asks you what Drive you want to install it on select C:\ (where Vista is) Say yes to deleting the current Operating System and follow the instructions from there.

You did say you wanted to Uninstall Vista!

If you mean Dual Boot Vista and XP, then you will need to create a Logical Partition of about 10 Gb to install XP on and when asked where to install select this partition. But note that XP will wipe the Boot sector clean of all other Operating Systems which means that if you want to Dual boot then you will have to reinstall Vista again to get Dual Boot functionality.
