You can keep both Vista and XP. Below is the way to install XP, after Vista was already installed... creating a dual boot. First find the drivers for your network components, wireless card or nic, and save them to an external device such as a floppy disk or flash drive. Then you will need to go into the BIOS on your computer startup. Scroll to the System Configuration tab and go down to the SATA Native Support and change its setting to Disabled. Then hit F10 to Save and Exit. Next, insert your Windows XP CD and create the partition you wish to install XP on. After the installation is complete you should boot automatically into XP. Now you need to move some files. First, make sure you have set your folder options to see hidden files and to show protected operating system files. Then open Windows Explorer and go to the drive where Vista is installed. Copy the folder Boot, and the files bootmgr, boot.ini, NTDETECT.COM and ntldr and paste them to the root of your XP drive. Then download Vista Boot Pro and save it to your desktop or somewhere else that you can easily access. Unless you already have .Net Framework (v2.0 at least) it will redirect you to a Microsoft page where you can download this necessary component. Install and run Vista Boot Pro and open the "Bootloader" tab. Select "Reinstall the Vista bootloader" and press Apply. Then go to the Manage OS Entries tab and select "Add new operating system entry" and make sure you select "Windows Legacy". Give the new entry a name (ie: Windows XP) and select the drive letter you have XP on and then select Apply. You can also choose which entry you would like as the default the system will boot to. And now you should be able to dual boot between Vista and a previous OS. Thank you! Sabharish

Please consult links here, here and here before you make this change, as the functionality of your system could be adversely affected. Make sure you can acquire all needed drivers before you abandon vista. For a tutorial on updating drivers see here.
If you're having issues with vista performance, consider upgrading your ram, make sure you have all the latest driver updates, as a lot of manufacturers took some time to get their drivers up to snuff after vista was released,
See MS articles on vista performance here,
and a very helpful vista forum here.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

Sounds like you need to install the driver. Here is the HP download driver page for your model ( the driver is called "ENE CIR Receiver" ). Just hit the download button. Once it has finished downloading, if it does not start up (self extract) just find the file on your hard drive and double click!

Also, there might be other software that you need to get it to work, so here's the link for the whole list of drivers, software and tools that you might need or may want! When you go to this link, it will give you a list of windows systems, click one the operating system you are using ( 7 in this case, but you still need to choose if yours is 32bit orb64bit ). This will take you to the list for YOUR laptop specific( Hp pavilion DV5-1002au ) software!:

Hi,

I think the problem with your laptop is that the operating system on your laptop is corupt, that is why the windows is not responding.
I will advice you reinstall the operating system on your laptop, if the operating system can be reinstall, the windows should work fine and respond.

Operating system


first of all you will have to format your laptop cause when you have vista u cant install xp with it
u will have to install xp first and then install vista
about the driver u will have to do some settings in cmos setup and will have to change hdd type
that will solve your driver problem
so first install xp and then install vista
regarding drivers for xp u will have to visit hp website and chat with a online technical person and ask him to mail you the link for drivers for xp
