Re: cant install windows vista getting error message in...
The only thing I can think of for an error of this kind would be faulty media. I would suggest getting ahold of another copy of the Windows Vista Install disc. Note that it matters not what Version the Install disc is, you have the Windows Key you need to use, it will install the correct version on its own.

try repairing the file system using chkdsk with /f switch. However, it is strongly recommended to run this tool only if you have a full data backup . To do so, click \'Start\' and then \'Run\'. You can then type \'chkdsk /f <drive name>\' in the \'Open\' box and click OK. Here, the drive name should be exactly what is appearing in error message. Alternatively, you can opt for deleting the corrupt partition provided the backup is available. If no good backup exists, you should consider to use a Windows Data Recovery utility. These are powerful and valid Windows partition recovery utilities built to scan the corrupt or deleted partitions and safely recover the lost data. The applications are easy to install and use.
If you have Windows Vista Home Basic Then any attempt to install XP will be disasterous! You can thank Microsoft for this bit of chicanery.They want you to stay with Vista and so the boards fitted do not accept XP drivers
All is fine up to that point into the setup because it's generic up to that point. The chipset on the motherboard is not supported by windows 7 at this point. It is not the harddrive that's not compatible but is the chipset in the board that supports the operation of the drive. The compatibility wizard is causing all kinds of problem for MS. It could just be one little chip in the board that is hanging up your install. There are many topics if you Google Windows 7 forced install. People are saying some forced installs are working and some are not. Good luck
Hi, Pop the disk in the drive and set off your install. When the setup gets to the part where it asks you where you would like to install XP you will need to delete the C drive partition, format the partition and install XP. XP from a clean install only takes 3GB of hard drive space, so unless you are trying to install XP on a drive which is only 2GB then you have no chance until you get a bigger capacity hard drive.
The information will be there at the beginning of setup telling you how many partitions you have (if any) and how big the drive is.
Remember that you need to delete the partitions that holds the older operating system as all the information is still on the drive, deleting the partition will permanently delete the information.
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.
