On your laptop it is possible but I always advice that you get a genuin OS.

But installing Windows XP might require you installing some drivers for your laptop hardware to work compatibly with XP.

Great idea. You can contact me further at onifadeadewunmi@hotmail.com

Cheers and rate this please.

Yes you can add another OS provided you have another drive/ partition and an original Windows XP OS.
If another OS is installed in the system then you might void the warranty.

Yes you can install winxp if you have winxp bootable disk.
Boot your computer with winxp disk.
For that insert winxp disk into cd or dvd rom then when you power up press F8 or F5 or F12 to get first boot option then set first boot as your cd or dvd rom then you can boot computer with disk.

http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9108198/Microsoft_offers_free_Vista_to_XP_downgrade_help
Obviously, the most convenient way to downgrade is to do so without reformatting. In order to do that, you need to have a real retail CD of Windows XP. If all you have is a recovery disk that came with your computer, you’re not going to be able to do it this way. You will need to reformat.
To downgrade, use the following as a guide:

  1. Do a full backup of your current, Vista system. If something happens, you can always revert to the backup.
  2. Boot your computer off the Windows XP disc. Just pop the CD into the CD-ROM and reboot. If, for some reason, your computer boots without looking for the CD drive, you need to go into your system BIOS and change the boot order so that it checks for the CD drive during the boot process.
  3. When the computer asks to press the space bar to boot from the CD, do so.
  4. When Windows XP Setup starts up, press “R” to enter the recovery.
  5. If it asks you to choose a Windows installation, press a number and hit Enter. The likely number will be 1.
  6. If you get asked for an Administrator password, enter when asked. If you do not know it, you will need to abort and go back into Windows Vista to get your password.
  7. At the command prompt, we’re going to use the “fixboot” command. We’ll use the following commands in sequence to prep for XP:
  8. fixboot
    fixmbr
    cd \
    ren windows winvista
    exit

Sir i have hp pavilion6 laptop .and used windows 7 os but it has corrrupted now i wish to install windows xp or xp proffesional .and when i put the xp os cd it has not boot from cd wheather xp suitable for...


Hello,
You need to change the boot order in bios so that the computer starts from CD-rom. Then if it still doesn't start the cd, make it so that it only starts from cd and not the hard drive.
if its still not working theres a problem with the cd try another one.
let me know how you get along with it.

Hp psc 750 printer with Vista system


The printer/scanner/copier will work with Windows Vista stated on:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00808543&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=57769&lang=en

You don't need the drivers, only for Windows 98SE to Windows XP, Mac OS 9 to Mac OS X, and Linux. Vista is 100% compatible with the HP PSC 750. Windows XP, same thing as Vista, but XP still needs the drivers to work, or not.
