No vista drivers will not be supported. Recently i did the same thing and ran into troube getting back to vista. Your best bet is to download software updates that are compatible with vista, most things are now. Or if you want to install something if you right click the intall file first and got to properties, then compatibility and change it ro run in xp sp2, apply, ok. see if this helps

Can windows XP be install on HP Pavilion dv7-1132nr with Vista OS

Yes, You can dual boot Windows XP and Vista but you'll be having problem finding drivers if you install Windows XP on this computer since Windows XP supported drivers aren't available on Hp download page. HP has only Windows Vista and Windows 7 drivers for this System.
Hope this helps.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Installing XP over preinstalled Vista

You can Install XP simply by inserting the Installation Disk and running the Install Program. When asked where you want to install it select C:\ and let it remove the existing Operating System.

PeepnLklown is correct that this MAY void your Warranty so check this out first. If this is not a problem, install XP as described.

As regards the Drivers, it is IMPORTANT to have the correct Drivers FOR THE OPERATIING SYSTEM INSTALLED, all your devices should have XP drivers listed on the Manufacturers sites - so Identify the components and download the drivers from the manufacturers site (this may not be Toshiba) before you install XP (to make sure that you will have the XP Drivers for the devices).

To identify the Devices - open Device Manager (If I remeber correctly this can be found in Control Centre under Administrative Tools) and open each of the devices which will display the manufacturer and model number of each device. Write these down and do a Google search with the following string:

(brand Name) (Model number) +driver

This should take you to the manufacturers Support site where you can download drivers. Check to see that XP is listed as one of the Operating Systems. Download the Driver and (when you have them all) burn them to a disk.

Install XP and when asked for the drivers, direct it to the disk you have burned to find the drivers. The DVD Burner may need to be searched for on the Internet (after you have Installed XP) before you can use this device to read the Disk.

Good luck.

How to install XP in toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop

You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.

V3424au presario notebook update

This is possible but will take some patience. Install Windows XP & Service Pack 2 Then check what drivers are NOT installed by going to device manager. Then go the the Compaq page that lists the drivers for Vista: Make a note of the name/model of these drivers and search for the XP equivelent usually by visitng the device manufacturers website. Im sorry this is complicated and long winded but its the only way.
