Question about Compaq Computers & Internet
If the laptop has a Vista sticker on its base, then the BIOS is programmed to accept Vista and only Vista. The only way to install XP on that machine is if HP has a BIOS update for that model in their support files. If they do, download the BIOS file and install it. Reboot and if the machine boots up and stabilizes, shut down, insert the XP installation key and reboot.
