Do you want to replace vista or run double OS's, in other words you would be prompted to select either or operating system to use prior to loading screen.

Bsod is hp compacq...why??can't change my OS from VISTA to XP???why??

If you are downgrading your OS from Vista to XP, you have to repartition & reformat your HDD before fresh installing Win XP OS. BSOD is due to drivers installed which is not compatible to you hardware,

You have to check if any drivers for XP is available for your laptop model @ HP Support
You can use the "Service Tag" for your search to locate the exact model.

Hope it helps.

Downgrade to XP

Looks like they do not have very many drivers listed for XP on their site, but all of them (obviously) for Vista. I would recommend you not downgrade to XP with that particular laptop. Sorry!
