    did format drive.With HP you have to use xp with sp2 and you must disable native sata in BIOS.For anyone who encounters this problem in future.

If you do this you may lose some drivers in the change !! But anyway boot up computer as its comes up to boot press F2 (A COUPLE TIMES)! Ok when you get to bios, find boot order . when you look at boot order , the disk should boot first and the HDD SECOND! FOLLOW the directions at the bottom of to save changes and exit. OR to make changes to a item! Or use escape/f10 on most ! Then put your disk in the drive and follow directions through the program !

Windows xp cannot be installed on a system with pre loaded vista . because the boot loader of xp is older than vista as it cannot create boot loader . the order of installing operating systems is from LOWER 2 HIGHER ie XP to VISTA . first of all u nedd to format drive containing vista and then try installing xp

Instal xp pro on sata drive


Either a) get your hands on an XP Pro SP2 CD, b) press F6 to load the proper SATA drivers when prompted (drivers located at: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNFZ283BN&upd_id=2769&os_id=29), or c) build your own bootable XP Pro CD with the SATA drivers already slipstreamed into it by following the directions at http://maxeasyguide.blogspot.com/2008/04/preparations-for-winxp-installation-cd.html.

How instile MS xp for notebook CP


If you have Vsta already loaded on your laptop and want to get rid of it, in favor of XP Pro, you must do a few things.
1 - determine if there are any files you need to keep, like documents (Word, etc.) or spreadsheets (Excel XLS, etc.) and like that.
2 - use a DVD-R or RW and write all the critical documents to the DVD so that you don't lose them in this process. Do a simple Copy from Windows Explorer.
3 - once all has been saved, the easiest way to accomplish what you want, is to boot the laptop using a legal Microsoft XP Pro CD or DVD, then follow the instructions to creating a bootable version of XP Pro on the lapop.
4 - you will need to decide if you want to have a dual-boot system or only an XP Pro system.
5 - if you want dual boot, follow the instructions; if XP Pro only, then follow those instructions. They should all reside on the XP Pro installation disk.

But remember that XP Pro is an older OS than Vista, so your installation media will only be able to get you so far. I would recommend following the instructions to creating an XP Pro bootable laptop only, and that means to then format the entire C drive, and then use the install media to create an XP Pro C Drive.

6 - go from there to an XP Pro laptop.
7 - as soon as the system is finished, and stable, rather than starting to install all the applications you want, like Office or other applcations, go to Microsoft's update site and update your XP Pro laptop to the newest versions of those things which will protect your system from outside problems. Update the protection applications from Microsoft first. Let the Update Site recommend, and choose from that list.

If you're going to install an anti-virus, like Norton AV, then start by installing the newest version of Norton AV or 360 or Internet Protection, etc. Then, go to the Symantec/Norton site, and update all those applications, too, especially the latest virus definitions or signatures.

Do it that way, to ensure your system is built slowly and with the most safety possible.

Be careful, and deliberate, and make sure you do not rush through this process, as it is extremely important to do it right, right from the start.

Good luck!

Touchpad not working after re-install windows XP SP2.


You can't load Windows XP over Vista. Microsoft has it in the BIOS that it cannot be overlaid with an older system. The only way to use XP is to attempt to dual-boot but that will take you some research. Load vista back...don't blame me Microsoft screwed us..

Pls rate solution.
