Hi, if you have computer knowledge, the easiest thing to do is to take the laptop sata hard drive out and connect it to your computer with your sata cables and power and boot your computer up and the laptop drive will be a slave drive then. Now you can back it up if you want and then format it.

Now turn your computer off and put the hard drive back in your laptop. Because there in no Operating system the laptop will ask for a boot device. Now you will be able to boot from your xp cd.

I don't know why but I have found most laptops and computers with vista don't like to boot from a cd and over ride the boot options and go directly into vista which makes it hard for people who want to down grade to XP.

Why someone would want Vista beats me.

You can also load up into bios and change your boot options in there. If not already set as first boot device to be you cdrom/dvd you can change it to be. But like I said most of the time with Vista it doesn't matter! Vista will still boot first. But it is worth trying.

You need to go into the BIOS menu for the pc and change the boot sequence to cd-rom first. Usually it is the delete key that you need to press right when the computer boots up to enter the BIOS menu. Sometimes it is a different key like F10 or F12. You will need to watch the computer when it first boots up. When the Asus logo comes it it will say press " " key to enter setup. After you change the boot sequence make sure you exit with saving the changes. I suggest that you format and do a new install because many people who have downgraded from Vista to Xp have issues with drivers ect.

My ASUS R1F-K049E Tablet does not have sound. what do i do?


Reinstall your sound driver. If you do not have the CD that came with the motherboard, then you can downlooad the sound driver from Asus.

Go to the following link and type in R1F in the box (top left corner) where it reads "Input model to search for" Next box, select "All" it will ask for your operating system, and then give you the drivers (including audio)

I need to install an operating system on a Samsung q1 ultra


Suggest you use an external DVD drive, and put your installation disk in it. Then access the BIOS Setup utility.

In BIOS Setup, find the Boot Order menu. (Generally, along the top headings of the main menu, in BIOS Setup, or located in Advanced BIOS Settings) Set the first boot device to be CDROM. Be sure to Save your change.
This way the handheld, will boot from the installation disk, in your external DVD drive.

Should you be trying to downgrade from Vista to XP, you have to change the first boot device, in Boot Order to CDROM. If not, Vista won't let you overwrite it.
Vista is an upgrade over XP.
