Question about Toshiba Satellite L45-S7409 Notebook PC
My Toshiaba Sattelite laptop model L45-S7409 was supplied with Windows Vista i am used to work with Windows Xp now i wish to install Xp but the system dont let it install or support Xp
Please help . . . . . !! !!! !!!!
Well, this should be fun! your toshiba (i have an older one-m35x- came with xp home). i'm sure yours came with a restore disk with vista on it, so that's no use to you, considering the circumstances. i have several friends that gave up on vista, and changed back to xp!
sort of the windows me2000 for the later part of the first decade of the 21st century!
1st you need to back up any important files to an external hdd, large capacity thumb-drive, optical drive (cd or dvd). then find my computer- should be on desk-top, right click on your hdd and click on 'format hard-drive'. choose 'fast format' and ntfs. if you want partitions- choose # and size. i assume your hdd has a large capacity, but unless you want to install another OS (Linux), or use another partition to back-up your main partition, then don't bother.
format your hdd, and then install xp.this is gonna' take some time! i assume you have a legal version of xp. if not, turn off auto windows updates, or they'll give you some grief! the firewall should be alright.
once you get everything working- as far as xp is concerned (reinstall wireless connectivity, etc.), put in your device with backups from vista, and hope xp will accept them! make sure you saved your contacts list, and favorites from whatever browser you were using on vista- i prefer mozilla firefox, myself! hell with ie!
