Hi,

You cannot downgrade Windows 7 from Windows XP by not reformatting the hard drive. You need to Remove Windows 7 first, before installing Windows XP Operating System. In order to use the Windows XP CD to fully reformat the Hard drive, follow the steps on the link below.

Im having problem with my laptop it wont work properly when i brought it to a technician he said it needs to be reformat my friend said i can do reformating my self but i dont know how can u help me. tnx.


Hello,

You can do it yourself. First backup all your data on a USB dribve or somewhere else.
Now Simply insert the CD/DVD of the OS which you want to install. (WIndows XP/Windows 7).
Make sure it should be bootable. Restart your machien and Let the Installation begin.. It will ask for you to press any key to Setup Continue.. Press any key. Now just follow the Steps as provided in the screen in third screen where get the option to choose C:\ or D:\ here you can choose C and use format option.

With regards
FIXYA team.

How to reformat back to windows vista ?


You need a windows Vista disc. Insert the disc and follow the prompts. I would format the hard drive instead of upgrading do a new install. The best way would be to go into your bios and make sure the boot device order has the cd-rom booting before the hard drive. Then put the disc in and start the computer, when it says press any key to boot from cd hit any key and let it load and then follow the prompts to install.

Backup all your data to a CD, or an online storage device such as http://skydrive.live.com/ (50MB Max limit), or search on google for "free online storage". Put in the Vista CD and restart your computer. Press F8 before Windows XP starts to load. Follow the steps to install Windows Vista. When it asks you, reformat your hardrive. WARNING: REFORMATING WILL ERASE ALL YOUR DATA, SO MAKE SURE YOU BACK UP YOUR IMPORTANT DATA BEFORE. You will then have a clean install of Vista which will allow your computer to run much faster. From there, you can restore/download your files that you backed up.
