I did it on my laptop because I dont like vista either. Just make sure to look up all the drivers for your hardware before you reformat the system. Most drivers are available in the XP version. Then just reload it and put on the correct drivers.

How to downgrade vista to winxp pro at Hp pavilion DV4-1204TU ?

Well, this may make you think twice:

I bought a presario from circuit city last year, and I paid $200 to downgrade to XP. Everything was fine until it crashed last week. IT went completely bizzerk. HP won't provide support, cause I changed it. Circuit City is out of business, not much help there.

Basically, I am completely #$%%@@.

I am now paying to get Vista put back in. :-(

WI-FI not working

If your computer came with Vista there are no drivers for your wireless card. You can partition your hard drive into 2 logical drives and load Vista on one and XP on the other in a dual boot configuration. Then you will need to purchase an external USB wireless thumb adapter for accessing your wireless networks when you are using the XP operating system. When you boot in Vista your computers wifi will work fine. The hardware manufacturers are being forced by Microsoft not to release drivers for XP for new equipment under threat to pull licensing for Vista. This is the only way to get around it, unless you are capable of writing your own .inf driver files for the hardware. If you need my help feel free to contact me and I will help you further. This is Microsoft's way of strong arming everyone to migrate to Vista. I run dual boot configurations on all my equipment because some of my expensive tech software only runs in the XP environment. Vista is a powerful operating system if you have the equipment designed for it. It's a shame the removed so much of the backward compatability though. My e-mail address is if you need more help send me your number and I will call you for free to discuss your options in more detail. Please take the time to rate this fixya and I will provide you with free support whenever you need it directly.

Change vista to xp on acer laptop

see if there are any drivers in XP for this model to start- if there are not- you are NOT able to convert it back to XP at ALL. Check with acer's tech support to see if it is possible to get drivers or if it is possible to convert it back to xp. Good luck- I'm seeing this problem a lot at the moment and the manufacturers do not care about people that hate vista.
