I think I understand you shakeylooney.
You are currently using Windows Vista edition operating system. There is more than one user running the computer & each user has their own Icon & user name. When you click your Icon what comes up next is windows wants your password. Once done windows continues into Vista with your personal settings loaded. Now, what you want to do is install Windows XP Professional with SP2 because you do not like windows Vista edition.
You need to understand that changing from windows Vista to Win XP Pro is considered a down grade according to windows.
It will not let you install XP Pro ontop of Vista.
When your PC boots to the Win Pro CD you will have to format the hard drive first just to get Professional to install. That means the drive will be completly erased. If you need certain data like address book. Favorits & programs with data in them I suggest you burn them to a CD first. If not than continue.
With your computer running put the windows XP Pro CD into your cdrom drive. Restart the computer. Just as your computer begains to start press the F8 key on the keyboard every 2 seconds. Whats called a boot menue will come up. This allows you to pick where you want windows to boot from. Pick the cdrom drive where Win Pro is. The CD will begain to install windows. It will see Vista & ask you want you want to do. Though it may suggest a repair, do not do that. It will fail. You want to Format the drive. It will list 2 types of Format. Quick or Full, pick Quick. Win XP Pro will than get down & install windows Pro edition. You did not mention what type your computer is. When Pro has finished you will most likely need drivers for the PC.

Trying to install xp on a vista

First, have you deleted Vista, or are you trying a dual boot?

Second, you do not have to disable your HDD or you cannot do the installation!

For a step by step procedure to install XP on a Vista computer (dual boot), please check here:

I do not recommend removing Vista completely,if that is what your laptop/PC came with, as most components and drivers installed will be Vista specific. If you need to have XP, make sure you have all the drivers for XP first.
