Question about HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook

What do you think about downgrading OS from Vista to XP???

What problems might there be? I am having a "pro" do this. He assures me that all the bells and whistles that came with the laptop will work with the properly installed drivers.
I hate vista! not user friendly!

    Yes, this is what I plan to do. I found someone to do it for me. I just wanted some insight from anyone that has changed OS and how that went.

    thanks

Changing OS from windows vista to xp


You can install xp on a vista laptop, you will need an xp install cd and you will need to backup your data (it will be erased in the downgrade process). As for the drivers, go to your laptops manufactures site. They will have a support section for your laptop model where you can see if there are drivers for xp. If you have the hardware that will support windows 7, I would go with that. Xp is slow and no longer supported by Microsoft as of April 2014, which poses a security risk. Windows 7 will be supported for a while and is faster and more stable than xp or vista.

Down grade windows 7 to xp pro on toshiba l505 s5990 need wifi and lan drivers


In my view, you should not downgrade Windows 7 to Windows Vista! Windows Vista is a freaky OS and don't support many software tools ! Later you will upgrade yourself! Try Windows XP, not Vista! :)

Sorry to inform you that there is no full version of windows XP which is downloadable, because all the OS products of Microsoft are need a license so you need to buy a license windows XP OS, remember that their is no piracy policy.

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. :-(

How want to downgrade win vista to xp pro hp compaq v3000


If you have a Windows XP Pro installation disk, put it in the optical drive, restart your computer, on startup, go to BIOS settings (usually press [Delete] and set the optical drive as first boot device. Save changes and exit. When the computer starts it usually says to press any key to start from CD. Press any key and the windows installation will start. Make sure you format C: and you will downgrade to Windows XP Pro. If you want to upgrade to Vista again, you will need to know the keyboard sequence to start Vista from Its partition or have Vista install disk.

Downgrading vista to xp


Now you need to find a Windows XP install disk that can match the licence number printed on the sticker at the back of the laptop and reinstall XP using your serial key.
You will have to download and install also the XP drivers, you find them on manufacturer website.

See links below on reinstalling XP on a Vista system:
