Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional for PC

Installing Windows XP alongside Vista

Our office computers use XP with Netware software for the server. We recently got a new PC which came with Vista. But there's no Netware Client software for Vista.
I don't particularly want to lose the Vista software and understand you can run XP on a separate partition. However, when I try to install XP (which seems to be product specific, ie Hyunju), it wants to wipe the hard drive on the new computer.

    Thanks, goldflack.

    However, we don't have the vista software - new PCs come with the OS installed and no disks. So, if I wipe the HD to install XP, Vista is gone.

    Also, the XP software I have is product-specific and may not want to install on our new PC.

Greetings - Regarding Win 7 machines connecting to Netware 4.11, you need to setup TCP/IP on the server and connect Windows 7 via TCP/IP.

Windows Vista home + Windows XP Professional Networking issue


Make sure domain settings to your server are correct on the notebook computer. These settings are located in the control panel of the system setting.

Whats the operating system of your server?

Make sure the firewall in windows security is turned off too. Sometimes that thing sneaks up on you.

I haven't used the home edition of Vista but another reason why it might not be working is because it isn't the business version. Microsoft might have added extra security to prevent the home version from connecting to a server. I know we use the business version of Vista at work and it is working that way on the intranet server without a problem.

I would check with Microsofts website on that.

Upgrading windows xp to vista


You can upgrade from your current edition of Microsoft Windows XP or Windows 2000 to a corresponding or better edition of Windows Vista by purchasing and installing an upgrade copy of Windows Vista.
While selecting the edition of Windows Vista that's right for you, it's important to clearly understand what hardware your PC will need to ensure the features you want will run reliably.
