Hello Paulraven,
You can use an external USB DVD ROM drive, put the Vista disk in it and you will be able to install it via USB (once XP is fully Booted).
If you want to Boot to the Vista disk using a USB port, then you should check your Boot Order in your BIOS and make sure that you set it to check CD/DVD drives before the hard drive, then you'll be able to touch any key on reboot to Boot to CD for a few seconds when that option appears on your screen (at the top left of the screen) after a Boot/re Boot with the Vista disk in the USB DVD drive.
I hope this helps, and Good Luck.

Bsod is showing...in hp compacq...why??can't change my OS from VISTA to XP???why??


If you are downgrading your OS from Vista to XP, you have to repartition & reformat your HDD before fresh installing Win XP OS. BSOD is due to drivers installed which is not compatible to you hardware,

You have to check if any drivers for XP is available for your laptop model @ HP Support
You can use the "Service Tag" for your search to locate the exact model.

Hope it helps.

How can i install vista in my lenovo g550.i have installed xp priviously, but,now want to install vista in it.i have the copy of vista home premium os cd. please help me.


1. Backup all your files. Windows XP has a "Files and Settings Transfer Wizard" under System Tools under Accessories under All Program. Use it to create one (large) file -- copy that file to a DVD-recordable disk or to a USB memory-stick or to an external disk-drive.
2. Verify that you can read that file -- writing a "bad" copy would be horrific.
3. Access the LENOVO web-site -- looking for device-drivers for your model of Lenovo,
that will not be contained on the Vista CD. Download them, and save them to a CD-recordable disk (not a USB disk -- you may need these device-drivers, in order to enable the USB ports after installing Vista).
4. Insert the Vista CD. It should "autorun" something, asking your permission to start the installation of Vista.
5. Follow the on-screen prompts.
6. After the install completes, use "Windows Update" several times, to get all the security-fixes that have been issued since the release of your Vista CD.

I need the program makstripeexplorer for my magnetic credit card reader writer


According to the web-site: http://makstripe.com/makstusbe.php3

MAKStripe USB is controlled with the software "MAKStripeExplorer" for Windows NT / 2000 / XP / Vista, Linux, Windows Mobile 5/6 and Mac OS X operating system, which is supplied with MAKStripe USB.

In order to provide the opportunity for development of own software, we are also delivering with MAKStripe USB the library "libmakstripe.a" for Windows NT / 2000 / XP / Vista, for Linux and for Mac OS X with the appropriate header file "makstripe.h".
Using the library "libmakstripe.a", it is possible to integrate and control MAKStripe USB with own code as for example in a application for access control or payment system in a shop and in any other environment, where magneticstripe cards are used and the data should be processed through own software.

Problem installing xp


i would not advise trying to install an older OS because many people have found that the bios is an updated version to run Vista, and when XP is installed there are many problems surrounding the processor and other hardware issues. The only way around it may be to run the vista cd if you have one and then format using the cd, then try running XP disc after that, but caution is advised.
