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.

I need to download brother HL 2070N


Hello Asma,

If you are using Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Mac OSX 10.5 or greater all you need to do is plug in the printer via USB cable and allow it to auto detect or if you are using a network connection, just select "add Printer". The drivers are built in.

For Windows XP or Linux you need to download the drivers.

How do I setup a dual boot for a PC with Vista and XP? I want XP to start automatically.My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite L355-S7915 that had Vista Home Basic preinstalled.


The first thing you need to do is repartition the hard drive. This will effectively erase the drive because partitions run below the OS level.

You create two partitions and then you can load each OS to its own partition. When the box boots you choose the OS you want to start and thats it...I think if you put the preferred OS in the first partition it will load that one by default.

You need both OS disks to do this so make sure your factory Vista disk works.

There are a lot of things that do not work on Vista that do work on XP. For that reason some of my client's have asked me to re-install XP so they would not have to upgrade their hardware and software programs. You could have the same problem.

eMachines only released this model for Vista so the only drivers they have on their site is for Vista.

Vista OS


It does not work with vista at least not for me. And besides with XP and Vista you shouldn't have to install it anyway as both OS's have a feature called plug and play which means that when you plug it in via a USB port Windows Xp automatically recognize it and its driver. Thats one thing about XP thats so great XP just about recognizes every joystick and game pad driver there is without installing the pads software.

Problems with the USB hub on P5GD2, running Vista


So you mean that you change your OS from XP to Vista? Yeah it really wont work normal because the driver that you installed is not for VISTA compatible drivers. ANd also you cannot force to install an XP driver to a Vista OS. Try to look to google that MBR of your and find some compatible driver for your VISTA.
