It is not recommended because everything that is Vista Compatable, isn't XP compatable. However, if you are sure that you want to remove Vista, look up UBCD and download it to an ISO. Then enable boot from CDROM first. Within that CD will give you options of removing an operating system what-so-ever by the use of A Hard Disk "WIPING"(formatting) tool. Good Luck

IBM Blue Screen


I had the same problem with an Intellistation 6868 for years. It just wouldn't load XP but ran fine on Windows 2000 SP4. I tried 3 different XP Installation CD's with no luck. After several attempts at installing XP I bought a clean XP Upgrade from ebay.

It took me 3 goes to install it but eventually I got it in there. If you can get XP to start on the 6868 press F8 and start it in safe mode first then when it's booted fully, shut it down and and then start it clean again. It worked for me. I've been running it for 5 months now and it's fine.

I couldn't get it to work at all on the 6868's onboard IDE so I installed a PCI Raid Card and it boots fine on that.

System:
IBM 6868 52A M-Pro Intellistation
2 x Intel P3 866 CPU's 256 mb cache
2 GB ECC RD Ram
2 x Seagate 320 GB 8MB Cache HDD on a Sunix ATA133 PCI Raid Card
2 x Seagate 10000 rpm SCSI HDD on Adaptec Raid Card
ATI 9520 AGP 128mb Graphics

I keep getting a blue screen that says fatal system error. My computer is a toshiba satellite x205-s7483. Th computer wont start up and takes forever but when it does the computer runs slower, freezes or...


it is a fatal error mostly occured in windows like xp. it is also the prevention of disturbing with the memory.
we have some tips to recover from there. first you have try to boot as last known good configuration option in the windows startup option. (you press F8 key, when the computer boots up).
if it is not working, try to boot in safe mode.
if it is also not possible, you have to go with your xp cd or operating system cd. first boot with operating system cd and go for the repair option to recover your operationg system.
