Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
When I try to boot my Vista OS computer to my XP Pro system disc, the "Install XP Pro" selection is disabled.
I tried to format the HDD in DOS, but that command is also disabled.
How can I get Vista off of my computer?
1. make sure your laptop is set to startup from a cd
2. after laptop finds the bootinfo from the cd and asks you to press any key to start from cd, press any key and xp setup will start.
3. in xp setup your going to need to delete your vista partitions, preferably all partitions and then proseed to install xp into a new partition.
4. proseed with the windows setup follow the instructions and configure your settings as you wish.
