Switching from vista to XP what do I heve to do?


Perform a backup of all your data to an external hard drive.Do a clean install of XP, erasing Vista.Re-install your programs, and then restore your files from the backup.
It used to be much harder, but now you can do it easily. Also, if you have Vista Professional, I believe you can just put in the XP disk and it will give you options for ez downgrade back to XP pro

I got a new Toshiba L455-S5009 with Windows 7 (64 bit) pre-installed. I want to install Windows Xp. Everytime I run Windows xp installation cd it gives blue screen of death and stops the installation....


I would strongly recommend against downgrading to Windows XP. The hardware in your machine is designed to run and perform at it's best on the newer operating systems Vista/7. You may run into several issues trying to actually locate drivers for your machine.

I have looked on the Toshiba's support site for your particular model and some of the critical drivers are not listed for Windows Xp (sound,video,LAN,wireless)

Not to mention the fact that your system is running a 64 bit processor and you are going to be downgrading to a 32bit operating system and not utilizing your processor's potential.

To answer your question though it is most likely because your system needs a driver for the hard drive controller that is not included on the Windows XP installation media. I did search on the for a controller driver but was not able to find one. Can't say with 100% certainty that is why you are receiving the BSOD but most likely the case

You can't downgrade from vista to xp without formatting your hard drive. Make sure that the drivers of your computer is compatible with xp before you format your hard drive.

Downgrade 64 bit to 32 bit


Are you downgrading from 64bit Vista to 32bit Vista?

If so you will need to purchase the complete installation for 32bit Vista. You insert the disc into the computer, when it asks "press any key to boot CD" press any key, it will start the windows installation. Just continue through with everything. Be warned that this WILL erase all data off of the computer.

If you are trying to downgrade from Vista to XP you will need to find out if the manufacturer ever released drivers for XP for that model of computer. Most newer machines are not XP compatible anymore.

Downgrade Acer M1641 from Vista home premium to Windows XP


Its a driver incompatibility issue. Many hardware components designed for Vista are incompatible with XP. This means that the Realtek audio driver may be the Vista version. Also, some hardware has of yet no XP drivers, so your audio components were designed for Vista only.
While it may be possible to "force" the driver to work, it may involve a number of hacks to the Windows registry and other files.

I have only some Questions...what is the name of AMILO desktop Pi 3630?...can i change my hardware from vista to exp proffetional sp3?


Hi! What do you mean by what is the "name" of the amilo? It is a fujitsu siemens brand or you ment something else? As for downgrade, you can downgrade vista to xp if you got pro/ultimate of vista, if it came with vista home however, then you won't manage to do that. As for your hardware, well there speaks nothing against downgrading to xp as long as you have the xp drivers for your hw. You may run into audio problems though under xp sp3 if you are using the default hw setup of amilo. Please provide a full detail of your hw if you want to know whether all your hw has drivers for xp sp3. Let me know if this answered your questions :)
