I want window vista BUT I DONT KNOW HOW CAN I DO THIS

Hi there !

So tell me, what do you want to do with your computer? Do your computer crash and need to reinstall your Windows Vista operating system? Or you want to upgrade your operating system from Windows XP to Windows Vista.

For reinstalling Windows Vista, is it the same procedure when reinstalling Windows XP and Windows 7. Here is the link on how to reinstall operating system For Windows Vista, here is the procedure on how to reinstall Windows Vista.

1. Just put the installer CD into the CDROM Drive and open your computer
2. If message appear to press any key to boot from CD. Press any key to go to Windows Set up.

3. From there, just follow the installation procedure and put CD key if prompted and it will install itself the whole process. It will reboot for 3 times and don't press anykey when this happen. it will be finished within 20 mins.

For upgrading from Windows XP to Windows Vista, remember that all your files and softwares will be remove except for the hardware drivers. But not all the hardware drivers will be 100% working because upgrading the operating system will make your drivers outdated or not compatible with Windows Vista. If some drivers not working, just install the hardware drivers compatible with Windows Vista.

Here is the procedure.

1. Do not put the Windows Vista installer CD yet into the CDROM drive.

2. Open your computer and let it run to Windows XP program until is is finished to load your Windows settings.

3. Now insert your Windows Vista installer CD to the CDROM drive, it will pop up the upgrade installation wizard and just choose the upgrade installation. It will run the upgrading installation and just follow the instruction and it will be finish with 20 mins.

I hope this will help you and thank you for using FixYa !

Canon MP500 all in one printer is not compatible with Windows Vista. Is there a solution for this problem, or do I need to buy a different printer?

My Canon PIXMA MP500, purchased in mid-2006, came with the (then) ScanSoft OmniPage SE2 software on a CD. The PC had WinXP Installed. I had no use for the ScanSoft it so I made no effort to install it.
Fast Forward:
Two PC crashes later, July 2009. Using Win Vista Home Premium
LOST, important WinWord document file, only a hard copy available.
I tried to recover, scanning the "Xerox" copy. The SE Version of OmniPage was very complicated but I succeeded in producing a replacement *.doc file.

It appears that newer editions of WinVista contain the right printer drivers for this Canon Model.

Win Vista ult does not support driver for Sony digita video camer

Vista Ultimate is supported per website, but only for the memory stick.

  • The drivers needed to connect most Sony® cameras and camcorders to a computer are already included in the Windows Vista and Windows XP operating systems. With these drivers, you should be able to connect and transfer files to a computer.
    Note: If the your camera or camcorder is not recognized by the computer when connected, you may need an updated driver.
  • Detailed Windows Vista compatibility information is available for Sony Cameras and Camcorders.
  • The Windows Vista Starter edition and Windows XP 64-bit operating systems are not supported.

    Some Vista driver may work on XP, however, to avoid any risk of getting in troubles with your Windows xp installation, you can download drivers and utilities for XP starting from this page.

    Cannot run Fujifilm Software for FinePix with Windows Vista

    1) If you right-click on the executable file, can you use the
    "Compatibility" TAB to run it as an XP program?

    2) Many XP device drivers will fail to install or execute properly
    under windows VISTA, and I suspect it is the camera's USB
    or Fire-wire (IEEE-1394) based device driver that is causing
    the problem, not the main application.

    Unfortunately there is NO easy solution for this,
    except to get an upgraded software package (for Vista)
    from the Camera Manufacturer.

    3) There are also two possible work-around(s), but both require
    some knowledge and software installation:

    Install both Windows XP and Windows Vista on your
    computer using two separate hard-drive partitions, and
    a boot manager.

    A partitioning tool like "Norton Partition Magic", formerly
    "Power Quest" or "Acronis Tools" can be used to partition
    the hard-drive non-distructively (your data is preserved):

    a) Resize (shrink) the existing Windows partition.
    b) Create a new partition for Windows XP (about 10 Gigs)
    c) Install Windows XP-Pro onto the new partition,
    d) Add both the XP and Vista partitions to the BOOT.INI
    file on the boot drive.

    Both windows XP and Vista do have multi-boot capability,
    but the Windows XP boot manager may not recognize Vista,
    in which case you may have to re-install or re-pair the Vista
    installation. The Vista boot manager will recognize WinXP.

    Running VISTA is generally a bad idea, because it is obscenely
    slow and inefficient compared to XP, and because it is infected
    Microsof't draconian and arrogant copy protection schemes,
    known as DRM = Digital Rights Management.

    Towards this end, Vista also insists that all installed multi-media
    devices must be "Recording Industry" compliant and approved,
    to make music and movie piracy more difficult. Many media
    copying programs and CD-rippers will also refuse to run,
    by design.

    All this "Added Technology" is stealing your money, your
    computer resources, your performance, and your right to
    backup your media, at your expense, for the benefit of
    the movie industry Mafia.

    Use Vista only when you have to, boot to Windows XP for
    most of your applications.

    Both Microsoft and VM-ware (as well as others) make
    a software product called a Virtual-PC, which allows you
    to emulate multiple operating systems under windows,
    including older windows, MAC and Linux.

    VMWare is by far the best, the most reliable and the
    most flexible, at about $200 US.

    Not possible xp installation

    How to Downgrade Vista to XP Downgrading from Windows Vista to Windows XP is almost like installing Windows XP for the first time. You should take all the normal precautions like backing up all your important files and record important passwords in a different place, preferably on a CD. When you downgrade from Windows Vista to XP, note that Windows Vista will be completely removed from your system.
    (Note: There is a way to have both Vista and XP in a dual boot configuration, but that's an option for more advanced users. See Dual Booting Vista and XP for more info on that.)
    Before you begin the XP installation, make sure that the necessary XP hardware drivers are available, or included on the XP disk provided by your PC vendor. If in doubt, check the vendor's website or poke around with your favorite search engine to see if others have attempted the XP install on the same hardware. You may be able to install XP without all the needed drivers, but some hardware may not work afterwards.
    Also, make sure that you have a genuine Windows XP CD before you begin the downgrade. Be sure to read the section earlier in this article to see if you qualify for a low/no cost XP recovery disk from your PC vendor. If not, perhaps you have an XP disc that came with another computer. If you've upgraded an existing computer from XP to Vista, the best choice would be the XP install/recovery disc that came with that computer. One some PC's the vendor doesn't ship a CD, but the recovery CD can be created from disk images on the hard drive. If all else fails, you can always buy a copy of Windows XP on Ebay. Just be sure it's a legal, licensed copy.
    Follow these steps to install Windows XP on your Vista machine:
    • Insert your Windows XP install/recovery CD and restart your computer.
    • Install Windows XP normally, providing either the product key that came with the disk, or the one you got from Microsoft customer support. If the installer warns you that another copy of Windows is already installed, don't worry. Remember, this install will wipe out your existing Vista installation.
    • Activate your copy of Windows XP when it prompts you to do so. If you run into the "already activated" problem, you can use the option to activate by phone.
    • If you own Vista Business or Vista Ultimate, explain to the rep that you want to use your Downgrade Rights to install XP Pro.
    • If you own Vista Home Basic/Premium, or you are installing XP Home Edition, don't mention ANYTHING about Vista. Just give the rep your XP product key (not the Vista key), explain that you are installing XP on a new hard drive, and tell them you need to activate.

    Demo problem

    If you have installed vista as a multiboot sytem, then you can do the below: Otherwise you have to do as tom19511 said:

    Uninstall Windows Vista on a multiboot system
    Applies to all editions of Windows Vista.

    You cannot uninstall Windows Vista. However, you can change the code that starts the operating system (often called the master boot code), and then remove Windows Vista from your multiboot system and return to Windows XP or Windows 2000. You will need your Windows Vista installation disc for this procedure.

    Before you begin, back up your programs, files, and settings. Removing Windows Vista is an advanced procedure that could result in losing information stored on your computer. For information about backing up data, search Help and Support for "back up."

    1) Insert the Windows Vista installation disc.
    2) Click the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. getopencontent.aspx?assetid=18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    3) Type [DVD drive letter]:\boot\bootsect.exe /nt52 ALL /force and then press ENTER.
    For example, if the DVD drive letter is F, type f:\boot\ bootsect.exe /nt52 ALL /force.
    4) Eject the Windows Vista installation disc.
    5) Restart your computer.
    Your computer will start in the previous version of Windows that you have installed.
    6) Delete Windows Vista files and folders, such as the Program Files, Users, and Windows folders, manually.

    Note: You can also remove Windows Vista by reformatting the partition where it is installed, but do this only if that partition is not the boot partition. Reformatting the boot partition might make your computer unable to start.
