When you re-boot your computer there should be a boot menu asking you which install you want use. Use the up and down arrows keys.

Hello, i have a dell xps m1210 laptop. i was using my computer and when i want to restore to factory settings i was using ctrl f11 combination and restoring back. but i now installed windows 7 on c drive....


No the hidden partions rely on the main partion to have some files still intact to complete a repair of the operating sytem then restores the files back to thair factory settings, to put xp back on you will need the factory recovery cd or dvd. If you buy a copy of xp and install it then ust eht recovery it should restore it to factory with drivers as well.

Hard disk drive not opening


Best is not to partition your Hard Drive to more then 4 partitions. If you are going to install more than 2 Operating Systems(OS) on your hard drive,be sure to set your partition to "active" for the intended OS before formating. If you set to more to 4 partition, most probably your OS will not be able to read the partitions and that are the reasons you are getting the errors.

You need to not delete the partion but you need to do a format on your HD (harddrive) to basically remove EVERYTHING. What you did was just installed a second windows onto your computer.

Vista downgrade to xp


no there aren't any drivers, but the problem you will have is that the bios is updated to suit Vista and installing XP will cause problems with components in the notebook.

My advice is to keep Vista if you havent already uninstalled the operating system, but you will notice that your hard disk has two partitions, install XP on the other partition and have a dual boot notebook, if you have uninstalled then lend a friends copy of Vista and use your own instalation product key code on the underside of your notebook and re install.
