Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
I have Vista installed on my laptop that I just bought 1/31/08, and I do not like Vista. I managed to find a copy of XP Home Edition--one of the last retail copies there is available, at Wal-Mart recently. I am not able to install it! I have formatted a partition to the C: for XP to install to, but yet when I put the disk in and click install, it tells me that it's not able to be installed. I have an Acer Aspire 5315 laptop..... Please help!
Thanks to all

You can not install under windows environment if it is a down grade. i thought maybe that is how you are doing because you said when you click intall...?? you have to boot your XP home from the cd drive and there you follow the instructions on how you wanted it installed. in XP series, you only get to use the mouse when windows is almost ready for intallation. but initial setup is in DOS mode only.
