Sorry!, once you go forward with Vista, you cannot go back to xp without the original install disk.
They are two completely different systems. sorry!

Changing Vista to XP Pro on a Compaq Presario SR2180NX Desktop PC


SR2180NX has the Vista 32Bit OS from HP. The restore partition will always put Vista 32Bit back on if you use it. Windows XP can only be put on from scratch and I have done it while I still have Vista installed. One problem: there are no XP drivers under SR2180NX webpages. Do your research on the parts that are installed in the 2180 and any other HP machines that have the Windows XP operating system as the OEM OS. But First, check the Intel Site for the 945 chipset drivers (include the SouthBridge, too) under XP. Get them downloaded to a CD and burn the rest of the drivers you find for XP on the same CD. This way, you will have them ready when you are performing the down-grade to windows xp. After you are done with the XP install, you will still have access to the files & work you had done while in Vista. The Vista files are still readable. You might want to consider getting the Windows 7 Professional (not basic) available October 22, 2009. AND you will still have to get the Intel Downloads for Win7 any way, so why not make it a project and make it last for a few years. XP Support stops in 2014.

Hi got a acer 5220 notebook it had vista installed i formatted it 2 xp but some drives dont work i have not got a cd for vista what can i do?


What drives don't work? It is probably just some drivers. I would recommend finding the drivers and using XP, but if you want to put Vista back on... You can borrow a Vista DVD (Vista won't fit on a CD) from someone you know that has one. You should have a Vista COA (Certificate of Authenticity) on the bottom of your laptop with your 25 Digit Product Key. All versions of Vista are on every Vista disk, so when you put your product key in, it will install the correct version.

Hi Harrison685,

Thanks for posting in FixYa.

Cant get back on reg xp windows. they have me on vista windows


If your machine was new and came with Vista pre-installed, you'll need to purchase Windows XP (assuming you do not already have your old Windows XP CD). Once you've got the XP CD, you can pop it in and install XP if you do not want Vista.

Had vista basic changed to xp want to go back to vista but dont know how


Boot to the Vista DVD, reformat the MAIN NTFS partition, install Vista to that partition. then load the drivers.

Pretty simple process.

If course you'll need to backup any data you want to keep and reinstall all applications that are not native to Windows Vista
