I've changed the OS of my acer 4315 from vista to xp..and i've installed the video card and sound card(downloaded from the net)..my problem is,,i can't find installer for my LAN/WLAN/modem..what shoul i do??
You have only 3 choices:
1) Buy a USB wireless access point with drivers for XP
Pro: Cheapest way to go
Con: You have to deal with it protruding from the side of
2) Replace the internal mini PC card with an older unit that has drivers available for XP.
Pro: Your laptop will look normal and you will not waste one of your USB ports.
Con: The high cost an the high probability that your motherboard has been configured to deny access to its resources to internal components that run on an XP environment. Microsoft has been using strong arm tactics on hardware manufacturers denying them licensing if they provide drivers for an operating system they are trying to kill.
3) The best alternative is to partition your hard drive into 2 logical disks. Install Vista on one and XP on the other. This is called a dual boot environment and it is what I run personally. When you turn on your computer a boot menu comes up and asks you which operating system you want to load. This way you will have access to the full power of Vista and your laptop and all its hardware and you will still be able to run your legacy software that is dependent on XP. You can buy the external USB wifi too if you want internet access in the XP environment also. I hope you find this info valuable and if you need more info feel free to contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org I will help you for free. Send me your number and when you would be available to discuss your options further. I have all the software for partitioning the drive and setting up the dual boot environment. I'll send it to you for free. Hope to hear from you soon. Please take the time to rate this solution Fixya in return for my premium free support.
