Q:Some of my music software does not support Vista?...
A: HAVE YOU TRIED TO INSTALL YOUR SOFTWARE IN COMPATIBILITY MODE? EVEN THOUGH YOU SAY YOUR SOFTWARE DOESN'T SUPPORT...IT MAY IF TO CHECK IF ITS COMPATIBLE... DO THIS...DOWNLOAD YOUR MUSIC SET UP FILE...FIND AND RIGHT CLICK ON YOUR MUSIC SOFTWARE SETUP FILE, SCROLL TO ''TROUBLESHOOT COMPATIBILITY'' CLICK IT...RUN THE SCAN AND TRY TO INSTALL UNDER THE SUGGESTION...YOU MAY NOT NEED TO INSTALL WIN XP...
ANOTHER WAY TO CHECK IS TO RIGHT CLICK ON THE SET UP FILE AND SCROLL DOWN TO PROPERTIES, LEFT CLICK AND LOOK FOR COMPATIBILITY, CLICK IT AND CHECK THE BOX NEXT TO ''RUN THIS PROGRAM IN COMPATIBILITY MODE'', CHOOSE WIN XP (SERVICE PACK 2) ...THEN EXIT AND LEFT CLICK IT TO INSTALL THE MUSIC SOFTWARE...
I HOPE THIS HELPS...

    do this:

    create a new partition,

    whether by taking a free space or u can shrink ur windows vista partition,

    for xp u`ll need around 10 to 20GBs and make sure that the remaining size of partition for vista to be at least 70GBs.

    then format it,

    reboot to vista to let it configure changes,

    reboot and install xp,

    then after installing as the boot loader of vista is differenrt from XP`s you`ll have to download a third-party software to fix it:

    http://www.vistabootpro.org/

    download that( microsoft .net framework 2 required)

    backup ur bcd,

    go to bootloader tab,

    reinstall vista bootloader,

    do a diagnostic from diagnostic menu,

    select the default boot choice as vista,

    create a new boot choice,

    name it xp,

    select the boot drive & ..,

    go to your windows vista root directory and display the hidden files and copy "ntdetect" and "ntldr" to the xp root directory,

    enjoy it

Downgrading my laptop from vista to window xp sp2


You can find all the drivers on the net but you'll have to know exactly what type of devices you have. Either you can refer to the invoice that you got when you bought the system of you can physically check by opening the system. DO IT AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!! To know the model no. of the devices I would go to the toshiba site and look for the config. of the system. If you have any service tag no or like that you can put that when you go on toshiba site and it would tell you the detailed config or your laptop you then can either download the drivers from that site for the appropriate OS that you want to install or you go to the device manufacturer's site and download the drivers from there.

How to install XP in toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop


You can access Vista disk management (right click on computer from the Start Menu > Manage > Storage > Disk Management) and shrink your current partition and create a new one. Then install XP on that new partition. This is if you want a dual boot of both XP and Vista.

How to install XP in toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop


You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.
