Good day

If you have all the Windows XP drivers for your PC, then it is not a problem to downgrade to Vista, although i will not advise downgrading, as Microsoft mentioned that they are only going to release the last Service Pack for XP, then there will be no more Service Packs for XP, and only Support for Vista.

Hope this helps you to make up your mind

Regards

How to HP DC7900 MINITOWER WINDOWS VISTA DOWNGRADE TO WINDOWS XP?


Are you having problems? If you are, I am not surprised. You will have driver issues.
Contact www.hp.com for drivers. If there are no drivers for XP then it won't work properly.

How can i install windows xp in windows vista.if click install windows xp. setup cannot continue because the version of windows on your computer is newer than the version on cd


you cannot downgrade operating system. thats the number 1 rule. what you can do there is try to perform a clean install of windows XP if you still want to use windows XP. Boot the computer from CDROM. by pressing F12 key from the time you power on the computer. setback is, everything you installed in vista will be erased.

do not downgrade, if you don't have WIndows XP software.
you can not dowgrade Vista to Windows XP.
copy all the data from your computer and store it on a DVD or CD.
inssert the WIndows XP, reformat and install, (just following the instruction on screen).
you can upgrade from WIndows XP to Vista, not the other way around.

Downgrade 64 bit to 32 bit


Are you downgrading from 64bit Vista to 32bit Vista?

If so you will need to purchase the complete installation for 32bit Vista. You insert the disc into the computer, when it asks "press any key to boot CD" press any key, it will start the windows installation. Just continue through with everything. Be warned that this WILL erase all data off of the computer.

If you are trying to downgrade from Vista to XP you will need to find out if the manufacturer ever released drivers for XP for that model of computer. Most newer machines are not XP compatible anymore.

IS IT POSSIBLE to remove factory-installed Vista from a laptop and install WinXP? And if so, can someone assist me with this?


Yes it is possible, its also possible to keep both at the same time. But you need a windows xp install cd, and valid install key.

If you have both then post back and we can help you out some more.

HP DESKTOP COMPUTER #SR1365CL


Sorry to inform you but you cant downgrade from vista to xp on this model I have found most systems that are designed to run vista lose several drivers when downgraded to xp.

the only solution that will restore drivers would be to reload vista by purchasing an upgrade version of vista (this allows an upgrade from xp to vista and will restore drivers only catch is your xp operating system must be xp home with sp2(service pack 2).

When you removed vista from your machine you actually downgraded by replacing the vista operating system with XP.
