Please Dont install VISTA, it is bloated, slow and buggy.
Either stick with XP or use Windows 7, 7 is far better than Vista.
If you are after a free download, try this 1 http://isohunt.com/torrent_details/204960365/windows+7?tab=summary
, you will need a torrent client like Utorrent, this is here http://www.utorrent.com/downloads
The download will take a while, it will come with an activation patch.
You usually install windows 7 without the serial, then run the patch after to make it genuine.
You can download everything until you have free space on HD drive. But you need at least 20 (minimum) percent of free space on disc for operating system. That model usually have installed 80Gb hard drive and it is very good laptop and if you want to upgrade that laptop just replace disc with bigger one and add more ram memory (2Gb).
Okay. So you shrunk your C partition to create D. Did you try to do anything with PM8 before uninstalling it? If not, the empty space created by the initial shrink operation should still be there and you should be able to easily recreate a partition D using that space in Disk Manager again.
Check your processor, hard disk, and memory / graphics against this list.
Recommended minimum hardware requirements for Windows Vista
The following list describes the recommended minimum hardware
requirements for basic functionality of the different editions of Windows
Vista. Actual hardware requirements will vary, depending on system
configuration and on the programs and the features that you install. If you
install Windows Vista over a network, additional hard disk space may be
Windows Vista Home Basic
800-megahertz (MHz) 32-bit (x86) processor or
800-MHz 64-bit (x64) processor
512 megabytes (MB) of system memory Note
On system configurations that use system memory as graphics memory, at
least 448 MB of system memory must be available to the operating system
after some memory is allocated for graphics.
DirectX 9-class graphics card
32 MB of graphics memory
20-gigabyte (GB) hard disk that has 15 GB of free
hard disk space
Internal or external DVD drive
Internet access capability
Audio output capability
Windows Vista Home Premium, Windows Vista Business, Windows Vista Enterprise, and Windows Vista Ultimate
1-gigahertz (GHz) 32-bit (x86) processor or 1-GHz
64-bit (x64) processor
1 GB of system memory
Windows Aero-capable graphics card
Note This includes a DirectX 9-class graphics card that supports the following:
A WDDM driver
Pixel Shader 2.0 in hardware
32 bits per pixel
128 MB of graphics memory (minimum)
40-GB hard disk that has 15 GB of free hard disk
space (the 15GB of free space provides room for temporary file storage during
the install or upgrade.)
Save all your files, your disk is risking to collapse at any time. You cannot efficently run Vista on a 10 GB hard disk. Minim efficient size it will be 40 GB or so.
Delete as many useless files as you can, use the hard drive cleaning tool that you find under all programs/accessories/system tools.
To save your file you can use the backup option in control panel, and save all files to an external USB stick or external hard drive or, do not use CD RW because the disk is full and there will be no space for disk image on hard drive.
If you want to keep using Vista I suggest replacing the hard drive for a bigger one.
Put your window XP disk into the Disk drive. Start up your computer. When it asks you what Drive you want to install it on select C:\ (where Vista is) Say yes to deleting the current Operating System and follow the instructions from there.
You did say you wanted to Uninstall Vista!
If you mean Dual Boot Vista and XP, then you will need to create a Logical Partition of about 10 Gb to install XP on and when asked where to install select this partition. But note that XP will wipe the Boot sector clean of all other Operating Systems which means that if you want to Dual boot then you will have to reinstall Vista again to get Dual Boot functionality.
