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

If you have Windows Vista Home Basic Then any attempt to install XP will be disasterous! You can thank Microsoft for this bit of chicanery.They want you to stay with Vista and so the boards fitted do not accept XP drivers

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.

Change from vista to xp


I am sorry I just took a look, it appears that most all of the drivers for this model ONLY have Vista drivers. I was unable to find ANY XP drivers from ACer.

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.

I have an acer aspire 5520G it came with windows vista but i changed it to xp, only problem is ive looked hard for the last couple of months but cannot find an driver for the digital tv card or remote...


It is a Acer AverMedia TV Tuner, but that doesnet help much, as Bill Gates have got you in his hand, you can not get this driver for XP, he know what he is doing ( help me to find a way to stop him) :-)
If you get the same problem when you go back to Vista, then here it is fir Vista:
