Well...you can't have 2 operating systems on the same harddrive...well you can but it's highly not recommended. so what you should do is put in the vista installation disk and do repair, then put the command "FORMAT" then it should format that drive (make sure you have everything saved) once it's formatted, you can then install the xp

I RUN BOTH XP AND VISTA ON THE SAME SYSTEM YOU ARE BEST TO PARTITION THE DRIVE AND PUT THEM IN SEPERATE SECTIONS, I USE XP FOR KIDS OLDER LEARNING PROGRAMS WITH 256 RESOLUTION AND UPTODATE PC ON VISTA SIDE. AFTER FDISK FORMATING DRIVE I FIRST INSTALLED XP IN PARTITION THEN UPGRADED WITH FRESH INSTALL OF VISTA TO SEPERATE DRIVE , WHEN BOOTS ASKS YOU WHICH START UP SYSTEM YOU NEED N U LOAD DRIVERS IN NORMAL WAY AND GET DRIVERS OFF INTERNET , U CAN USE VISTA SETUP TO GET DRIVERS PUT ON DONGLE THEN RELOAD ON XP AND LOAD DRIVERS.


YOU WILL HAVE TO ADD A PARTITION TO YOUR DRIVE IF GOT SPACE AND DONT WANT TO START FRESH.
THEN SEE IF XP CAN BE LOADED ONTO IT ILL TRY IT ON MY SYSTEM TO C IF LET U GO BACKWARDS RATHER THAN UPDATING

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.

if you have the xp installation disk, you can do a repair...then hopefully it will recognize your harddrive long enough to be able to give commands to fix it.

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.
