Question about Toshiba Satellite P205-S6287 Notebook PC
From my experience with Vista, it's no wonder you want XP back.
One thing about Vista, it uses a different way of setting up the drive. Most easy way to format what you have, first check what brand it is. Go to the maker website and they always have a dos version of the formatting tool to format the drive. You will need a windows based PC to burn to a CD. Once that's done. pop the CD intothe DVD/CD drive and restart the PC. Most likely the makers left the boot order as follows Floppy,CD/DVD then Hard Drive. Most do not.
There's a F10-F11-F12 or so key to press to enter boot menu.
Whe you find and hit the keys for it, select the CD/DVD drive to boot off of it. It will run off the CD/DVD image and then let you format the drive to what you will put on it, Like XP
