    Most new laptops do not have even downloadable drivers for XP, they were made for Vista only.



    Question:

    Did you fully wipe the drive (secure wipe) before trying to install XP?

Changing OS from windows vista to xp


You can install xp on a vista laptop, you will need an xp install cd and you will need to backup your data (it will be erased in the downgrade process). As for the drivers, go to your laptops manufactures site. They will have a support section for your laptop model where you can see if there are drivers for xp. If you have the hardware that will support windows 7, I would go with that. Xp is slow and no longer supported by Microsoft as of April 2014, which poses a security risk. Windows 7 will be supported for a while and is faster and more stable than xp or vista.

Win xp is not installed on sony vgn-cs17g laptop


Hi, probably the cd may be corrupted or first u format the previous installed advanced os using that os installation disc and then install xp.because if u r using windows vista or seven it won roll back to previous versions. Another option is you can have two os on two drives

Windows os


Its true. the Bios or HDD driver wont allow you to install Win XP on it.. This BIOS is compatible with only Win Vista. The only easy way to do it is by creating 2 partitions while installing vista. once vista is installed- install XP with Dual boot and than format the vista partition.

Partition


Hi,
The solution to your problem is very simple.
First make two partions of your harddrive, To do so:
-Open up control panel.
-Click open Administrative Tools.
-Click open Computer Managment.
-Then Click on Disk Managment on the right side.
-Choose your main Harddrive, Right click and click Shrink Drive
The amount you Shrink will became your second partions that you can put any OS you want.


After you Have made two partions Install the Vista Os on the second partion(its usually named D:).Soon after the installation is done choose vista from the OS choice menu.
-Log into Vista
-Click on the Drive that has XP installed into and by using the ".exe" files of the software you want to install. Install the software onto vista.
And there you go, now you have:
-Vista N XP on two seperate drives.
-And your vista has the software you wanted.

Please Rate, Thanks

Hp pavillion dv6000 laptop drivers for microsoft windows XP prof.


try to download belarc advisor software. Run this in your vista OS and send it to me so I can check your hardware specs. This is the only way to avoid problems in the future or before you start the formatting.

if you have installed vista and change it to xp, you should first delete or reformat your current OS (Operating System) which I believe is the ur vista.

formatting OS:

-insert your xp disk then press F8
-click format or delete files ( i don't know the exact message that will appear on the screen)
-then install windows XP (just follow the instruction that you will see on the screen)

hope this would help you solve your problem..

thanks.. :)

Some Vista driver may work on XP, however, to avoid any risk of getting in troubles with your Windows xp installation, you can download drivers and utilities for XP starting from this page.
