Can windows XP be install on HP Pavilion dv7-1132nr with Vista OS


Yes, You can dual boot Windows XP and Vista but you'll be having problem finding drivers if you install Windows XP on this computer since Windows XP supported drivers aren't available on Hp download page. HP has only Windows Vista and Windows 7 drivers for this System.
Hope this helps.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Bsod is showing...in hp compacq...why??can't change my OS from VISTA to XP???why??


If you are downgrading your OS from Vista to XP, you have to repartition & reformat your HDD before fresh installing Win XP OS. BSOD is due to drivers installed which is not compatible to you hardware,

You have to check if any drivers for XP is available for your laptop model @ HP Support
You can use the "Service Tag" for your search to locate the exact model.

Hope it helps.

What are the basic applications that runs on Windows XP O/S?


well every application and software is built on on a platform that is compatiable with some certain operating system . u should have encounter some applications that run well in xp and vitsa but are not compatiable with win 9X and others . win xp also introduce a option of compatibility for applications . just right click a .exe file and go to properties there u will find some options . suppose if u have some application or software which were runing fine in win 9x and 2000 but seem not to work in win xp u can set option from compatibility than how the system should run the application and in what platform . if u choose win9x/2000 option the o/s will trick the software that actually its runing on win98/2000 . but it works in some cases . i hope u understand thankx and take care of urself

How can i get my sata controller drivers?


This should be aviable on the CD that came with the system, Check your manufactures page to see if they have a downgrade cd aviable since most companies now offer this. In case there is then you can download the drivers from the manufactures web page and put it on a floppy so you can use it .. (win XP will tell you to press F6 to install 3rd party drivers. You may also try www.driverguide.com or you can use certin software like driver magician to find and download them for you..

you dont mention the drivers you need, you dont get drivers for software as you say, but if you mean the motherboard drivers, you will have to find out the maker of your board then search the relevant makers web site for drivers. The only problem you may come across is that the bios may have a different version for Vista than that of what you need for XP so there may be some problems stting up the motherboard drivers.
