Vista vs XP

Can I get XP loaded on a new laptop if I purchase at Best Buy? Dell online is offering to load XP AND send CD for Vista 'when you are ready'.
Does BB offer any thing like that?

Best Buy will sell you a real Microsoft CD with the key. Geek Squad can install it for you and give you the cd as well.

I was looking for step-by-step install guide to putting new hard drive and loading Windows XP on my Dell Inspiron E1505?? I purchased a WD 320GB SATA hard drive to replace my dead 80gb hard drive....Dell...


All you've got to do is:

1) Insert the new hard drive.
2) Press the F8 key as the laptop boots. This will take you into the BIOS.
3) Locate the disk drive priority setting in the bios.
4) Set Priority 1 to your CD/DVD drive and priority 2 to the 320GB hard drive.
5) Save settings and exit the BIOS. This should reboot your laptop.
6) Insert the Windows XP CD.
7) It should not start the setup as it recognises the CD.
8) I will recommend that you format the drive before you install, go along with the format (make sure it does a full format).
9) After the format it will reboot your system.
10) You will be prompted with a message like "Press any key to boot form CD", DON'T press anything otherwise it will start all over again.
11) Now it should start the install. Follow the on-screen instructions.

Your trying to downgrade this means you have to use vista cd to format the hard driver, and after the laptop restart, load the Xp. Also sometimes this code comes if you donot use the original xp windows.

Thanks for using Fixy

Nominally you might get a more accurate answer by going to support.dell.com and entering the 'service tag' number (on the bottom of your machine next to the 'express service code'.

This machine also includes a field in the BIOS setup program; hit the F2 key when you see the Dell logo to start the BIOS setup program.

Looking to buy a new laptop


Many places are now offering a choice between XP and Vista for their machines. They are finding that Vista only has taken a bite out of their sales. If you find the machine you want, but it's not offered with XP, you can change the operating system fairly easy. Just about all the major manufacturers are offering drivers for XP at their support sites. They too have figured out that Vista isn't quite what they said it was, and now know it was a mistake not to offer the drivers. In my opinion as far as offering equal support for both XP and Vista for their machines, Dell is on top and by far the easiest to use, then IBM/Lenovo, Gateway, Toshiba, Sony, then Acer. HP/Compaq still has their head up their ***. You can find drivers for XP if you know the make and model of the components, ie... sound card, video card, and wireless card, if you don't know the make and model you will have to take the machine apart to get them. You will not be able to find the drivers at HP's support site, because if the machine was designed for Vista, then only Vista drivers will be found there. Not to mention that they have the most fragile motherboard on the market.
So, let's recap, BUY a: Dell, IBM/Lenovo, Toshiba, Gateway, Sony, Acer is cheaply made and has a few bugs, especially with their web cam, so think twice, and DO NOT buy an HP/Compaq. Hope this helps and happy shopping!!!

Converting vista to xp sp2 version


Yes, you need the XP SP2 Disk, and make sure you boot order in your BIOS is set to your CD/DVD drive before your hard drive (if not, make it so).
Then boot the PC with the XP disk in the drive and look for boot from the CD before Vista starts to load (you'll only have a few seconds to hit any key to do it) then you will have the opportunity to delete the partition with Vista on it and then create a new on and then format the new partition and install XP.
Good luck.

No 3d acceleration in Vista on ATI 7500


Well, I'm amazed a C640 runs Vista at all. There's no reason to buy a new hard drive, except for the novenlty of having one loaded with Vista on a C640. It's a great laptop, and runs Windows XP PRo perfectly well. If you have one od the Dell XP install disks, just boot from it, and whenever it finds the vista install, hit excape, then at the next screen hit "D" to delete the partition, then choose "quick format", and load the Operation system. If you need an install disk,let me know. Good luck
