You would have to buy yourself a copy of XP pro and do an OS reinstall. The XP pro should come with a COF key. When you do that you will need to install all the drivers for your computer. Check at the manufacturers website and download all the drivers for your PC that work with windows XP. Do this first then do the OS install.

How to change an operating system on the c:/ drive without destroying the information on the drive. Your email address: JCMCJMC68@YAHOO.COM


Your motherboard has to accept 64 bit OS before anything. If it is 32 bit only it will never load a 64 bit operating system. The easiest way to keep all your pictures, music and any other data files is to transfer them to an external USB drive. If you don't have the original software installation disks the software you have on the C drive won't run because the registry will have to be rebuilt. If you do get the 64 bit version of 7 to work, you'll have to upgrade most of your existing software to 64 bit versions. Example: installing a 32 bit version of Word will not run on a 64 bit machine.

Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->System Restore

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next
Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.


The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.

Hp pavilion a6300f downgrade to xp where can i download the drivers


You have to find the XP drivers for each individual component since HP doesn't want you to downgrade to XP. Your specs can be found at:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01287561&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3644689#

The chipset drivers can be found here:
http://driverscollection.com/?H=GeForce 7100 / NVIDIA nForce 630i&By=NVidia&SS=Windows XP
I can't get that link to copy over, so typ everything from http until =Windows XP in your address bar.
The HP site doesn't seem to be component-specific on any others, but If you know what Win XP is trying to install, but can't find the drivers for, google those, and a few more dowloads later you should be golden.

How to downgrade vista to winxp pro at Hp pavilion DV4-1204TU ?


Well, this may make you think twice:

I bought a presario from circuit city last year, and I paid $200 to downgrade to XP. Everything was fine until it crashed last week. IT went completely bizzerk. HP won't provide support, cause I changed it. Circuit City is out of business, not much help there.

Basically, I am completely #$%%@@.

I am now paying to get Vista put back in. :-(

How want to downgrade win vista to xp pro hp compaq v3000


If you have a Windows XP Pro installation disk, put it in the optical drive, restart your computer, on startup, go to BIOS settings (usually press [Delete] and set the optical drive as first boot device. Save changes and exit. When the computer starts it usually says to press any key to start from CD. Press any key and the windows installation will start. Make sure you format C: and you will downgrade to Windows XP Pro. If you want to upgrade to Vista again, you will need to know the keyboard sequence to start Vista from Its partition or have Vista install disk.

Vista downgrade to xp


First, why are you downgrading? Unless you have a particular piece of software that you HAVE to have that doesn't work on Vista, you shouldn't downgrade. Windows XP is outdated, and very soon won't be supported by Microsoft. So unless you have some overwhelming need to have outdated software stick with Vista.

Having said that... If you still want to go ahead with a downgrade to XP, first you'll need a copy of Windows XP and a serial number for XP.

(Note, everything on your computer WILL be erased so make sure you do your backups before you continue!!!)

1) Put the Windows XP CD in your computer and restart it. If your computer is set up to boot from CD, it should start automatically.
2) "To setup windows XP now press enter"
3) Agree to the licensing agreement
4) Choose whichever drive you want to install Windows on and press enter
5) Choose "Format the partition (Quick) and press enter
6) Press "f" to format the drive
7) It'll do the install then after a reboot it should show Regional Option, click next
8) Put your name in and click "Next"
9) Enter your 25 digit product key (Windows XP Key) and click next
10) Enter whatever you want for your computer name. It could be "Desktop" or "Laptop" or "Family System" whatever you like. If you're installing XP Professional, you'll also see a spot to type in a password to get into windows. You can leave it blank if you're the only one using it, or password protect it so no one can get in. (Then Press Next)
11) Make sure your Date/Time and Timezone is correct then press Next
12) "Typical Settings" next.
13) (IF XP PRO) Choose "No" then type in WORKGROUP
14) It should start windows after you've done those steps and you can register with Microsoft and create additional users at this point (All self-explainitory).

You might want to print this out if you're going to go ahead with the install.
