Download drivers from acer website and store it on flash or separate Hard Drive.
go to bios and change the last entry in advance section to something AHIE to IDE (not in my mind now) by this the setup will detect the hard drive. Next: Prepare Winxp CD and load the Winxp as usual.

First of all, find out if there's XP drivers available for your laptop. Many new ones don't have. Installing XP without working drivers becomes pointless, as your laptop won't run properly without them.

Yes you will get all the drivers here

However only Vista Premium and Vista Ultimate users can perform a direct downgrade. You can start a fresh installation from a bootable disk of WinXP. Be aware that this will replace the Vista with XP.

Software incompatibility on my acer aspire6930-6455


Well, we wont know until you try. In my opinion, your 32/64 bit issues will be solved, but you would still have the normal vista/xp compatibility issues.

But that is to be expected, like when we all upgraded from win98 to XP.

So - I would recommend downgrading to Vista 32 bit, or getting the 64bit software version of the programs you want to use.

Good Luck, and let me know what you did, and how it turned out! :)

Acer Aspire 9300-3716 Hardware trouble after downgrading from Vista to XP.


You can download the drivers directly from Acer.

http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/webpage.cfm?siteid=7293&areaid=7&website=AcerPanAm.com/us

Just choose "drivers and downloads"
Then "notebook"
Then "Aspire 9300"

On the right window, you will see available drivers. Once you highlight each one, you will see what operating system it is for in the "download details" window.

Vista downgrade to xp


no there aren't any drivers, but the problem you will have is that the bios is updated to suit Vista and installing XP will cause problems with components in the notebook.

My advice is to keep Vista if you havent already uninstalled the operating system, but you will notice that your hard disk has two partitions, install XP on the other partition and have a dual boot notebook, if you have uninstalled then lend a friends copy of Vista and use your own instalation product key code on the underside of your notebook and re install.
