It a bios problem there are many people trying the same thing, you may need to reinstall Vista first again if you cannot get the drive to format, see below http://apcmag.com/5485/dualbooting_vista_and_xp http://www.syschat.com/dual-boot-vista-xp-vista-already-1946.html

Downgrade to XP


Looks like they do not have very many drivers listed for XP on their site, but all of them (obviously) for Vista. I would recommend you not downgrade to XP with that particular laptop. Sorry!
