I don't recommend downgrading your laptop from Vista to XP but...

According to manual, pressing F2 during boot sequence takes you to BIOS and then you can change
the order of the boot sequence in the BIOS. From the manual:

"...set passwords, change the booting order, and add new peripheral devices to the machine."

If you can't find boot sequence in BIOS setup, talk to a support rep online:

You may need to use a different server if not in CA.

I have a toshiba 440cdt, cant remember password, it also wont boot from cd? i have held esc then f1 to get into bios and changed boot sequence to cd 1st, but still cant boot from cd or get through bios...


You might have to go to Toshiba support and get a BIOS Flash to update for your BIOS. Win XP is no longer supported, therefore you may need to go to Windows 10.

My laptop is LG X-NOTE e500 G.A2H2A2 .Present operating system is Window vista i want to load operating system xp service pack 2.plzzzzzzzzz suggest


You need to have a Windows XP SP2 bootable disc. Just go to BIOS and enable the boot from CD/DVD Insert the Windows XP disc It will boot with the bootable disc and you just need to follow the on screen instructions. You will need to format the HDD and do a clean installation which will result in data loss. Please make sure that you take a backup of all your important data files before changing the operating system.
For any further assistance please feel free to revert with comments.

you can safely install up to a 80 GB HDD in that compaq. When getting into the bios go to the boot sequence section and change the boot squence to be CD=>HDD=>FLOPPY or FLOPPY=>CD=>HDD

I want to boot from cd to change windows from xp to 98


enter the bios set up on start up. Go to boot sequence, change 1st option to cdrom instead of main drive. Save and exit. Let it boot up, put 98 disk in cdrom. Shut down, reboot and win 98 installation will begin asking you to over write existing ops sys. Choose yes and the install should be a breeze after this. Once xp is installed, dont forget to return to the bios and change back your boot sequence to hard drive as primary /master.

XP wont be able to detect your hdd as you are using a SATA drive. You have two options here

1. Disable SATA function in the bios (easier to do) and use again your XP cd to install the software, it should be able to detect the hdd this time around

2. You have to slip stream the SATA driver to your XP CD and recreate another CD from it. (harder to do). Google "SATA driver slipstream XP" you will be directed to the proper sites

Boot sequence problem


try booting to DOS screen only by inserting a boot-able floppy disc (I use Win ME disc at this point although my system is also Win XP). Then select "boot with CD-ROM driver". It will detect your CDROM drive and assign a letter. Now insert the CD and boot from there. I have done this sequence many times with no problems.
