format it using vista and then dont proceed to install the vista operating system.Then remove the vista disk and insert the xp disk and restart or boot from the xp cd If you think this solution helps you then your token of appreciation in the form of Rating and a testimonial will be esteemed.

You need to boot the PC with the XP CD and you will get an option to delete and format partition before new install. If you dont have the option to boot from CD at startup you will have to enter setup / bios and enable CD as first boot device. Cheers from Scott
Yes you can. But make sure you obtain the drivers of your system. After formating, things like camera, sound, bluetooth, LAN e.t.c might not work. So you must have all your system's drivers before formating. You can always get them from the internet.
You can manually disconnect the IDE/SATA cable temporarily from your motherboard (the one with NT PRO & XP HOME), then you can cleanly install a Windows XP on your new Hardisk. And after installing, you can re-connect the other hardrive on your computer and format it under your NEW Windows XP, be sure to set the BIOS BOOTUP sequence that you boot on the right drive.
1. make sure your laptop is set to startup from a cd
2. after laptop finds the bootinfo from the cd and asks you to press any key to start from cd, press any key and xp setup will start.
3. in xp setup your going to need to delete your vista partitions, preferably all partitions and then proseed to install xp into a new partition.
4. proseed with the windows setup follow the instructions and configure your settings as you wish.
It came with the SATA drive, Go into BIOS settings, hard drive settings from whatever existing (I am slipping the exact name from my mind now). Make sure you save the settings, go into Bootable options and make sure your cd rom is the first to boot, put the cd in, restart your machine and thats it............make a clean install of xp. By the way I am also not a big fan of vista.
