Ashraf HZRe: Installing xp instead of xp
Am a little confused 😀
You want to install XP alongside Vista, yes? But what is the issue? You second post seem to say you have succeeded already.
If you want to have 2 OSes, you need to create an extra partition.
Also, keep in mind that the usual process of installing multiple OSes is to install the oldest one first, followed by the newer one. If you reverse the process, the older OS may not recognize the boot manager of the newer one and may overwrite it. In this case, you'll need to fix the boot manager.
A word of warning. Do NOT install Windows XP 64 Bit with Vista 32 Bit 😉
mokshwell yeah but u can do that in a single partition too u'll get an option to create a new folder in place for ur WINDOWS folder and Program files...
babloo0311thanks for replying but the problem is i want completly to remove the vista and then install windows xp
MaRoWhat's your Laptop brand?
mshearerif theres something on the computer causing you problems then you could,
get yourself a linux live cd
from the live cd, run the command in terminal
reformat your laptop hard-drives and try the vista install again.
Note: You won't be able to reverse this reformat, so you will definitly lose vista for good. And i really don't see how XP won't just install over the top of vista.
first delete d vista partition n keep d vista files store. n den install XPbabloo0311hi everyone i have bought laptop it has already installed vista now i need to install xp but its not installing only
The best way is to delete the c partition(i.e the partition were the vista files located) and then create it again, then install the xp. definitely it will work out.babloo0311thanks for replying but the problem is i want completly to remove the vista and then install windows xp
nileshchakkarI think no one understand ur problem
do a simple thing
1)insert xp cd
3)press any key for continue
4) u get a booting option in that it shows all drive
5) complete format a drive where vista presnet ( probablu it on C)
6) nw select that c drive for to install xp
7) just press next n next
8) u will nw got success in installing xp
sumitjamiAbove process is exactly what is needed but make sure u format not only c drive but also all the other drives (in above process along with step 5) so that the newly loaded xp can recognize the drives.................
