    Hello. I hate vista. it has errors with all my video editing programs. this computer came with vista. i want to install xp because xp is better, but when i put the disk in there are 3 options install xp, perform additional taks, and check system compatability. the last 2 are white but install xp is grey and i cannot click it to install xp. this is annoying, how am i going to be able to install xp?

    You should check with the people who sold you the computer. Even if you qualify for a downgrade to XP (I think downgrades are not available for Vista Basic), your machine may not support XP fully (some Sony laptops do not have XP drivers available).

    The basic process is to obtain an install disk for XP (you don’t need to own it, just borrow one from someone), wipe your harddrive clean, install XP, and then contact Microsoft for activation. You will need your Vista activation code.

    Spelling everything in lower case with “u” instead of “you” doesn’t exactly show your intelligence.
    Amped, was trying to help. You’d be surprised how many people come with a question without having googled it.

    You should do what I do, and have a google search bar in the upper right corner of your screen. That way it’s right there, no excuses.

    Before Xp can install it has to check that your system is combatible so click the 3rd button first and then if combatible it will allow you to install.

    If your system isn’t compatible it will most probally say “install anyway”
