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?October 4, 2007 at 6:32 am #331711October 4, 2007 at 6:36 am #331712
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.October 4, 2007 at 8:16 am #331715

ok amped do u really think that i havent tried google hundreds of times? thats the first thing you do.
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.October 4, 2007 at 10:35 am #331722

If your system isn’t compatible it will most probally say “install anyway”
He cant install xp if he still has vista on there.October 4, 2007 at 4:03 pm #331756
