Problems installing XP from Vista OS HP PC

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I was trying today along with Brandon6199 to downgrade the ****ty vista I have on my HP PC. When we tried to install it we got the BSOD and we read up on it relating to a sata common problem and a auto enable in the bios for it. But we couldn't solve this problem to let me downgrade and now I am stuck with my vista PC which I cannot run any game... for the nvidia drivers are ****ty + windows installer stopped working YAY! So now my computer thinks I have a 10 mb GPU, and my computer is often laggy, as it lags in desktop and mozilla often. Any help or ideas?

Can someone translate that?

I think he's trying to install XP?

If that's what you want good luck trying to find XP anywhere. Last time I saw one was about 6mos ago at a Best Buy in the bargain rack. Contact your manufacturer regarding XP drivers for your model of HP.

Hey, yeah sorry.

This is what I want to do:

1. Put windows XP on my Vista HP PC.

I have XP already so this isn't a problem.

The problem arises is when I am pressing F10 to go and install the disc I get the BSOD. And I want to figure out how to get rid of that problem and install Windows XP.

Well lets start with the model of HP you're using. Me and the other members will hunt down drivers for you and suggest different approaches based on that model no.

Also maybe we could help you get your nvidia drivers working correctly? Vista really is a great desktop experience.

Have you tried setting the boot priority to CD/DVD 1st, HDD 2nd, etc.. in the CMOS Setup? F1 or F2 usually. When are you hitting F10?

All my old games still work in Vista. I have a lot of odd ones too, never had a problem with a single one. You do have at least 2GB of ram right? That puts a lot of people off, using 1GB with it.

Okay so you hit F10 to get to the "Select Boot Device" screen and it BSOD's before it ever gets into Windows? That's not right.

Wow, would not go that far!!

Call HP and see if it's covered in the warranty. Maybe you can send it in for cheap and get it fixed.

You just need to do a complete, fresh reinstall of Vista. There could be a million things wrong with your PC that are just too long to get into right now. But I can almost guarantee you it isn't Vista itself. Your computer's specs are more than enough to run Vista at it's full potential. Don't just assume if your computer is running poorly it's because of your OS. With that attitude, you'll never get to the root of the problem.
