Hello,

put the XP CD in and restart Windows. Then, boot from CD and choose to
format the harddisk (and so Vista). Formatting is the only right way to
uninstall Vista.

Greetings,
P. Di Stolfo

Re: uninstalling Vista Home
If for whatever reason you can not boot to the XP install disk... then ...
boot to the Vista DVD and advance to the screen (no need to enter code) that
has utilities. (forget the exact name) From there you can delete the Vista
partition. The XP cd should then boot and away you go.

It almost sounds like you're trying to install WinXP from within Vista.
You "can't get there from here."
