The best thing would be to return the laptop and buy one that has XP
preinstalled since this one will not meet your needs. If for some reason
you can't do that, contact the laptop mftr. to see if they have an XP
install disk and drivers for XP. If there are no drivers, then it will
be impossible to install XP on that machine and you should definitely
return it.

Hi Leodrake,

Did you boot from the XP installation DVD and format the hard drive
first before starting the XP install?

Is it not a good idea to install XP behind Vista? See the site:
