How change my operating system from vista home premium to windows Xp

Answers :

Caution: If you have anything on the cmputer (docs, contacts,photos, etc.) save themn to a disk or flashdrive before you start as they will be lost forever with the reformat.
\015\012 Do you have an XP cd and cd key code? If so , put it in and restart the computer , if the computer asks you if you want to boot to the cd , click yes. If it doesn't ask you that, then you will need to enter the bios and change the "boot order" so that the computer reads the CD rom BEFORE the harddrive.
\015\012 Once this is set , boot to the XP cd, it will ask you questions as it starts and load a bunch of drivers so the system functions without the operating system before the OS is installed , this is normal.
\015\012When you get to the part about partitioning you want to del the old partition, then create a new one with the new space, then format using the NTFS files system. this takes a while to complete, at this point it will take you right into the install. you may need to download individual drivers for your motherboard and hardware installed and install those before you update windows completely. Then do your microsoft updates, then load the drivers for your printers, fax, flashdrive , etc..
\015\012Post again if you need more help.. also might include some model numbers of your computer and I can help you with more specific instructions..
