HOW TO INSTALL XP IN VISTA OS OF LAPTOP HP PAVILIION

\015 After installation of vista, from the os of vista how can we install xp pro os\015

Answers :

I am not sure that installation from within the Vista OS to XP is possible. But you can install them Side by Sid.

And sometimes may laptops have specific SATA drivers that are conditioned only to run on Vista - this is a proprietary attempt to force the public into using Vista even though it doesn't work well.
I have installed many HP's and Toshiba's with Dual booting options for Vista and XP, its a time consuming task but it is possible. What you need to do, is make sure you have a full version of Windows XP (Pro, or Multimedia are 1st choices), some free space on your partition to install XP and worse case scenario you may have to re-create a bootable XP CD with the correct Hard Drive drivers for your laptop's SATA controllers, you will know this is the case if your Windows XP CD won't recognize your hard drive while booting from the cd to do the install. For a complete step by step info on this process, go to this link and read all the steps. If you find that your hard drive isn't recognized during this process, post up and I can send you another link to help you re-build your OS cd with the correct SATA drivers integrated so that the Installation of XP is accepted.

Hi there.
The only way you can install XP on a Vista machine is to install "virtual XP" onto Vista using Virtual PC 2007.
Here is a site that will take you through the procedure step-by-step and gives links to download Virtual PC and install it onto the machine.
Please be aware that some drivers may not work whilst using XP when you have it installed.
