Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGNNR310E/S Notebook ?

Hi..could u help me with this question? I wanted to downgrade vista to xp on my Sony Vaio VGN-NR310E. When I try to reinstall with windows XP CD, it would not go through. How should I do this?


Answers :

To downgrade with a cd put the cd in cd drive and close drive. turn off computer then turn back on to boot from the cd. If that does not work you will need to get the original cd from the manufacture to down grade.

Hi,

\015\012You would not be able to run the xp installation disk from Windows Vista as Vista does not allow downgrading to XP. You need a bootable windows xp disk. Next boot through the xp cd and do a clean installation. It would go through and clean up your windows vista.
