I have vista installed but have just bought a XP cd, i cant get it to boot from this the install windows xp is "faded" and just chimes when i highlight it


Answers :

It sounds like you are launching the install from inside windows? If so, it wont work.

You need to reboot the computer and then either press f1-f12 for boot options, or go into the bios and set the boot order to go to the cd first, so it can go to the install windows screen. Right when the computer turns on it should tell you what buttons to push to get to the bios, or boot menu.
The issue is that Vista operates from a SATA driver which is pre-installed with Windows Vista systems.

\015\012Only, XP doesn't work from a SATA driver and will not allow you to install.
\015\012
\015\012Don't cry! Dry your eyes!
\015\012
\015\012There is a solution!
\015\012
\015\012When you boot your computer enter into your BIOS and disable the SATA driver.
\015\012
\015\012Now, you SHOULD be able to install Windows XP.
\015\012
\015\012(However, I would highly recommend that you find someone you know that has a Windows 7 RC disk (I have a few)and try it on for size, if you can find it. It is no longer availible for free on Windows website, but if you get it you have it to try on for size until March of 2010 and then it slowly starts to fade away until you buy a fresh copy or go to another OS)
