HP/Compaq :: Downgrade From Vista To Xp On HPDV 9646 Em

Apr 13, 2009

to successfully downgrade from Vista to XP on this machine?

If so can you supply a posotive web link where to find the right drivers,so all devices in the device driver section are activated & don't have any exclamation marks present.

I know there is a thread on HP's website & its not very instructive,it seems a bit hit & miss.

If you get it right ,you get it right!

I managed a couple of tries,but always ended up without a network controller &

some device called unibrian pc 1394 missing!

Amongst other devices not working - no sound .

Dell :: XP Downgrade Vs. Vista

May 23, 2009

About to purchase a new E6400 and still deciding which operating system.

I noticed that I have a choice to downgrade to windows XP which I am extremely familiar and happy with. Im not familiar that much with Vista and I am concerned with all the complaints I hear.

I definitely expect to upgrade to Windows 7 when available in the winter.

Im just not sure which operating system i should go with now until then.
Did anyone else have this delemna?

Sony :: Vista 64-bit To 32-bit Downgrade

Jul 12, 2009

what Sony's policy (Sony USA) is on providing a 32-bit version of Vista with the laptops that now only include the 64-bit version (such as the Sony VAIO Z7xx series)?

From the information I have come across, apparently it is at your laptop manufacturer's discretion to provide you with a 32-bit OEM copy (which would also need a different product key than the one provided with the laptop for the 64-bit version, since it is OEM and not retail) or leave you to purchase your own copy. Does anyone have experience with Sony in this regard?

if the Windows 7 upgrade kit will also be 64-bit only?

Sony :: 'Downgrade' From Vista To XP

May 20, 2009

trying to "Downgrade" my Laptop from Vista to XP, I have a legal copy of XP and when I boot from disk it wont install it just says that it cannot find a HD to install to. I downloaded a copy of XP to see if my disc was just broken or something and it let me format my HD and install XP, the only problem i have with that is i wont be able to perform updates and i only have a small screen in the middle of my display (i assume this is because some drivers are missing) also i cant connect to the internet because there are drivers missing. I have been on the sony website and downloaded some but they dont work, i think its because there designed for Vista.

So my question is this, does anyone know how I can get my LEGAL copy of XP to install and also does anyone know where I can get compatible drivers for it? My Laptop is VGN-NR38E/S.

Dell :: Downgrade From Vista To XP On XPS 1530M

May 16, 2009

I have tried to install XP on a new hard drive in my XPS 1530, but it seems to not finish the install. I've changed the controller to ATA so that XP can see the HDD.

I've even tried to install Linux, but it will freeze during setup. Can someone help me please. This is a clean install, so I don't need any dual-boot instructions.

Mar 30, 2009

I followed the instruction on this site, http://www.dell-m1330-info.com/dell_...indows_xp.html

to downgrade to xp. Everything seems fine. I downloaded the drivers and everything. but the thing is that it's EXTREMELY!!!! s...l.....o.....w. it's even slower than those old computers I dont know what the problem is. Is it something I did in the BIOS?

I delete all the partitions except the C drive when it asked me, so Im not sure if that has anything to do with it.

Dell :: Microsoft Vista Downgrade

Sep 25, 2007


Seems MS has caved in,

Hate Vista? If your PC is running Microsoft Windows Vista Business or Windows Ultimate and you're fed up with the OS you may be able to ditch Vista for XP Pro. Microsoft is quietly allowing you to downgrade to Windows XP Pro.

Dell, Hewlett-Packard, and Lenovo are just a few of the system manufacturers offering downgrades. Each of these PC makers offer an XP Pro recovery disc to those who request one that can be used to revert a Vista machine to XP Pro.

Dell, HP, and Lenovo customers can request a Windows XP Pro recovery disc to be included with their purchase of a Vista machine - should they want to revert in the future. Customers who already have purchased a Vista-PC can request an XP Pro recovery CD for between $15 to $20 by calling technical support.

Dell :: Vista Ultimate Downgrade Rights

Jun 10, 2008

My 1730 is "In Production" (whatever that means) and I specifically got one with Vista Ultimate so I could use downgrade rights to run XP for a while longer.

Anyone know how I go about exercising these downgrade rights?

I will need a CD Key to install XP Pro, how do I go about obtaining one? Is this a call to Microsoft? Dell? I don't need any media; I have several Microsoft XP OEM CD's from various systems I have built over the years and I have already downloaded all the XP drivers for the 1730 from Dell's site.

Acer :: Missing To Downgrade Vista To Xp Is The Sata Controller

Nov 14, 2008

The only thing Im missing to downgrade vista to xp is the sata controller I cant find it anywhere for the Extensa 4630Z.

I found Slipstream drivers but it was for downgrading a acer aspire laptop and they didnt work.

I checked intel's site for sata controller drivers they arent there.

When tried slipstream drivers I found filename called " iaahci.inf " I used nlite to intergrate them on cd im still getting a blue screen so they arent compatible.

Why doesnt acer's support site have these sata drivers?

Acer :: Aspire Timeline 3810tz Vista To XP Downgrade

Aug 28, 2009

I own an Acer Aspire Timeline 3810tz. My laptop did not come with an optical drive and now I'm wondering how I might go about downgrading it from Vista to Windows XP? I have already purchased a USB Cd-Rom drive and skimmed through some nLite articles, but I'm still getting the blue screen 0x0000007B error. I'm guessing it has to do something with the SATA/AHCI driver but I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

*During my XP install I changed the SATA Mode from AHCI to IDE

*I think I might be using the wrong driver, but I'm not entirely sure.

HP/Compaq :: HP Envy 15 CPU "downgrade"

Mar 30, 2010

my questions can be summarized as follows:

(1) Would it theoretically be possible to put a PGA 988 version of i7-640LM into an Envy 15, and

(2) Is it easy to upgrade the HDD's for a couple standard 2.5" SSD's?)

From I understand, most people's complaints and bad reviews about the Envy 15's battery life and heat are about the older version with the HD4830, and the new version is a bit improved. That said, I can't say that I approve of a 1++ lb extra battery pack for a laptop to really be mobile, and I bet it still does get noticeably warm... Right?

So, I started thinking - the main benefits of this laptop for me would be the graphics card and USB 3.0... Maybe I can sacrifice some other factors to increase battery life and decrease heat.

I took a look at a list of i7 mobile CPU's and found the i7-640LM... And while this model is mainly available in BGA form, I correctly figured that Chinese eBay sellers might have an ES version in PGA 988. That's a 25W TDP, low voltage, dual-core CPU that would surely eat up a lot less power than a quad-core, 45W i7. I'm not sure if that CPU's memory controller would allow using four memory sticks, but I don't mind 2x4Gb... It's just another way of lowering the power usage, heat, and weight. So, question number 1: Would such a "downgrade" theoretically work? Would anything with hardware and/or BIOS prevent me from doing this? Considering that I'd want USB3, I guess I'd have to buy an i7 model from which to do the downgrade.

And secondly, are the HDD slots just standard 2.5" trays (and ~9mm thick or even thicker) and easily upgradeable? I haven't done the research, but I figured I might get a couple of SSD's that are especially low power... Though I bet just about any SSD's would be a better than HDD's.

HP/Compaq :: Do I Really Want To Reinstall Vista On My HP

Feb 23, 2009

My wife has an HP DV6000 with Vista on it from the factory. We have talked about reinstalling Vista to get rid of all the other "junk" to put it nicely. I mentioned this to my brother-in-law and he said we don't want to reinstall Vista because HP puts so much on there to help users. If we reinstall Vista are we going to loose out on something HP gave us?

HP/Compaq :: Dv5 Question For Vista 64 Bit

Jan 3, 2009

How do you like the 64 bit OS? Will 32 bit programs still work with this and install under x86 folder? Any issues? The reason I ask the dv5-1183cl I bought when I get back to the US in a few weeks will have a P9500 2.53GHz processor and Intel Extreme SSD drive installed and I thought about going back to 64bit I just don't have a lot of experience with this OS yet, I don't like Vista to start with but it does have some better features than XP did, XP still performs better however with all the new components being released you need Vista to support some of the items.
