Boot Computer To XP?
A guy told me about this on my last question, but didn't explained it. What do you have to do to boot you computer to XP?
But when I start my computer...it doesn't ask me...it directly opens with Vista.....Sad
Ok.. sorry I didn't explain...I have Vista and I am trying to install XP over it just like a guy named Matt said....so he said to back up all my files...and boot my computer to XP.....and I don;t know how to do that....
YES Im trying to het rid of Vista....and this guy Matt said to back up my files which i did..and then BOOT MY COMPUTER TO XP. And I don't know what he means by that.....and could you please explain it steps by steps cuz Im only 15 and don't really understand when you all say stuff like Partition or reformat the hard drive....

Turn it on.

If you have more than one Operating System, you can often choose which to boot from when you turn on. I have SuSE and XP on mine, and I have to select at startup (or I can set one as default)

Switch on the power?

What are you trying to do?

Do you have Windows XP installed on your hard drive?

Are you trying to install Windows XP from a CD drive?
