Hello,
I want to install windows xp on my computer , I know how to install and i do many times also, actually my laptop cd drive is not working properly. so install through external cd drive. I have an xp cd and i install many times with that cd itself , Now i was using windows vista in my system, i want to remove this vista and install xp. i tried to install xp several times , so the cd didnt boot a black screen is showing nothing will going on. If i put vista cd on the drive , booting will work properly. can u please help me what to do. is ther any booting method using pendrive(usb). if there is please send me the link.

i will advice u to install d xp on ur window vista by using virtual machine 4rm microsoft.go to microsoft website donwload virtual machine software,run it and then install xp on it, by that u will be using two operating system (window vista& window Xp) on one computer. but ur pc must meet d minimum hardware requirement b/4 it can work.hv tried it myself,it was absolutely wonderful.i hope u'll like it.
insrt the bootable cd in ur CD-ROM drive-> Restart the computer->Press F2 or Del button->Bios will appear->goto the boot option->Set 1st boot device CD-ROM then press F10.Save Changes press Y then press Enter.
