Hello Sir,

You will need the Windows XP installation disc,

Then download the XP drivers here:

Please select Windows XP SP2 depending on the version you have then download the drivers

Save all your important files and data to an external hard drive

Restart your computer, get to the BIOS settings by pressing F1 when the computer starts

Just search for Sata option

set SATA mode to IDE

Then set the Boot priority to CD/DVD Drive

Then save and exit bios

Put in the XP Cd and then follow the instructions

is there a way to take files from a windows xp computer and put them on a vista computer to make it look like xp? or from vista to xp? without the cd, without deleting your programs and documents?
