Hi there,
I have a Dell Inspiron E1705.
I have the above laptop and upgraded XP to Vista Home :-(. With the XP version, I could "reinstall" XP at boot-up by holding the CTRL-Fx key and set all back to the original configuration. :-)

This key combination no longer works when I upgraded to Vista :-(.

My Question: is there a "simple way" to get back to my original XP configuration?
MUCH THANKS!
Gene:)

Hi there,

Yes mate you need to boot from your pc recovery cd's since you upgraded the recovery partition is of no use anymore.

Thanks
