Hello,

I have HP Compaq Presario CQ40-180TU laptop with windows vista. Since long I've been trying to install windows xp on it but failed. Today I asked a laptop dealer he informed that this model of laptop doesn't support windows xp, but vista and windows 7 only.

Does anyone have the solution for it? I really need to replace vista with xp.

Thanks & best regards,

Aamir
