Need Help With Reloading HP Laptop...from win7 to XP

6 posts in this topic

I put win7 on my HP and my DVD drivers wont play anything. Seems like a common problem. I want to reinstall the original XP and drivers etc so I can use the dvd drive. I have never done this so, what is the secret? I loaded in the original dvd that came with the laptop and it only shows me what is on the dvd. Is there some reload button deep in someplace I have not found? Thanks in advance any help will be appreciated.

Your basically down gradeing your OS so you'll need to get a bootable program such partition magic burned on a disc and boot your computer up with it. You then reformat your hard drive while booted up in partition magic. After that put your WinXP disc in and do a new instal.

My bad...it came with vista and I would just as soon use the reboot dvds sorry about the xp mistake. Sounds interresting tho, since I have PM. I have looked everywhere and cannot get the machine to begin the auto reinsall of vista over windows 7.
