Hello:

You probably have to downgrade your laptop from Vista to XP, but you do not have a license (right to downgrade) to do with Microsoft.

Normally, the desktop and professional laptops only received rights to downgrade to XP due to risk of operations undertaken grinding halt because of software with some programs and Vista incompatiblities.

Personally, it is best to switch to Windows 7.

Since your laptop with Vista, it can run Windows 7. For all the missing drivers you may need to you can use normally drivers Vista on the support page and the driver of your laptop.

In addition, you can read through this guide for dv2000 for Windows 7 upgrade.

  • Can I use another set of recovery disks?

    My sisters Pavilion p6537c lost his hard drive (Windows 7). She has no recovery disks and HP is no longer their offer. Can I use my brothers HP (I don't know the model) recovery disks? I understand that drivers will be different, but I can use them to get a return to work? I can find drivers.

    Lacking, I have a copy of Windows 7, I can do a fresh install and use the key to windows 7 that came with the ch?

    Thanks for any help,

    Den

    Hey Den,

    Unless the other PC is identical (it is same OS, model No. discs, etc.) then the recovery will not work on PC of your sisters - the disks read one "tattoo" on the bios chip to ensure that they are used on the machine, they were intended.

    However, it there's no reason that you can not install Windows 7 using your installation of the retail disc, and then use the character product activation key 25 on your COA label (5 blocks of 5 alphanumeric games) sisters.

    An example of a COA label can be seen here.

    Enter the key when asked and then use the 'phone method' described in the link below to activate the installation...

    That is right. Cloud software can be installed on Mac or Windows for no extra cost. No platform swap process is necessary.

    On the Mac log you just to creative.adobe.com with your Adobe ID and download the software. Same thing as you did on the PC.

  • Satellite L300-1BV you can file a copy of the recovery disks

    Hello
    Just out of curiosity.
    I have not tried, but I heréd you can make a copy of the recovery disks, using the toshiba disk creator.

    I just thought it would be faster posting this question, rarther than to try.
    I don't know it costs £30 for a copy of the recovery disks, which led me to think are for people who did not create recovery disks or people who lost it copy recovery disks.

    I myself only one copy

    No, you can do as much as you want. But it only works on the L300

  • Pavilion 4070 - us: new hard drive for the recovery disks do not work! Help!

    Hi - the hard drive on my Pavilion 4070 - crashed us, so I bought a replacement - a Samsung SSD 850 EVO, 256GB drive.  The problem is that I can't seem to get the recovery disks to work, and neither Microsoft nor HP is willing to help me.  Of course, Microsoft tells me they don't give me any help for Windows7 OEM versions and HP said that my product is no longer supported so they do not help me.  This is ridiculous - I own a legal copy of Windows 7 and I can't get any help from the company who sold me the computer?

    What happens when I go through the process of installation with the recovery discs, is that instead of the Windows installation continue as it is supposed to, I have "no boot device - insert boot disk and press any key any."  I'm desperate, I tried two different options - one was the minimum image recovery, the other was a factory restore.  Nothing seems to work. What can I do?   Moreover, the original hard drive is not * completely * dead - I can still access most of the data on it.

  • How is it you can't use more than 126 GB of a 1.5 TB with LabVIEW Real-time hard drive?

    How is it you can't use more than 126 GB of a 1.5 TB with LabVIEW Real-time hard drive?
     
    It's only 8.3% of disk space!

    http://digital.NI.com/public.nsf/allkb/E7E2F5657B6026358625750B007201A6?OpenDocument

    The national Instrument is reformat that you drive less than 126 GB or replace the drive with a less than this size.

    Please OR tell me you go fix your LabVIEW Real Time soon, and that we will not have to wait for LabVIEW RT 9.2.1 in 2011 for this one to fix.

    http://upload.wikimedia.org/Wikipedia/Commons/9/90/Hard_drive_capacity_over_time.svg

    Readers as high as 126 GB or more have been around since mid-2002.  It's about 7 years now and LabVIEW Real-time STILL cannot use greater than 126 GB drives!  Please OR.  Do something.

    We deserve the patches for older versions of LabVIEW RT.  What about updates to LabVIEW RT.  As 7.0.2 7.1.2 7.6.2, 8.0.2, 8.2.2, 8.6.2.

    We don't need new features or versions of LabVIEW RT as 9.0 until we have some of the bugs fixed in existing versions.

    Hello

    You can install and activate the perpetual software (purchased) two computers of the same type (mac or pc), as long as you use it on one at a time.

    It is advisable to disable the software on a computer on which it will be is most used, especially before giving away or selling the computer or reformat the hard disk. Please see this link: How to disable the software.  This frees an activation if you have the option to install the software on another computer at any time.

    Hope this helps!

    I just bought an Iphone 6s and not yet am possession of en from the Sim Card. Ook, do you know if I can use the phone including applications via Wifi and put the chip later? Thank you. Renault JL

    No, because if you bought a new iPhone, then you need a SIM card to activate it before you can use the wifi applications.

    This is a phone after all, you don't need a sim card any to be able to activate it.

  • Can I use 4 apple tv remote to operate the devices homekit with siri?

    I just bought a 4th gen Apple TV and I'm experimenting with everything that can make the Siri to button on the remote control.  I tried to use it to turn my lights on and outside, and I received the message "Sorry, I can't help with HomeKit here."  Am I reason to assume this isn't allowed / supported?  Curious to know why, as the Apple TV also serves as the gateway so that I can control my HomeKt remote devices from my phone (which is currently working).

    Thank you!

    -Jeff

    That is right. Although the ATV4 HomeKit capable Siri on tvOS is not yet supported. My hypothesis is that Siri visibility will increase.  Just as the music was not included until 9.1. I expect more integration through software updates.  That said, being a user forum, and not something I've seen confirmed by Apple...
