How do I change OS from Vista to XP on my Satellite L series

Hi all

I read where many messages are people back to XP is Vista really bad, and if so how can I change my XP laptop, it's as easy as just install XP on my PC

Hello Big_K

I'm using Vista more than a year now and I am satisfied. For me it is not complicated and when you use if a period of time, you will see that there is no problem at all. To be honest I don't understand why so many people make a great story with preinstalled Vista. We have new equipped laptops to new standards and equipment adapted to run under Vista.

All the drivers, tools and utilities work well. Believe me, with the right configuration of operating system that Vista will work well and quickly. I guess a lot of people want to use older programs and applications that cannot be installed under Vista and is perhaps the main reason for a downgrade.

Family Windows XP Setup on new models of laptops is certainly possible. Perhaps you will face different problems and must accept that all will not work so well. It is recommended to install WXP SP2 and all the available drivers, tools, and utilities (if the laptop is supported WXP). With SP3, you can face problems. Many people have reported problems with the sound or the Wi - Fi feature.

So, if not necessary, I recommend you to use Vista. Vista is perfectly configured (recovery image) for your laptop model. You can't stay on WXP level all the time. Learn to work with Vista. Maybe soon we will have new operating system on the market. Maybe you should follow technical innovation and not just go back simply because you feel uncomfortable with the old operating system.

To be honest I do not understand why so many people can't accept that the era WXP goes all the way.
It is time for changes. ;)

One last thing: you can install what you want. It has no negative influence on the valid guarantee. Just create a support of recovery before you make changes.

    As an admin (who you are), please connect to, from the administration console (manage my team), you can simply click on the cross (x) sign at the front to invite her Email address you want to change. (This is revocation of the invitation)

    The next step would be to send an invitation to the desired E-mail, which once accepted will be part of the creative team of cloud.

    Member of the team if she already was part of the creative team Cloud & her E-mail has been changed will not need to uninstall.

    He can just disconnect CC App & relog in there with the new E-mail with which he agreed to invite him again.

    Note: old Email can be revoked & new prompt can be send by admin only.

  • How to restore backup files from Vista 32 to Win 8 64 bit?

    I just upgraded from Vista 32 bit to Win 8 64 bit.  Vista backup is all what I have.  Is there a 64 32-bit backup restore utility?
    Any other ideas other than reinstall Vista somewhere and do a restore and then easily transfer?

    Thank you Andre,

    Since then, I understood, after installation of Vista in a VM and had the same problem, my backup has been corrupted somehow.  Fortunately I remembered a message during the installation, all the old system files would be copied to a folder C:\windows.old.  This is the process for a clean install.  Problem solved.

  • How do I change images from the album LIVE always prior to importation and after batch in Photos


    I have 1000 photos that are in LIVE format from my Iphone 6s.  I need to change this format forever I need to create slide shows and other changes.  Is this possible?  I know how to change each one individually, but obviously prefer a batch processing option.

    Thank you


    The best way to keep your original Photos to live and create a lot of JPEGs from your Live Photos would be to select all Photos live and use the file > export to export as JPEG files in a folder on your desktop. Set it the JPEG quality and the format of subfolder 'None '.

    Then import this file with JPEG files and use them for your slide show and delete them once again, when you don't need them more.  I find it safer to change the Live pictures to separate the still image video. There is a lot of work to do to revive again.

  • Questions about changing OS from Vista to XP on Satellite P100-160


    I wonder if someone could help me... I don't like Windows Vista with a passion and I would much change for Windows XP.

    My P100-160 provided with Windows Vista pre-installed, but until now I feel of it is poor to say the least! So I'd like to return the easy to use Windows XP.

    Could you get it someone please let me know if there is something special I have to do in order to get XP to run properly. I've been reading through some of the questions on the forums on this topic, but want a nice simple step 1, step 2, etc. to ensure that I do the things first.

    Thanks in advance for any assistance received.

    Best regards



    You need description step by step? Come on man :)

    Do everything simply if you want to install the XP. During the installation of XP, you will need to format the HARD disk, partition to install XP on the laptop.
    Then, after the installation of the OS, you could install the drivers of Toshiba which can be downloaded from the Toshiba driver page.

    Please note that you need XP compatible drivers! As far as I know that the Satellite P100-160 belongs to the PSPAAE series. So please choose this one if you download the drivers.

    In addition, you will need to install drivers in the correct order. Placed on the Toshiba page installation instructions could be very useful!

    Best regards

    Goodbye ;)

    Here are the different ways to reinstall Vista

    Contact the manufacturer of the laptop computer and ask them to send you to vista recovery disks to reinstall the operating system back as it was when you bought it

    they do it for a nominal cost of $


    also ask them if you have a recovery partition on your hard drive to get back to the way you bought

    you would normally press F8, F9, F10 or F11 or Alt + F10 or 0 to start to start the recovery process according to the manufacturer

    Ask them of the exact key sequence


    or borrow a vista microsoft dvd; not a HP, Acer recovery disk etc

    Make sure that you borrow the correct 32-bit or 64-bit microsoft dvd to your computer

    they contain all versions of vista

    This is the product key that determines which version of vista is installed

  • Here's how to make a clock from Vista to Tripoli; and what happens if Tripoli had a unique rule for daylight saving time?

    Windows is a time zone for any city in Libya. I wanted a clock in Vista for Tripoli. The Libya isn't, daylight savings time, so I had to find a listed city which is GMT + 2, and also did not have the time. There is a pair, Harare (Zimbabwe) and Pretoria (South Africa). So I chose them for my clock.

    Now, if it happened that the Libya had a rule time advanced single - to say on April 15 and ending on September 9. No other GMT + 2 city would have this rule. So, what should I do? The only solution I could think of is to manually set the Tripoli to a non-heure GMT + 2 city when Tripoli was the light time of the day and for a non-heure GMT + 3 City when Tripoli was to DST. But is there a way to avoid these manual adjustments? Or would MS knows about the problem of Tripoli and added to the list?
    Thank you
    BTW, what is the appropriate category for this question?

    Hello Dick Moores,.

    There is no way to change the way it works on Vista. However, there are several third-party software that you can watch that will help you accomplish this. You can use your favorite search engine and look for the application that could help you do that.


    Using third-party software, including hardware drivers can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the use of third-party software can be solved. Software using third party is at your own risk.

  • How downgrade Presario CQ45 - 104TX from Vista to XP?

    bought Presario CQ45-104TX in August 2008 and since then never formatted. But now I want to format the C: drive and install XP OS. Purchased in Hong Kong and the purchase I asked the Bank to install the English version of Vista for me. After the purchase, I divided the HDD 250 GB into four partitions. C: for OS; D: for data; I: for installation; and M: for the recovery partition.
    When I try to install XP by booting from CD XP installation, and after some time screen turns blue by saying something like «windows stopped to avoid the crash... If this is the first time, try restarting the computer...» "and these 0 x 000000000 - including the last of them being 0 x 00000007. Then I tried Recovery Manager if there is a solution for formatting a certain training and installation of Vista. And I couldn't find the system recovery, which, in my understanding, format the entire hard drive (including C, D, I, M partitions), and then only installs a copy of Vista.
    The question is how to format my C: drive and install a copy of XP? (while leaving the other intact partitions)

    Lets discuss in the first place, VISTA

    If you don't have a VISTA DVD Setup, there is no way for you to do a clean install of VISTA.

    HP recovery disks will NOT be a clean install.

    Try using the guide of orev in for clean installation of VISTA, here

    Then on XP,

    As mention in thread display, you must sliptream ICH9 sata driver.

    If you did it right, you'll BSOD error.

    Good luck
