Come on first, site of the manufacturer of your computer, check to see if your model computer has XP drivers available for it...

If the XP drivers are not available for your model, forget the idea of dual boot; or use a Virtual Machine...

Read the info above on the dual-boot them.

  • If I install Windows Vista Home Premium to my Windows XP is it go faster?

    Hi, I want to know if I install Windows Vista Home Premium on my Windows XP Home Edition it will go faster? Now, Windows XP is very slow and my son wants to play online games and he can't because the computer will have to slow down. So I was wondering if I install the Windows Vista disc I had, this will make faster? and the computer I have an adapter to receive Web, couldn't that make it slow to? Please answer.

    It depends on the specifications of the system... XP might be infected with something, if its slow. You have it scanned with an AV program or something? Vista needs a bit more ram than XP. So, if there is not enough ram in the system, Vista can be just as slow (or slower) than XP. If the conversation of youre cable is an ethenet cable, you need it. Or you will not get on the internet

    Huh?

    Try to understand, taking the repeated mention, I guess you're saying that you have Windows Vista Home Premium (32 bit) and you do not have any audio.

    Have you spent at the web page of the manufacturer of your computer support and their section downloads & drivers and got the last audio/HiFi drivers for your specific hardware?  They are those who produced and load of the equipment.

  • How long an installion take to install Windows 7 Home Premium on a new hard drive in minutes, hours. ?

    Its seems its time consuming to install Windows 7 Home Premium

    It varies depending on factors such as the speed of the processor, memory, and even the speed of the hard drive. I've seen facilities vary from 14 minutes, 20 minutes to an hour to several hours, but is upgrade scenarios. Because you perform a custom installation, would be no more than 20 to 30 minutes. If you experience problems during installation, try unplugging all non-essential devices (printers, disk external drive, thumb drive, scanner), the installer of Windows 7 could try to detect them.

  • How can I re install windows 7 Home premium

    I downloaded widows 8 two weeks ago and, even if I like it, I found that it is not compatible with my Sony VAIO 3 year one-piece desktop computer because it windows * does not download some drivers like the built-in webcam and microphone.

    I need to re install Windows 7 Home Premium for which I bought through for download on the Microsoft Store in the United Kingdom. I have a product key and the purchase of reception ect. How I can do what I've searched and searched and cannot find any where on the internet that shows me how to do this. I would appreciate your advice and help, and more important again some instructions.

    When double boot with older versions of Windows, you must install the older version of Windows first (in this case Windows 7) on the boot drive. Create a partition, and then install Windows 8.

    Another thing, you would need a full version of Windows 8, Windows Pro 8 is an upgrade and you used to update the license of Windows 7 Home Premium eligible you want because you would be in non-compliance.

    Buy a full version of Windows 8

    If you want to build your own PC and install Windows 8, Windows 8 Pro or an additional operating system running in a virtual machine or a separate partition (including a Mac), you can buy Windows 8 or Windows 8 Pro System Builder (OEM versions). If available in your country or region, Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro System Builder products can be purchased at participating stores, you will need to ask a the sales representative for more information. This version does not support the customer.

    If the license for Windows 7 Professional, you have access to is a retail version update or complete, you can use the product key and the Express upgrade to Windows 7 Edition Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional. First of all, check that the edition of Windows 7, you are upgrading is already enabled (if it isn't, you will encounter complications and that you might start all by performing a clean installation). Click Start, type Anytime Upgrade, click on the option enter a key, enter the key of Windows 7 Professional on demand, click Next, wait while checking the key, accept the license agreement, click on upgrade, wait while the software upgrades, (it may take 10 minutes or more depending on the if updates are required) your computer restarts automatically, after the reboot, Windows 7 will notify you updating the computer, the computer will restart once more automatically and will be completed the upgrade, a window will appear notifying the upgrade was successful and your computer is ready to use, click Close, you should be upgraded to Windows 7 Professional your files, programs and settings retained.

    Please note that the Express upgrade does not support OEM, MSDN-Academic, Volume (the student faculty licenses) license. If you are in possession of all these brackets, you will need to save and do a custom clean install. If you want to do it, please backup your Windows 7 Home Premium or according to edition currently installed. Some licenses for Windows distributed to tertiary level students are not perpetual, which means that you cannot continue to use the software after a course or graduating.

  • My computer is silent. I think XP audio drivers are corrupted__If I install Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade it will provide new drivers for sound card?

    My computer fell silent months ago after a download. I checked the healthy zone and everything is on and not anywhere in the system. I did a scan of unknown quality and that indicates a problem with the audio drivers. I tried to download new divers from Microsoft.

    Rather than spending all the resources on the Windows XP system, I am considering Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade. Upgrades include new audio drivers which will replace or overwrite the existing problem and make it all work as it should again.

    You can not spend XP as it's a clean install to get W7 on your PC.  To help transfer data documents, use the transfer on the W7 DVD program.

    Before doing that I suggest you download the Advisor to upgrade to W7 from Ms. If your PC passes, then you go to the next step which is download W7 drivers for your video card, sound card, printer, etc. and their storage on a USB for post install W7.

    If your PC isn't at the height (lack of drivers for one or more of your cards), then I would stick to XP. There is no guarantee that Vista drivers work in W7.

    If you stick to XP, download the drivers for specific sound card XP the PC manufacturer's Web site, they can be more up-to-date than those at Ms.

  • How to install Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit?

    Hello! Can someone tell me how can I make Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit to 64-bit?

    Here's my question: -.

    1. I bought a version of Windows Vista Edition retail family Premium, the package has only the 32-bit support (DVD). I found a few website say that the product key for the retail version of Windows is for 32-bit and 64-bit, as long as we use 32 - bit or 64 - bit on a single computer at a time. If I'm wrong, anyone could answer my question?

    2. now, I plan to move from 32 bit to 64 bit, my problem is that the version sold at retail of Windows that I purchased only contain 32-bit media:-

    (a) is there a way I could install the 64-bit Windows?

    (b) is it possible I could get 64-bit support?

    (c) could I use media in Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit retail a friend to install on my computer? And after installation, I can activate Windows with my product key?

    Looking forward to the responses, thank you.

    Do you a clean install from 32 bit to 64 bit.

    http://www.Microsoft.com/windowsvista/1033/ordermedia/default.mspx

    Link above is how you get 64 bit DVD, if you have a retail license.

    You can use any Microsoft Vista 64-bit DVD and use your 32 bit key as you say it's Vista Retail

    Or borrow a good Microsoft Vista DVD (not Dell, HP, etc).
    A good Vista DVD contains all versions of Vista.
    The product key determines which version of Vista is installed.

    There are 2 disks of Vista: one for 32-bit operating system, and one for 64-bit operating system.

    If install a cleaning is required with a good DVD of Vista (not HP, Dell recovery disks):

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu
