You cannot use your XP Pro license to install XP Home.

You can install XP Home, but you will have to buy XP Home first (if you can find a legal copy).

  • I try to install XP Home Edition on Windows 7

    Hello, I've been everywhere trying to solve the problem below and hope you can help me.

    I have a HP Pavilion Elite - HPE 180 t - Win 7 64 bit OS.

    System Info 9 physical memory GB - memory Modules 5 - video Card1.8GB GeForct NVIDIA GTX 260 (2 DVI, HDMI and VGA adapters) - Intel(R) Core (TM) i7 CPU 950 @3. 07 GHz - 8 GB of SDRAM DDR3-1 066 MHz (4 DIMMs) - 1 HDD 1 TB 7200 RPM SATA 3 Gb/s.

    Problem: I don't want Windows 7 and I try to install XP Home Edition with Service Pack 2 - Full Version/CD ROM.  I put the disc in and the installation option is grayed out.  What should I do to prepare my system to accept the installation?  I have my backed up system.  If I erased my hard drive would that work?  Is it possible to install over Win 7 or have two operating systems installed? I've seen advise to set the BIOS but cannot figure out how to display the screen upward at the start.  I looked in the manual of HP and do not find the information.

    Any direction is most appreciated.

    Thank you

    Windows XP is an operating system not supported and XP installation may void your warranty.

    If you want to continue using XP, I would make sure that create you HP recovery discs before you start anything.  Wipe the hard drive should allow you to install XP.  I don't know what are the options you have the disk to install XP but I get an advanced option and try a Dual Boot or install double if you want to run two operating systems.  To help you, do a search for "dual boot windows 7 and XP" or something similar and browse the results.

    Hi RandyZeuske,

    You try to upgrade Windows XP on-site. This operation reinstalls Windows XP to the same folder on your computer where it was originally installed.

    However, before you perform the upgrade on Windows XP site, back up important data to another location as disc CD/DVD, USB etc.

    For more information, see this link.

    How to perform an upgrade on the spot (reinstallation) of Windows XP

    If Windows XP was preinstalled on the computer, you can contact your computer manufacturer to order Windows XP install disks.

    Hope the helps of information.

  • Compatibility problem XP Dell Wireless 1395 mini-map WLAN driver currently installed Vista Home Edition 32 bit Service Pack II

    Hi, my OS is Windows Vista Home Edition 32 bit Service Pack 2 - installed on XP by the owner without first unintalling XP.  Although my Device Manager lists the mini-map Dell Wireless WLAN 1395 as working properly, what Windows says that it has stopped working correctly because the driver installed is not compatible with my current operating system (just one of the many questions).  Although I can get online wireless most of the time, IE and Google Chrome often freeze and there are a few minutes, I got a blue screen - not for the first time - that shut down Windows.  I note the other error message information that a fatal error has occurred that required Windows stops, so am not sure that the two problems are related or not.  I tried to find a compatible driver for what I assume is a WLAN Mini card for the original XP OS on the compatibility of Vista site, but there is no driver is listed for the Dell Wireless WLAN mini-map 1395.

    I have the Vista installation CD, but not the verification code necessary to reinstall.  It will appear somewhere on this computer under the program or the ancillary system (information) available to administrators?

    Just out of curiosity, there is a feature of rectangular white USB printed with the name "Biogear" attached to one of my ports, although he is not listed among devices on my computer since the computer laptop original owner died and I can not ask what is its purpose or what program it was meant to facilitate. I tried to remove it and it came out (the envelope detached the part inserted into the USB port) without affecting my ability to access the Internet wireless.  An internet search has a line of golf apparel and a few articles in German... Any ideas?  Thanks, Lara

    If the original owner installed Vista on XP, you need to reformat and do a fresh install of Vista or you will continually have problems multipling. If the original owner is an update from XP to Vista it is OK. However, the problems that you're seen suggest the original owner installed Vista on XP. Verification code (if found on the computer) will not be for Vista but for XP. As long as your operating system is installed, you can retrieve the key with Free Key finder software, do a search and you will find them on the internet. Also if you have the CD and ask for a new key to Microsoft you will get it at a very low price, I don't know no current tax, was $ $10,00. Since you are not the original owner (and the first owner died) both of these options may not be totally legal, unless you can provide proof of purchase or the person deseased was a member of the family.

  • reformatting from Windows XP PRO, if can install the retail version of Windows XP Edition family. This is due to the given computer and don't have the cd to repair or re - install to use fresh.

    Good. You should always do that whenever you buy a used computer.
    Risks are good if you don't.

    You do not reformat first before installing Windows. You
    Just do a clean install and do that begins by reformatting
    the disc for you.
    Just boot from the Windows CD (if necessary, change the boot order in)
    the BIOS to CD drive first) and follow the prompts for a
    clean install.

  • I recently bought an iMac with system of Maverick. I want to know I can install my Photoshop CS5 on this computer, then level to CS6 free one month in the cloud?

    I recently bought an iMac with system of Maverick. I want to install my Photoshop CS5 on this subject, is this correct?

    So I want to update without iCloud buying CS6 monthly (not want, want one-time fee)?

    According to the requirements of System. Photoshop, PS is not officially supported on Maverick and you could face several compatibility issues as well. However, we have many users who still use CS5 on Mavericks. So, if you want you can give it a try and check it out for your self.

    According to CS6 is concerned, you can easily get PS CS6 perpetual version of Creative Suite 6

    Hope that helps!

  • Windows xp pro, how can I change the use of the computer of "business computer in business network" to "personal computer in a home network?

    I can not connect to internet on my secure network.  Windows XP, I cannot enter the phrase/password network.  Whenever I go in to connect to the network, it asks that the network passwork, I come home, but he just keeps working and does not connect to the network, even if it recognizes the network and it has a strong signal.  I also tried to go into the configuration of the network and tried to change the use of the 'enterprise on a business network' computer personnel in home network, but when I restart and go back, he changed to the computer of the company and the network password is returned to an entry earlier.  I wll not accept any change in the password


    If the computer still needs to be used on the on the talk of the Business IT people business network they probably configured to adapt to their network.

    If the computer is no more a professional computer change the network configuration to work as a peer-to-peer network.

  • KB982665 keeps downloading & installing XP Home Edition SP3, NIS 2010; Kwtyapow.sys BSOD error


    Before August 11, 2010, updates, I tried uninstalling Movie Maker and microsoft frontpage as I don't need them at all.

    After that updates finished installing, an error displayed that KB983583 cannot be installed. However, it is listed on the Add/Remove Programs list. My computer came with OEM Trial Microsoft Small Business Suite, SP2, programs Dell I have long removed from my computer.

    I noticed that one of the 11 August 2010 updates, has been for Movie Maker. Because the program does not appear on the Add/Remove Programs dialog box, I installed Revo Uninstaller using erasure under Tools, Track Cleaner.  The folder and files kept reappearing after being uninstalled. So I downloaded CCleaner under Options, Include and that no longer works!

    So I went through the instructions on GeeksToGo Web site under the instructions of the Guide to spyware removal and malware and the Google Redirect so.

    Initially, the programs that I downloaded from this site worked, but after a updated August 11, especially with the KB982665.

    Last night, I was testing the programs I downloaded Malware and Spyware Removal Guide and Guide to Google redirect and when GMER.exe completed, I waited a few minutes before you touch the button works on my computer, then my computer restarted. After the reboot, GMER.exe ran once again, the screen went blue with the following message appears on the screen:

    'Kwtyapow.sys '.

    Technical info:
    Step: 0 x # (0 x #, 0 x #, 0 x #)
    (adresse LL LLL de ## # base à LL ### horodatée #L ##LL #L) ".

    I ran scans with NIS 2010, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and programs under Geeks to go from Malware and Spyware Removal Guide. With no virus or anything after the scanning has been completed.

    I posted on the Malware and Spyware Removal Guide, but I posted by mistake new information with last night and today's events because I posted at the beginning. After hitting submitted post, I saw that when I responded to my post, I pushed Geeks to go meet my original message. So here I am!

    Can you please let me know how to solve this problem? Thank you very much.

  • I bought Windows 7 Pro update, I have Vista Home Edition (what are my options?)

    Hi dear,

    I have a problem, yesterday I bought windows 7 professional upgrade, but I discovered when I ran compatibility check that it did not support my home eddition of windows vista.

    So, what should I do?

    is there a solution for this problem?

    can I upgrade to windows vista proffessional then worms & Prof. without extra cost.

    Please need advise and help

    You can not upgrade to Vista without charge - you would have to pay for the upgrade of Vista (and you can encounter the same problem depending on what version you get).  Here are the valid upgrade paths:  So if you take this path, make sure that you get the right version of Vista, so you don't end up with the same problem again.  It is has also upgraded Vista to Vista paths as well, so make sure you that you consider those as well you're actually able to upgrade Vista to another version of Vista that can be upgraded to the version of Windows7 you (and all keep because if you need to do a complete re-installation you will need all those discs and product keys.

    I would try to return the software to exchange it for a different version where you can upgrade (or a full version where you can do a custom installation without the option of upgrade).  It is about the only other possibility that buy a version appropriate - there is no other solution.  You can't do a custom using a version upgrade of the software - installation it may seem to work, but you will not be able to activate and then you will be unable to use the system.

    Sorry, we can not be more help, but these are the options.  I hope that the store will work with you.

    Good luck!
