Dear community, I've just installed Vista on my pc but XP is still there.I mean both systems are on the hard drive.And i am not able to access XP any more. How can i get rid off one of the system.And i deffinately wanna erase one of them.My pc is AMD Athelon 1.00 GHz with 504mb RAM and 32 bit operating system.Tell me also how to get rid off Vista and keep the xp. Thank you
Do you have a restore point on your computer previous to installing Vista ?, if so return to that point. Vista requires a much higher specification to run and your machine is barely capable of running XP. I hope you have the original XP CD and disks for all your software programs ( or a full drive backup somewhere safe). I would suggest you save your working files (usually all in my documents), format the machine and start from scratch. Terry
Vista is not installed "over" XP but in addition to so there should be the option to boot to either at startup. I must agree that the specs of iazmats' computer are minimal for XP so I assume he's installed Vista as a trial and found it doesn't work for him and needs to remove it. Vista alters the boot record (MBR) so that it is seen as the default system even after it is removed hence the links I posted to resolve this. Usual MS clumsy software in my opinion.
I dont believe this is right,i have installed vista on a xp machine,xp is no longer available,or even exists,unless i had set up a duel boot system.Also,if i had two systems installed,it would take up drive space,which it doesent.
