Uninstalling Vista


A

Alan

Hi,
I tried to uninstall Vista but got into terrible problems when I
reinstalled XP.
Seems that Vista overwrites the MBR (master boot record) which means
that there is no way for the the MBR to say where the new XP
installation is.
Can someone please help. How do I go back to a clean install of XP? I
really don’t want to use Vista any longer. I just don’t like it that
much.

From within XP format the Vista partition...this removes Vista
then insert your XP install CD and
boot from it. once booted and you are at the install screen, choose "R" for
repair. this will put you into C: prompt then type "fixboot" then type
"exit"
and the system will reboot. thats it you are done.
