Believe it or not, my favorite OS is still Windows XP. I have a secret setup that allows me to get no viruses nor spyware. Well, I can’t tell you that but here’s another tip on how to downgrade from Windows Vista to XP. (I’ve mentioned last time how to do it but this is if that doesn’t work.)
Yes, your computer will be more reliable with XP if you are on a PC. LMAO. :p
When PC starts press F2 to go into ‘Setup’ Options.
Go to ‘System Configuration’
Select ‘SATA Opreation’ which configures the operating mode of the integrated SATA hard drive controllers.
There will be three options.
- Disabled (SATA controllers are hidden)
- ATA (SATA is configured for ATA mode)
- AHCI (SATA is configured for AHCI mode)
I had Windows VISTA at this Laptop but I wanted Windows XP for a while. Whenever I was trying to install Windows XP; it gave me ‘Blue Screen of Death’ and the system had to be rebooted.
What I had to do from Setup Options; I changed the configuration of above setting from AHCI to ATA.
I was able to install Windows XP, alright. Changing this setting will disable your old installed OS to run and you have to reinstall the OS again anyways.
Okay that’s it.
