G'day Seven Forums,
Should you like to send me an email address registered with PayPal, I would
like to make a donation in appreciation for your help.
During recent attempts to instal Win XP onto a new notebook computer
pre-installed with Win 7, I received considerable assistance from many
people across a number of very helpful sites including "Tom's Hardware",
"Seven Forum", PC User Magazine, MailStore Home, "Driver Packs", Tradewind
("DualBootPro") and there may be others of whom I have lost track.
Many, many thanks to all these sites and people all of whom played an
In the end, the original Win 7 setup was backed to an external hard drive,
the Toshiba Recovery "Console" was used to make a set of recovery DVDs, the
original hard drive was replaced with a new one of similar size and
specification, the appropriate drivers obtained and installed, XP Home SP2
installed, all the necessary programmes, folders and files installed, many
mistakes rectified and cleaned-up, a bootable recovery disc made and it is
almost where it is finished. The physical hard drive has been partitioned into
a number of various sized partitions including one which will be kept aside
for Win 7 when required and the original drive may be able to be used as
support for this. This was all done in quite an amateurish manner so
unfortunately I am not sure that I can be of much use to others with similar
problems although I would try.

I'm happy to hear that everything is still good.
There's no need for donations since our adverts for non logged in viewers cover our site expenses for now, but thank you very much for the offer. Just you visiting and getting and/or giving help is all the appreciation we need.
Thank you again,
