help needed Want to remove Windows7

Hello!

I installed Windows7 1 week ago to try it and now want to go back to Windows XP. I have disc of XP one original and one not, tried with both to run the installation, but when i got the message "Windows is starting..." I think this is right before the Windows patrition program, it freezes and there is a blue screen telling me that i have to check for viruses, to scan the HD, etc. Suggestions how to remove my Windows7 in different way, since i can't access the windows xp program?

I have now Windows7 Ultimate N installed on laptop HP.

P.S. Excuse me for my bad english!

Best regards,
Stanimir

Welcome to SF!

I'm sorry you don't like Windows 7. Is there anything we can help you with?

In any case, to remove it, I suggest booting from the original disc. Viruses won't be a factor if you're not in Windows.

Hello Jonathan and thanks for your fast reply.

I booted from the original version of XP and when i'am at this step after loading system recovery tool, toshiba drivers, etc. there is "Windows is starting", and there i got blue screen and i can't continue . My laptop have another drive where the win is installed i think, not C:\ or D:\, but not 100% sure about this.

Thanks in advance again!

Best regards,
Stanimir

Are you loading the SATA drivers for your hard drive?

I got error looking like this: http://pcauthorities.com/images/blue-screen.jpg , but with different message. It says something like: Check for viruses, scan for bad sectors or any newly installed soft.
