If you don't have access to the EXACT SAME version installer of XP you may be out of luck, XP is very finicky where / how it will install to; is the sticker with the Windows XP activation key still viewable on the PC?


I'm sorry, I have to go out for a while; perhaps someone else will help out until I return.

How to restore a Windows 7-based computer to a previous Windows installation by using the Windows.old folder

-or-

What version of XP is on the sticker with Product Key. you'll need to find an installer for that version which is OEM SP3 to clean reinstall with the key. You can find them on the web, but read the comments closely to make sure nothing is added, and rightclick scan the downloaded ISO with your AV before burning to CD.

So you need an XP Home with SP3 OEM installer if it won't roll back from windows.old folder to XP - if that's what you want to do.

You can also google the exact make and model + RAM upgrade to see what it would cost to upgrade RAM to 1-2gb. Read all of the results to glean your max ram and the specs needed. Ask back with your make/model if you need help.
