Answer . \nI don't think that you can. If I'm not mistaking, the compter that came with the Windows Media Center System is kind of locked to it in a way. The only other way I can think of is to buy a copy of Windows XP (Home or Pro) and reformat your hard drive and then put the new system disk in… and follow the propmts. (MORE)
Windows XP is a desktop operating system created by Microsoft. It was first released in August of 2001. It is a consolidation of the "NT" and "9x" lines of Windows for businesses and consumers, respectively. Windows XP is designed to run on Intel and AMD x86 processors. Windows XP was succeeded in t…he Windows product line by Windows Vista, but continues to receive security updates and still has widespread support and demand among businesses and consumers. (MORE)
According to one source, the XP in windows XP stands for 'Experience' (as in the "Windows experience"). A similar connotation was made for the 64-bit successor, Windows Vista. ------ Another possibility (but not one Microsoft marketing would have chosen) : The "XP" was meant to show the …human side of the software by using two characters that were known to be used for smilies in textspeak : the X being squinting eyes while the P would be the mouth and protruding tongue. ------- Among the Microsoft developers, XP is 2001 in Roman numerals. The more standard MMI was avoided, because the MRNSDK (Microsoft Roman Numeral Development Kit) doesn't fully support the M symbol for 1000. Of course, P is not generally included in the Roman numeral system; it was quietly added between the 1.01 and subsequent 8.0 releases of the MRNSDK. Though undocumented, and possessing obscure semantics, the P extension is widely used. In any case, it is easy to verify through experimentation that XP = 2001 . (MORE)

Yes. Any System that's capable of running windows xp home edition can basicall run xp pro. What you need to do is not different from what was done at the time of loading windows xp home edition... the only difference is that xp pro will need its own product key + activation and it is normally a bit …expensive than xp home. Good luck! (MORE)
Yes. If you insert your Windows XP CD while Windows 98 is running, it will ask you if you'd like to upgrade. It will then copy some basic files to the hard drive and restart.
It is possible, in many cases, to install and run XP on a system that originally shipped with Windows Vista. Requirements: 1. About 2 hours to perform all necessary tasks. 2. A Windows XP CD. With valid key, of course. 3. Basic knowledge of partitioning. 4. Basic knowledge of (re)installing XP. 5.… Knowledge of what a "driver" is. Pre-install: 1.Before you attempt to install XP, backup any important files. Installing XP over Vista will necessitate formatting the hard drive. 2. You need to find drivers for all of your hardware. XP's driver collection was barely adequate in 2001, let alone today. A basic checklist of parts you need to find drivers for: A. Video card (NVIDIA, ATI, Intel, S3, Matrox, etc...) B. Sound card (Creative Labs, Intel, Realtek, etc...) C. Ethernet controller (Intel, Broadcom, Realtek, etc...) D. Wireless controller (Intel, Atheros, Broadcom, Realtek) E. Motherboard chipset (Intel, Via, NVIDIA) You can find information in Vista's Device Manager, as well as on your computer manufacturer's site. The manufacturer may (or may not) also have XP drivers for the parts available. If they do not, try to find a specification list for your model, and work backwards from that. Install: 1. Restart your computer, and enter your BIOS. The key to enter your BIOS will probably be either Esc, F1, or Delete. 2. Check the "boot priority" and make sure that the CD / DVD-ROM drive is the first boot device. 3. If you have a SATA hard drive (most new computers do), find the setup for the SATA controller, and find an option to run it in "Legacy" or "IDE" mode. XP came out before SATA drives were produced, so it cannot use them without special drivers. Since XP does not have the drivers on the CD, you have to make the BIOS pretend the drives are actually IDE drives for now. 4. Save the changes and reboot. 5. Begin the Windows setup. This should be familiar to you. 6. Delete the current partition(s) on the hard drive, and tell it to format the drive with a new NTFS partition. A. If you get errors like "Windows setup could not find a hard drive on your system", you have not properly set the SATA controllers to run in legacy mode. Post-install: 1. After a basic XP installation is up and running, you will need to install the drivers. Install either the wireless or Ethernet driver first, depending on which method you use to connect to the internet. This is so you can A.) validate your Windows install, and B.) search for other drivers if you forgot one, or if you got the wrong one. 2. Install the other drivers. 3. Reboot your computer, and set your SATA controllers back to their normal mode. If you have installed the chipset driver correctly, XP should have no problems booting. It will also be slightly faster than leaving it in Legacy mode. 4. Reinstall your other software, as needed. Notes: You will likely not be able to use ay of the software that came with your Vista computer. Although most of it is likely garbage, it will also include a DVD decoder for your DVD drive. XP does not come with one. You'll have to either buy one, or use a free decoder like the one that comes with VLC. (MORE)
To change the contents of the boot loader menu in Windows XP, one must edit the boot.ini file.
If you are currently running a 32-bit version of Windows, you can only perform an upgrade to another 32-bit version of Windows. Similarly, if you are running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista, you can only perform an upgrade to another 64-bit version of Windows Vista. If you want to move from a 3…2-bit version of Windows to a 64-bit version of Windows Vista, you'll need to back up your files and then perform a custom installation of the 64-bit version of Windows 8.

Well Windows XP has been pulled from retailers like Best Buy and Circuit City, many computer stores like Computer Renaissance still have left over copies of XP. You have 3 other alternatives: the first is buy a PC loaded with XP Professional from places like Dell.com in the Business section, use a H…ard Drive with XP on it, or use torrents like the Pirate Bay and use Utorrent to open the file. If you download the file it is free but it is illegal. I advise you to borrow a friends or relatives XP disk and use a good not pirated product key. I wish you luck in finding it and hope you enjoy on of Microsoft's best Os's!!! (MORE)

I had the exact same problem with my own computer. Apparently, Windows 7 doesn't work that well with Windows XP's boot loader (when dual booting). I solved the problem (well...sort of) by booting into my Windows 7 partition, Installing EasyBCD (http://neosmart.net/dl.php?id=1) and adding Windows XP …to the boot loader again. The only thing is that when ever I boot into Xp (which is rare now) and then shut down, the Windows 7 boot loader is erased an I have to recover the computer with the Install DVD.

Not directly they're two different operating systems XP being the older one windows 7 being the new one. But most Xp programs Are compatible With Windows Seven........

In what regard? I assume you mean in a network? At home we have a Vista 64bit, XP SP2 and brand new Windows 7 system running on one wireless network. No issues with sharing of files, LAN gaming, ... everything runs smoothly. However, we noticed that you achieve the best results when setting up the… network on the Vista machine. Probably because it's in between of XP and 7. But as far as I can answer your question, yes they are compatible. (MORE)

XP stands for "Experienced". Microsoft had gained enough experience from their 9x or dos based operating systems like windows 95, windows 98 etc, and from their NT-based operating systems like windows NT 4, 2000. Therefore, they used all that experience to build an operating sytem having features fr…om both the lines, and named it Windows XP, or an experienced windows operating system. I told you what I knew, I could be wrong as well. (MORE)
Nothing was techinically "replaced", but they booted in phases rather than specific files. This lead to adding bootmgr (Windows Boot Manager) which reads a registry type file that was not used in Windows XP.

Nope, "sp2" means "service pack 2". Service packs fix bugs and (rarely) add features, but do not upgrade you to a different operating system.
