I am trying to unistall Windows Vista Business from my laptop and install WIndows XP Professional. When I run boot from CD (i.e. Windows XP Prof CD), everythings starts to load mormally, but then I get an error message saying that I need to stop caching and shadowing. As far as I can tell, the system in Windows VIsta Business is shadowed. ALso, after the preload is complete, the sewtup abruptly stops and reverts to WInodws VIsta Business operating system. The reason I need to go back to WIndows XP Professional is I have a HP DesignJet plotter that will not interface with Vista drivers. Maybe I am doing something wrong, but when I download the zipped file from HP, all that happens is the zipped file unzips but no insatllation of the drivers is perfomed. I am at a lost of ideas, so anything can and will help. Thanks.
