You will have erase the entire hard drive and partition it accordingly, then you will need to install XP first then Vista.

I went to HP and did a search for your specific model and came up with 6 different products.

The link is here. Each one of these has drivers for Windows XP so you should be able to install both Vista and XP on your system.

Hope this helps,

Alternatively, you can install XP on virtual partition, so you don't have to reformat hard drive:
