Hi, I have a question, can you go into safe mode on windows vista an still use wireless internet. I have tried starting safemode with networking, however it still doesn't work.

Also how do you run windows xp temporarily on vista?

This is more suited under Computer support rather than Non-Aviation. I've moved your topic for you.

I think the only way you can run windows xp on a vista installed machine is run whats called a 'dualboot.' all it does is take a section of your vista hardrive and wipe that and then install xp on it. So now when your boot your computer, vista is the 'main' operating system and a section of hardrive is now ran by xp.

I have also forgot to mention another thing that will work if you would like to run xp on a vista machine. It's called 'formatting the hard drive.' All it does is wipe everything clean from you hardrive (it won't even boot up), and then install xp.
