Replace Windows Vista with Windows XP

Now days many notebook manufacturers(like hp, asus, msi, acer, lg etc.) deliver their products without the necesary drivers and tools for Windows XP. Instead they only include a cd for Windows Vista and claim that they do not support Windows XP on that particular product. They even do not store any XP Drivers on their official support website.

This, however, should not scare you at all. If a manufacturer says he doesn’t support Windows XP on it’s model that doesn’t mean that it cannot be installed and that the XP drivers doesn’t actually exist. What this means is that the actual manufacturer probably did this as a service for Microsoft (Vista got bad popularity world-wide, remember?) so users be forced to buy and use Vista.

That’s why I am here for. is all about bringing you the XP drivers for your particular hardware (that would be notebooks mostly I guess). If you want to replace Windows Vista with Windows XP on a particular PC (notebook or desktop) simply request it here and I will do my best to help you find the needed drivers for XP.

  18. Hi….I’m trying to help out someone who doesn’t have cash to reload a “Fujitsu Siemens Amilo LI 1718” with XP. Everything seems to be working, but there’s no sound. I get pop-ups to load “SM BUS CONTROLLER” & “MODEM DEVICE ON HD AUDIO BUS”. The audio driver I downloaded from your site will not install until the “SM BUS CONTROLLER” is installed. The light on my flash drive also does not light up as it does on other machines when inserted, but data can be transferred either way without any problems.
    The drivers I’ve downloaded from you site are:
    Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Li 1718 Audio Driver XP,
    Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Li 1718 Chipset Driver XP,
    Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Li 1718 Dislay Driver XP,
    Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Li 1718 Modem Driver XP &
    Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Li 1718 Wireless Driver XP.
    If you could assist with overcoming the pop-ups mentioned earlier it would be greatly appreciated.
    Many thanks
