To begin, I have the Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop that come with Vista Home Basic Operating system. I'm trying to install windows XP services pack 3 but at the same time I'm having problem, because on the booting process automatically the laptop shut off. I believe is something to do with the drivers or NTFS, also when I reinstall the Vista Home Basic Operating system there are no problems and the laptop won't shut off, and it will proceed the complete booting process while is installing.
Any advice or tips to run Windows XP on Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop. I also do understand there are complication on downgrading Vista to Window XP.
