Uninstalling "Vista Beta" RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need help.

    I can not seem to find a post with the problem i am having with uninstalling windows vista beta. I see there are post about uninstalling vista if you have a duo partition. My problem is that I installed it on the same partition as my xp. Somehow I got rid off my old windows file also. I can only run vista in safe mode now. So my delima is how do I format my hd and get back to my xp? Or do I have to scrap this hd and get a new one.

    Thanks in advance

  • Freerster, this sounds suspiciously like an upgraded install. If you upgraded from XP to Vista beta, your only options are to keep upgrading (to the final version of Vista) or dump the whole thing and do a clean install of something (I guess XP since that seems to be what you want to get back to). A format will make you lose all your programs and data, so be sure to back up anything you want to keep before you do something drastic.
