Well yes and no. I believe you're asking if you can remove vista to install xp? It is possible to do so however HP/Compaq use a proprietary software to "tattoo" the motherboard which designates the unit as either a Vista computer or Other OS computer. Though it is possible to install and run XP on a Vista machine, complications may arise causing things like the OS to not properly validate and other software related issues.

Hi,

Even if you manage to install Windows XP, you will not find the drivers for sound/video because this operating system is not preferred by the manufacturer.

Hope this helps. Thanks.
