Well just yesterday i removed vista from a lenavo desktop. When i tried with the installation cd setup it didn't allow and got a lot of beep error from the desktop. Then I got a partition manager formatted c drive and then booted through a dos bootable cd which keeps the drivers and command files in ram and then inserted xp os cd and through command prompt started the xp setup by typing d:enter d:dir (got the list of files and folders then typed d:setup and xp setup started and installed later I got all the relevant drivers from the net. Its not easy to get drivers from net.
I've had a similar problem trying to revert a friend's laptop back to XP... i got everything working but the sound, unfortunately, XP does not widely support HD audio, so there aren't XP drivers for the new sound cards in laptops.
try to download belarc advisor software. Run this in your vista OS and send it to me so I can check your hardware specs. This is the only way to avoid problems in the future or before you start the formatting.

Yes you can. But make sure you obtain the drivers of your system. After formating, things like camera, sound, bluetooth, LAN e.t.c might not work. So you must have all your system's drivers before formating. You can always get them from the internet.
