You will have to format the drive in order to do this and do a clean instal. you will have to do a fdisk as well, it's the only way to get rid of vista and if the machine came with vista you may not be able to use all devices as vista drivers are only for vista.

Read the Thread here.

Note:-
Generic Host Process for Win32 Services or svchost.exe is a legal and essential component of Windows which is used to host services which run from dynamic-link libraries (DLLs).

Please note that legal svchost.exe should reside in Windows\System32 folder and should not appear in startup list.

If it does appear, do a Malware/spyware/virus scan on your PC.

Generic Host Process for Win32


Hi

This may be because of the corrupt files or due to an virus infection, how ever you can fix this problem by replacing the corrupted files with clean system files. For this you require a OS cd. Follow the instructions below.

This process is called System File Checker(SFC)

1. Go to Start, then to Run, and type in " SFC.EXE /SCANNOW " ( only text in bold) press Enter.

2. This would ask you to insert the Windows XP / Vista Installation CD.

If problem still persists, feel free to revert back.
