If you did not get any recovery media or a Windows CD with your laptop, you will need to get in touch with the company you purchased the laptop from (you can NOT legally download Vista, or any other version of Windows). Under UK law, the OEM MUST provide you with an original Windows CD (this is in accordance with the Microsoft OEM agreement, so just point them to that if they try and argue).

You should be getting in touch with Acer support for this. I can tell you that many people are removing Vista and installing XP on to their computers because of the problems that they are having with Vista.

To properly install XP, you will have to buy a lagitimate copy so that you can register it.

If you really want to put back Vista, you should have the activation codes with your original installation software that came with the computer. If this does not work you will have to call Acer support. There may be some issues that are not generic. Acer like many of the brand names may have specific requirements.
