My updates to the printer automatically downloading to a C:// drive for my hard drive which was labled H:// after the format. I had to reformat the computer partitions after backing up my hard drive to disk and relabeling the Hard drive back to C:// once the updates were installed to the correct drive the scanner downloaded the needed updates and began working. if anyone needs to know how to reset your partitions in the hard drive, all you do is after inserting your boot/install windows disk at the time of asking were to install windows a setup window will appear on the screan. at that time you may install another version of windows or delete the partition by pushing F2 to format, or in any case at the bottom will lable correct button to push to format the desired partitions. REMEMBER ONCE DOING THIS ALL YOUR INFORMATION ON THE COMPUTER WILL BE DELETED! So I strongly urge you do back up all information. THIS INCLUDES ALL OF YOUR DRIVERS! if you do not back up your drivers you will loose essential data to run your computer again including your network controller adapter<-- this is needed to get online it is basically your ethernet/ internet port which you may want especially to download the new drivers to other programs Video drivers etc. The Whole process is a couple of hours to complete but if you can take the risk in trying this you'll save yourself time and money getting ripped off to have someone else do it. Where by the way charges are incured with system diagnostic runs to make sure places of computer programming and system tech supports are covered if anything is to go wrong with the computer. then youll laugh when you see the bill after not having a computer for a week!

Sorry, but if I read your post correctly, there are no "downgrade" instructions for going from Windows Vista to XP SP2. The only way back is to totally reformat the drive and reinstall XP SP2.

Hope this helps.
