Want to downgrade from windows Vista to Windows XP
Suggest you back up you're personal data to either a CD/DVD or mem stick.
Windows in general will not allow you to downgrade. It does not matter what version you have. If you put your windows CD in your CD-ROM & boot the Win XP CD you will have to format the hard drive. Only than will windows XP install. Everything on your PC will be erased. If you’re sure this is what you want than put your Win XP CD into your CD-ROM & restart your PC. You should see; to boot to the CD press any key...... (Press the space bar). Win XP should start to load. If windows does not start to load, restart your PC & press the F8 key every two seconds. This should bring up a boot menu, use your up & down arrow keys & highlight the CD-ROM drive than press enter. Windows will begin to install. Choose format when shown on your screen. If you choose to re-install windows you will end up with double folders & that is no fun.
If I can be of more service, just post back & let me know how thing went.
