    If you have a copy of XP you can install it no problem.

    Do you know how to format the drive, once that is done you can run the install for XP.

    One possibility is ordering Toshiba XP recovery cd's for your model. Otherwise unless you pirate it you're going to need a key and cd. Some nice tech in your area may burn you an OEM copy if you ask. Or could switch it over for you for $.

    There are some pc's that will not be able to install windows XP. I found that out first hand from a couple that I worked on .... It has something to do with that bios set up.
