I wish to remove Vista from my computer and use Windows xp instead. The vista install was not an upgrade.

Can I reformat the HDD from the Windows XP disc or does this have to be done Vista disc?

Many thanks
 
if its a pre built machine you will have to keep the recovery partition - if its a system you have built there is no reason why you cant downgrade

where ya been guybrush?...good to see you

try the sp1` which just went to the public before you go back to xp, you might be happy with the os...give the box a full defrag after then sp and then decide
 
If you have a proper XP disc you should be able to format the HDD etc with that no problem.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
