Here goes i bought a Toshiba satellite laptop with Vista installed as the os, 3 Months have passed now and try as i might
i cannot get used to Vista and more to that, i much much prefer my old os which was Windows 2000 pro sp1 maybe its because
im to old and to set in my ways to even try to get along with Vista but there you go i just want my old OS back.
So my next course of action was to wipe my hard drive and instal windows Pro on my new machine this is where i need some advice from you guys.
I have Two copies of windows pro 2000 and one copy of windows xp all were purchased with seperate Pc's made by Dell computers which have since expired and gone to computer heaven.
after wiping the Toshiba's hard drive clean I tried installing these disc's on my Toshiba, to my horror i was promptly told that this software is only capable of being used on Dell machines.
Is there a work around on this where i can use these disc's or will i have to yet again buy yet another copy of windows xp when i have obviously been stung 4 times already ?
my appreciation to all that answer and comment in a respectful manner
