Hey guys, I want to change from vista to xp but would love to keep my music library and docs. Is this possible, and if so, how do I go about doing this?

Thanks a million!

Hello Doomed and welcome to Geeks To Go

Not impressed with Vista?

I'm not surprised, however all is not lost.

Have you considered Windows 7 as it's far superior and here's what you will need to run it.....

Regarding your music and documents you could back them up to an external drive, (a person can never have too many external drives), and install 7.

Thanks for the replies! I've heard windows seven is better, but I only have the windows xp disc. And don't feel like shelling out the $ for 7. II don't have any externals, only jump drives and not enough haha. I've heard about partitions, that won't work? I'm not very computer savvy.

Ok

Is this a branded machine like say Dell or HP?

If it is then what is the exact make and model of the machine so that we can check if it is XP compatible?
