I have the following problem:
I am on a laptop that uses windows vista as operating system.
This operating system was already installed along with some other programs.
My computer has become very slow and gives all these system failures etc.
I have my data all backed up, so I wanted to reinstall the operating system,
but the windows vista installation disk was not included when I bought this laptop.
So I thought lets get rid of windows vista and install windows xp which I prefer anyway.
So I changed the booting priority threw in my windows xp cd,
but got an error when I tried to install windows xp,
because windows vista was preinstalled so I couldn't undo the installation of windows vista.
So my questions:
How do I get rid of the preinstalled version of windows vista, and be able again to install my windows xp ?
or if thats impossible: How do i reinstall windows vista without a disk ?
(I haven't made any recovery points to which i can rollback the computer )
