First thing you have to do is check to make sure there are XP drivers available for everything on your system. Many computer mnanufacturers are supplying hardware, etc. that only have Vista drivers available.

Next, better check to make sure what you are wanting to do will not void your warranty. That is a very real possibility.

Lastly, is the XP cd you are wanting to use a full retail version or OEM (came with another system) ?
