Hi all,

Yes its offical.....i have had enough of Vista. Error after error after error. I cant even install SP1 and "Microsoft Windows Vista Escalation Support Professionals" cant even help........

So, can someone please tell me how to remove vista and reinstall XP. I have an original copy of XP Home and an Upgrade to Vista Home.

Once i have XP back, Vista is going to be thrown out the window......never again!!! :)

Help would be greatly appreciated as i am starting to loose hair.....

Peter.

Boot off the XP CD and follow it through, you'll get options to wipe the machine.
However if you have a branded computer (Compaq, HP, eMachines, etc) it would be a good idea to download and burn to CD the drivers for XP for your machine model from the people who made it before you wipe it.
