  1. I currently have vista on this machine and i have had nothing but problems...

    i want to go back to xp.... i know i cant do it without wiping

    is there a way of doing it without having the xp install disk?

    i can get one its just really annoying to have to buy it...

    You can wait until Microsoft starts giving out free XP licenses :p

    You need an XP license, no way around that.

    you need a xp install disk. period. there cheap now, about 80 bucks, give or take a few dollers.

    Pc rules to live by. rule #1: NEVER EVER EVER EVER BUY A PC WITH A NEW OS OR A NEW OS DISK UNTIL THEY RELEASE THE FIRST SERVICE PACK.
