Changing OS: Vista to XP

  1. My question is: if you purchased a laptop with Vista pre-installed and wanted to go back to XP, is that doable??

    Thanks for any help with this.............

    Yes. But you are going to need a valid copy of XP. Before you do all this I'd check the manufacturer's website to make sure that they have drivers for stuff like the trackpad, LAN port, wireless card, ect for XP. They probably do, but if it came with Vista preinstalled I guess there is a chance they didn't feel it necessary to supply XP drivers.
