You cant 'downgrade' from vista, you will need to clean install XP again!

For this you will need a full XP install disc and your bios boot order set to boot from your optical drive (CD/DVD rom) as priority boot device.

If you have any probs with this let us know and myself or another staff member will help you to set it!

Its a shame you dont like vista.....you need to give it a few months (not a day or two) to work your way around the OS, then trust me, you will never look back.

Anyway, good luck Big Grin
