Solved going back to XP

Post by TracyMarie on Thu Mar 26, 2009 3:19 am

Once Windows7 has been put on my computer is there a way of going back to XP without a CD of any kind?

Thanks so much!

If you have a recovery partition with an image of Windows XP on it you can do that. If not, you'll need a CD.

Okay I have the CD now, but it's saying it is not detecting a hard drive or something along those lines.
