Mark -

If this is a new laptop, check with the hardware vendor before buying a copy
of XP and attempting to load it.

My nephew reformatted his new Toshiba and tried to load XP from scratch and
received errors. After a call to Toshiba customer service, they indicated
that his particular model will NOT run Windows XP, only Vista - so he had to
reload Vista again from his recovery disk.

Needless to say, he was mighty pissed off...

Has anyone here downgraded from Vista to XP.
Can I do it via an internet download?
I am just looking for a pointer on what to do first.

I had heard that this was free.
