I was tempted to do this with my Toshiba as well, but hadn't gotten
around to it. Thanks for the post, I'll have to check to see if mine is
capable (though with the horrible customer service I've experienced at
Toshiba, I doubt I'll get any kind of sane answer).

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.
