I read somewhere that it was possible to downgrade to xp from windows7. Can it be done or not, I tried after I bought a new laptop and it had windows7 on it, I know I should try and stick with it but it's taking me twice as long to do things, I really want xp back. I have an XP disc but the laptop just keeps telling me somethign about unplugging hardware every time I try and install the damn thing.
Any help appreciated

    Pete, it is possible but usually there is some sacrifice of power through downgrading - normally you loose the power of a SATA drive, here's more info : https://freewarebb.com/topic/60487-installing-windows-xp-after-windows-7/
