Hello, I'm really interested in downgrading my 64 bit windows 7 to a windows xp 32 bit. My question is can and how can it be done if possible? I'm not interested in having my mind changed either , lol . I've given windows 7 1 year chance to prove itself to me and it hasn't, it's just frustrating to use . I got stuck with this because my 32 bit crashed completely . MB., Hd's, speakers you name it , it all went in a black out . I miss the easy use of my past systems and compatibility also the fact of having to do without and finding alternative programs to use. What I'm looking for if it's possible is to wipe out windows 7 completely , nuke the boot system as if it never existed.
Thanks in advace :)

Hi SWF, do you have the XP 32 bit installation disk + the drivers disk for your PC?

Sure it can be done. If you have an XP license and an installation disc. Throw the disc in and off you go. Make first sure though that you can find ALL drivers for XP. That is not obvious with a PC that originally came with Windows 7. Here are places where you can get XP:

You'll be good for 500 days. Then Microsoft will stop all support of XP. But maybe by then we have the early trials of Windows 9.
