Please help, my nephew thought he was helping me by loading Windows 7 beta on my office computer to try it out, now my (old) software won't run on it. I keep trying to do a system recovery to get it back to Win XP but can't figure out how to do it. Does anyone know how I can get XP back on my computer after the hard drive has been formatted for Win 7 beta? I need to be able to run some old Lotus software. Any suggestions would be great (and no, we don't have any recovery CD's or disks for the computer, it's about 4 years old). Thanks! Jaci

Have you tried running the Lotus program in true compatiblity mode ??
You could try running it in a virtual machine mode but that takes quite a bit of know how and setup.
XP Mode maybe - Can't remember with Beta ??
I presume you have no Full XP installation CD also.
