If I get a new computer with Windows 7 already on it, format the hard drive, and then install XP, will I have any problems with the installation?
I understand that when Vista came with new machines, the only way you could do this is if you formatted the hard drive, then installed all the necessary chipsets and drivers for the manufacturer of the machine (i.e. HP, Dell drivers) before installing XP, since the machine was made for Vista only.
Is this the same for Windows 7, or should XP install without having to find drivers, chipsets, etc. to allow XP to work on the new machine?
