I have a new Dell PC that has Vista preinstalled. Is it possible to remove it and go back to XP which I prefer.

Thanks All

Wow a good advert for Vista,I dont really know if you can or not,Not already having it on your computer you may have to purchace it from Microsoft,

I've never tried it, but I would expect that if you simply boot to the XP CD, you will be able to format the drive and then install XP. You will, of course, have to pay for a full version of XP.

If you have an old computer that has XP on it you can of course uninstall it from the old one and install on your new computer, without any charge as long as it's not an OEM version of XP
