Downgrade from Win 7 to Win XP.

  Jove45 18:21 18 Dec 2009

My new HP laptop has Win 7 installed but a Win XP 3 disk was also provided for a downgrade, if required.
If I install Win XP disk, will I lose Win 7 forever or will I still find it on a hard disk partition for a later upgrade?
I would have liked HP customer services to have helped with this query but I just can' see how to get an email to them!

I don't think it's a permanent thing & you should be able to revert back to Win7 if required. However, I'm unaware of what you received with your laptop in terms of recovery partitions & disks, so perhaps the best possible place to ask is the HP forums click here. G
