Help erasing hard drive?

  akilees 10:34 14 Apr 2007

Hi guys I stupidly upgraded to windows vista ultimate and I cant get on with it, I cant remove programmes or use any of my software like nero 7 and my coms spec is too slow for it but I cant get rid of it now, so I really want to erase my hard drive and start again. Some one please help me?

I am assuming you want to go back to XP click here go about half way down the page to "Steps to Clean Install XP" follow the instructions.

Set PC to boot from CD as first boot device (in BIOS)

Boot with XP CD in the drive and follow the prompts to format the drive/partition and install XP.

Borrow a XP CD then install as above but when it come to the part where you insert the license key put in the key that came with the upgrade disc.
