how to reinstall XP after having Vista on?

  ripvan 15:05 03 Oct 2008

I have an Acer laptop that I upgraded from xp to vista using the Acer offer at the time.My daughter preferes XP so I want to go back to it.I can't just use my XP pro disc as the laptop says that the newer version of windows won't allow.So I think I am going to have to reformat the HD?Can anyone give me instructions on this or a link.A lot of stuff on google search is about just putting Xp disc in and running it etc but I will need to start from scratch
many thanks.

Boot from the xp cd, it will allow you to format and install.

Make sure you have all the drivers required prior to the xp install.
