I want to change my current OS from Vista home premium to XP home. If I buy an original XP OEM disc and did a clean install, would this work or not. I have heard lots of different stories about changing from Vista to XP. I know I can't downgrade, but if I did it this way would it be OK.
If you make sure the XP disc has SP2 or 3, then it would recognise the Sata drive w/o having to install Sata drivers first. Know this because I have recently downgraded from Vista to XP on an Acer Aspie 5920G. Make sure you all rhe drivers for your model on a CD/DVD and istall them after XP has installed.
