downgrading to windows xp RRS feed

  • Question


    I am a user who bought windows vista home premuim last february, and I am wondering if there is any way for me to be able to back-license to a version of windows xp. I am also wondering if i need to purchase a copy of xp in order to put it on my laptop, or if i can use it just by having vista.

  • Sorry, but there are no downgrade rights to Windows XP from Windows Vista Home Premium.  If you wish to install Windows XP in lieu of Windows Vista, you would need to purchase a genuine "Full Version" of Windows XP and perform a complete clean install.
