Re: Downgrading from Vista to XP

Of the 61 driver and utility downloads for your computer on, almost all are for Vista and the few for Vista/XP may not cover all the devices you need. You'd better look before you leap. It might be best to contact Toshiba and see if the computer is even XP compatible. A lot of computers built in the past year are not. Especially laptops.

I am wanting to get rid of the monster Vista and go back to using my old OS
(XP). I am extremely tired of the incompatability of Vista with many of my
older games that I have come to love. Beside this, I also can't see any pros
in Vista over XP.

All my complaining aside, what are the steps I need to take to go back to
XP. I have an F45-AV413 Qosmio by Toshiba (Laptop). I am going to need some
step by step assistance most likely, but I have done alot of reinstalling but
never a downgrade, I have also heard that there may be some compatability

Any and all help is very appreciated, thanks in advance.
