    Trouble in downgrading Windows Vista to Windows XP

    Windows Vista was behaving very unstable on my HP Compaq Desktop PC since I installed it. As I was tired of performing troubleshooting steps constantly, I have decided to downgrade it to Windows XP. But whenever I try to install Windows XP on my PC, compatibility assistant prevents the installation process. What is the actual procedure required to downgrade from Windows Vista to Windows XP?

    You cannot downgrade from the higher version to the lower version.
    You cannot use recovery or other tools to downgrade.
    You need to reinstall the windows XP in your system after formatting the disc.
    There is no other way.

    You want to grade your window to Xp.
    but you cann't downgrade higher to lower verison of window.
    So if you want to install XP then buy XP CD .
    Then install it for using it .
    It will solve your problem.

    you cannot downgrade any higher upgrade to lower upgrade...
