I have a new HP Pavillion that came preloaded with Vista. I don't like Vista too much because the games that my wife plays on the older Presario with XP, won't work on the new Pavillion. I would like to replace Vista with XP as my operation system. Is this very difficult to do? :huh:

Before you go ahead you will need to find out if HP support XP drivers for your computer so you will need to post the model and number. You will also have to purchase a XP disk. Your warranty may be viod putting XP on, contact HP.
Have you tried to run the games on Vista in compatibility mode? Right click on the short cut .exe >properties>compatibility and choose XP SP2 or change it to something else to see if it will run.
