A "friend" after buying an HP that came loaded with so much crud it wouldn't even hardly run wiped it and then did a clean install of XP a few years back, he did a lot of remote DJ work with it. We had the devil of a time finding all the drivers but the phone tech was more than helpful and understood why we wanted to do that.
The next laptop ordered came bare with a driver disk. Don't expect to save money but the laptop will be very fast.
Loading a laptop is not for the timid or beginner.
No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
