I recently purchased a Samsung netbook, and it came with Windows 7 Starter. I would really like to put Windows XP on it. I know how to change the operating system on my desktop, but as the netbook doesn't have a CD drive, I'm kind of at a stand still. All of the torrents I've found are the kind that have the image that you burn onto a disc, and I don't know how to get around it. Does anyone know in a kind of loose step by step way how I'd go about changing the operating system? The lady that sold it to me told me it was possible, I just seem to not be able to figure it out.
Thank you in advance!

You would need a legal copy of windows xp first, as per our forum rules we can't help you with installing an illegal copy.

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
