I need to roll back from windows 7 to windows xp on a hp g27 notebook problem is, is i need a boot disk that won't cause the machine to blue screen. So the question is how do i create a boot disk so the hp g27 notebook will not blue screen so i can get this version of windows installed on it. Its not my idea i just need to get it done for a friend.

What is the issue with Windows 7, and what makes you think that rolling back to Windows XP will fix the issue?

There is no issue with the hardware, computer, os per say its just that this person would prefer to have windows xp installed rather than windows 7
