I contacted Gateway about downgrading and they won't send a disk and said that they don't have the drivers to support the move either. So can someone tell me step by step or with provide links on how to downgrade? Also, which version of XP would be best to buy since I only have XP on discs for other computers. Thank you so much in advance. m 0 l Sheshe March 11, 2010 4:16:54 PM saran008 said:This link can help you I think, It is about creating Dual boot with Vista & XP.

The Dual Boot, Virtural XP does little to help anyone other than big business. I need the features of XP to work, my programs to run and produce just like they use to under XP and most of all I don't want IE8. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
