Hello,
I have a PC that was purchased with Windows 8 on it but need to have windows xp installed on it instead. Purchased with windows 8 as nobody sells computers anymore with windows xp. I know XP is out, but the software only runs on windows xp and can't run in windows 7 with xp mode. The software is an voiceprint communications software and can only be run on windows xp. Can anyone help to install xp instead of 8?

Format the drive (or buy a new one) and install from the XP disk (you have to own a copy to install).

Microsoft is going to support XP until 4/8/2014.

Drivers will be your issue for XP install.

run window 8 , start the hyper-v and set up a xp virtual machine and run your software on that virtual machine.
