Hello, i am planning to buy a new laptop without OS. but my question is would i be able to install windows xp genuine in the laptop?
Since my office work can only be done on Windows Xp, i dont have an option for windows 7.
The laptop i am planning is HP Notebook HP 430 with free DOS.

Is there something associated with the manufacturer regarding windows installation issues.

I dont want an issue afterwards, so .. Please people help me out with this problem or suggest some solutions.

Thank You

Check on the HP website that there are WinXP drivers available.
Other than that - it should be a smooth ride.
