You can downgrade any higher Microsoft Windows operating system to a lower platform version like from Windows 7 or Windows Vista to Windows XP provided you have the installer CD with you. Downgrading means formatting your whole hard drive and installing a fresh copy of Windows XP afterwards. You can not downgrade a platform by just clicking a button and then in an instant you have a brand new Windows XP in your computer. That’s absurd.

If you are not familiar with the procedure of installing Windows, you might encounter some errors along the way. So better have somebody to assist you if you really want Windows XP in your computer. And before formatting your hard drive, it is good to separate the partition used by Windows XP from your data’s partition so that if ever Windows encounters an error or crashes permanently, all of your important files are intact in another partition.

You can easily upgrade Windows Vista to Windows 7 or XP. There several steps that should be followed:
Windows Vista drivers support Windows 7. So you can easily install the drive in Windows 7 that you installed in Windows Vista.
In Windows XP, you have to search it in the Internet.
You have to go to My Computer ; then select properties.
There you will find your computer model, Google it.
Now a days all laptop manufacturers stopped Windows XP driver productions. So it hard to find to find them.
Windows 7 have built in drivers. But it needs WiFi and Bluetooth driver. So Windows 7 is recommended for your laptop.
