    Hey guys, I plan to upgrade my XP to Vista to try it out. Is it possible to downgrade Vista back to XP if I end up not liking it? If so how? Thanks

    You should be able to format your HDD and reinstall XP.

    Nope! You'll have to do a full fresh install of XP to go back.

    If you have room to spare, I'd just resize your paritions and make room for the Vista install to be seperate. That way the only thing you need to do is restore XP's boot loader should you decide that Vista is ass.

    Well dual Booting isn't easy if you start with Vista.

    And its pretty easy either way (one more step going Vista -> XP).
