    Hello all i was currently using windows xp and i downloaded and updated my pc to windows 7. anyway ive found that i hate windows 7 and alot of my programs wont work so i want to reinstall xp. the problem is is that my pc used to have a recovery partition. (drive d) but now my drive d is empty. how can i recover my pc to xp? or will i need to download xp?

    also my c drive only has 11gb free instead of 160gb because theres a folder there called old windows that has all my files from xp in it?

    you can revert back to XP if you right click on your C drive and if i recall correctly there is an option to go back to XP

    this is provided that you haven't deleted the windows.old folder on the c drive
