Replace Vista with Windows XP?
Sep 11, 2008

I'm about to upgrade to a new computer system and, unless I purchase locally from a tech-savvy shop, I'll probably not have a choice between Vista and XP and will initially be stuck with the former. If I end up in this situation, can I purchase a licensed XP (either Professional or Home) and simply install it to overwrite the Vista? Would some the Vista-associated DLLs, etc, remain on my machine to cause havoc? Would uninstalling Vista after suiccessful installation of XP generally deal with most of these problems?
