downgrading vista 64 to xp 64

Specs: Windows Vista
Hello,


Ok, I currently have WinVISTA 64bit. I am trying to down grade from WinVISTA to XP and im having a bit of problems. First off, I downloaded a xp iso and burned it to a CD with alchohal 120. Then I booted to my CD then it went through the setup and than came the bluescreen.
I thought it might be my drivers so I updated all my drivers and I came upon my mother board (socket 775 G33M) and I downloaded the VGA drivers for winVISTA 64bit and when I ran the installation it said that "My computer does not meet the requirmnets for installing the software" I then tryed to download live update, and it said that "my motherboard does not support this" I also remeber a while back I tried to manage my fan control speeds and temperatures and it gave me an error that was very similar.

Specs:
640 gb western digital hd
socket 775 G33M foxconn motherboard
2.4 ghz processer.
6 gigs of ram
evga 9800 gt
XFI - xtremegamer soundcard
Windows VISTA 64 bit


Can I please get some help on this? Is this a motherboard issue and what can i do to resolve this,
Thanks,

I never heard of downloading an XP disk.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

You probably downloaded it from a torrent or P2P program such as Limewire or EMule. This usually causes problems. It's supposedly illegal to put copyrighted software online, but the laws don't seem to be enforced enough. What did the bluescreen say?
