It's possible if Acer has all the XP drivers for your model. You will need a licensed XP disk, if you have a sata hdd it will need drivers on floppy to enable it.
If no floppy drives, you will need to slip stream drivers onto a XP cd.
All data and programs will be lost in the process.
Acer support will be lost.
Much easier to learn to use Vista.

If the disk is sp2 or higher no SATA drivers needed. I put XP Professional sp2 on my laptop with sata with no problem at all. I tried it with a plain XP disk with no sp not even sp1 and it failed. Sp2 and higher have the drivers. I recremend XP Professional for laptops because it has better networking.
