Specs: Windows Vista
I need my XP back. I have a spare drive in my Vista machine. Can i re-install XP to this drive and if so, how?

If the machine is for Vista you may want to first collect all the drivers you will need for the hardware.

If you have the drivers then yes.

It was originally an XP machine that i foolishly upgraded to vista. How do i go about putting XP on the spare HD?

I think in a higher version operating system you can't install lower version.

Can be cone - although I haven't - yet... And as Vista is now effectively becoming recent history not likely to...

Still if you trawl in google/yahoo etc. for:

dual boot vista and xp with vista already installed

you'll get a slew of useful how to sites/ references etc.

Saves me duplicating what's out there...

As system was XP originally, provided you have all drivers from earlier (or can obtain them again...) you didn't orta have any serious problems?
