Uninstalling Windows Vista
I recently purchased the Windows Vista Home Premium Upgrade from XP package
and am having major technical difficulties with this operating system. Is
there a way to uninstall Vista and go back to using XP without wiping my
entire system?

Re: Uninstalling Windows Vista
Depends on where you are in the process. If you finalised the upgrade,
there is a knowledge base article on how to restore XP.

How to restore a computer to a previous Windows installation after you
install Windows Vista
(927522) - Describes how to restore a previous Windows installation from the
Windows.OLD folder after you install Windows Vista. This article assumes
that you did not format the hard disk partition before you installed Windows
Vista.

Re: Uninstalling Windows Vista
I do not seem to have the windows.old folder. I upgraded from XP and did not
format my drive. I did not do a clean install. Why would some computers have
this windows.old folder and some (mine) not?
I would love to go back to XP.
Too many things are broken. Things I need to work now.
