That really depends on how your computer came......with a Visat CD and
seperate Mobo driver Cd as well as Seperate Program CD ...with a Vista
The problem is that you would need to format the drive that Vista is on in
order to install XP and as such you would lose everything on that drive
including whatever programs came with your new system.If it is only a
recover partition there is usually no way to get those programs to reinstall
under XP without also installing Vista.
I would be looking on the website of the manufacturer of your
printer/scanner and try to find Vista drivers.I am running a Canon Pixma
MP170 with XP drivers on a Vista 64 bit machine.
The printer drivers work fine but the Scanner drivers are using Vista
