HELP! Need to uninstall Vista Beta
I need to un-install the Vista beta from this P.C and put XP back on, the
problem is I used an upgrade disk to install XP in the first place.

When I got to install the XP again it asks me for a windows 2000, ME, 98, 95
or NT disk, which I don't have anymore! I don't want to be stuck with Vista
on here as there is too many compatibiltiy issues at the moment!

Help would be very much appreciated. Even if it's just a phone number for
microsoft support.

You need a Win2k/ME/98/95 installation CD. Can't do it without it.

What kind of help do you think you can get? MS support can't help you. To
install an upgrade version of XP requires you own a qualifying OS which
either is installed or you insert the shiny media when asked. So you're
options are simple.

1. Acquire another CD for a qualifying OS, such as through EBay or other
means
2. Buy a non upgrade copy of XP, OEM or full retail, in the version of your
choice.
