RE: can I use my Vista OEM key to install XP Pro over the top
With the programs that you can't install, right-click on their
setup.exe>properties>compatibility mode>install in XP SP2 mode.
Also, if the laptop is brand new, check at motherboard or comp's
manufacturers website to see if XP Drivers are available for it.
Being new hardware, it might not know XP exists as drivers not written for it.
