This is my first post since I became a subscribed paid member.My question is about a non genuine installation of Win7 that I have installed unwittingly. I would like to remove it and install instead WinXP if that is possible.But I have been reading that it is not an option to remove it once it is on the computer, and I can only now buy a new CD and reinstall a genuine copy. I would like to know if this is true or not so I know what to do next.
I am not that computer literate and cannot follow some of the complicated procedures I have been reading about, if that is the only way. I would love to go back to using XP but I don't know if it is in this computer or not. There is a sticker on the side of the tower that says Vista but I think that only refers to it being Vista ready. I don't think Vista was out yet so I think it must have been WinXP that came with it. I haven't used this computer for several years so don't remember. I just don't know how to find out if WinXP is in the system and it can somehow be pulled out again.
I've tried to install a copy of XP over this Windows7 but it didn't take.
I have been trying to find an answer to this problem for several months and so would appreciate anyone's help to find an answer.
My computer is a Lenovo desktop about 4 years old.
Thank you so much for any help you can offer,
