    Hi,

    I think you are referring to downgrade rights? If your Vista license came
    from a manufacturer, then you need to contact them to see if they offer this
    (some do, some do not). If you have a retail copy of Vista, then it begs the
    question of why you bought it instead of XP (which is still commonly
    available)? In any case, to install XP you will need an appropriate product
    key, as the one you have for Vista can not be used to install or activate
    XP.

    I've not seen any copies of XP in my area for many, many months. This would
    be your typical shopping spot at a local Big Box retailer. Lots of Vista
    copies tho. Most people wouldn't think of stopping by their local corner
    computer store to see if they have XP.

    Of course anyone buying a computer now... say for Christmas, well they all
    come with Vista pre-installed. So you see XP is not commonly available at
    all.

    Hi,

    XP is very available at a multitude of online retailers and finding a copy
    for sale takes less than 30 seconds, even on dial up. As you stated, it is
    also available at most any pc shop. The big-box guys, yeh they only sell
    what marketing sends them, but if you wanted a '69 Mustang, would you go to
    the Ford dealer and buy a new one hoping that you can exchange it for what
    you really want later?
