Depending on what media you have you install Windows XP or "recover to factory defaults' (if XP was OEM pre-installed) or you re-image from the backup you made before installing Windows 7.

You will need to purchase a genuine Windows XP if you can find one. I see that Amazon.com still has XP Home.

XP drivers do not exist for many PCs designed for Vista or Windows 7, so you may want to check on drivers before trying to go to the trouble and expense of buying XP.

If you see an XP system for download you can be confident that it is pirated, as XP was not sold online.
