    I got a windows vista computer and it came with an upgrade dvd. So i upgraded my windows xp to vista thinking I could change it back when I needed to use xp but I can`t . I went into the recovery console and it gave me 3 choices that I dont understand. I can now only use the vista version on both computers. How can I get Xp back?

    From this, I would recommend you to back up your data first and start afresh. This is the only solution I can think of getting back XP. Let's see what others have to say. :)
