Windows XP Installation doesn't work

Hey I want to downgrade to Windows XP Professional because Windows 8 and Windows 7 is nothing good for me, I like classic more.

I tried a Windows XP Installation CD but I can't install it.


Someone a solution?

You have to BOOT the computer from that CD/DVD and WIPE the drive of all other versions of Windows. You can Not start the installer from inside Windows 7 or 8.

By the way you can have the Classic Desktop and start bar/menu in Win 7 with Classic Shell.

Why go backwards? The support for XP will not last forever. What exactly is your problem with Windows 7?
