    help needed Want to remove Windows7


    Hello!

    I installed Windows7 1 week ago to try it and now want to go back to Windows XP. I have disc of XP one original and one not, tried with both to run the installation, but when i got the message "Windows is starting..." I think this is right before the Windows patrition program, it freezes and there is a blue screen telling me that i have to check for viruses, to scan the HD, etc. Suggestions how to remove my Windows7 in different way, since i can't access the windows xp program?

    I have now Windows7 Ultimate N installed on laptop HP.

    P.S. Excuse me for my bad english!

    Best regards,

    Welcome to SF!

    I'm sorry you don't like Windows 7. Is there anything we can help you with?

    In any case, to remove it, I suggest booting from the original disc. Viruses won't be a factor if you're not in Windows.
