Hi,

I remember we used to format the hard drive and install a new operating system. Can we do the same and install xp with the dv2 running vista ?

If so, what are the things we should watch out for?

Components drivers, ...

Thanks,

Josef

You may have problems installing XP on a laptop. They're not like desktops.

You could easily overwrite the boot menu and the recovery partition - leaving it dead.

Nothing wrong with Vista, leave it alone.

Yes you can but make sure you find all the XP drivers for the dv2 before you start.
