Ok, I have been using dinosaurs for a decade, so used to win xp pro and really just want to stay with it. All my bots were built around it, I can find my way around it. I can pull up a cmd prompt. Update drivers with ease etc... My question is this. I know I cannot format this laptop and install win xp pro on it because of the chipset etc... Isthere any overlay OS or work around that can get me back to win xp without losing this quadcore cpu, 8 gb ram etc...? I seriously don't even want this laptop for free right now. Please help, anyone!
