I recently upgraded my XP Media Centre PC to Vista Home Premium. I have to many bugs and problems with vista for my liking and would like to revert back to Media Centre. Media centre was installed on my computer when i bought it but I have the back up files on disc. Is it possible to downgrade? If so, how would I go about that.

You can't downgrade from Vista. You will need to install a fresh XP install from scratch.

If Media Centre was installed on your PC when you bought it then you should have some reinstall discs. You can use those to restore the computer to its original OS.

Make sure you backup everything you need for later, as this procedure will most likely delete the contents off of your hard drive.

what's your pc specs? what problems are you getting?

i was in the same boat but i stuck with vista, fixed all the so called bugs (sometimes using other programs to overcome/replace a crashing program) and vista became more and more amazing! there's just so much to it!

but if you really want to go back then i'd suggest backing up, reformat and reinstall xp mce.
