Answers :

Well just yesterday i removed vista from a lenavo desktop. When i tried with the installation cd setup it didn't allow and got a lot of beep error from the desktop. Then I got a partition manager formatted c drive and then booted through a dos bootable cd which keeps the drivers and command files in ram and then inserted xp os cd and through command prompt started the xp setup by typing d:enter d:dir (got the list of files and folders then typed d:setup and xp setup started and installed later I got all the relevant drivers from the net. Its not easy to get drivers from net.
