But I was talking about installing Windows XP onto one of my other Windows 7 netbooks. I was thinking of doing this by taking an image off of my Windows XP netbook.By going to where it says advanced system restore on Windows 7. Then where it says advanced recovery options-replace everything on your computer with an image you created earlier. And then take an image of my Windows XP operating system on the Windows XP netbook I have got, with all of my programs installed. By putting it onto a USB stick or a CD OR DVD. I would do this where in system restore,where it says back up your files. And then on Windows 7,where it says restore your system with an image you created earlier in system restore. And it does go on to say that this will replace everything on your computer. So will that replace Windows 7 with Windows XP? And as it is just an image taken off of my other Windows XP netbook will it work? That is the question I am trying to ask. as I can find nothing on this on the web. On the web it just says about installing Windows XP on a Windows Vista or Windows 7 netbook using a thumb drive or CD. But by using a real copy of Windows XP,a CD. Which I do not have as the CD of the operating system never came with any of my netbooks. Andrea Borman.
