    I baught my computer and then i got the free vista upgrade. I instaled it and now dont want it anymore. Can i use my xp recovery disks so i can have xp again. Is it illegal.

    If i cant, what else can i do.
    I want to go from home preimum to profesional

    there is no option for the date i baught it, so i cant restore before i baught vista

    does it make a differance the fact that i upgraded

    is it safe to do that because its downgrading

    i dont have an xp cd , apart from the recovery disk

    Downgrade

    There is no way to downgrade. You can't safely install XP over Vista. You should do a clean install. If your computer comes with an emergency restore feature you could try using that to go back to XP or boot from the XP CD and do a clean install.
