How to replace vista with the windows xp operating system?
Format & install fresh.
If your machine runs Vista it would more than likely run Windows 7.
Unless there is a special reason for wanting XP Install Windows 7.
Thats what I would do.
The only problem there is the set of drivers.
On older (Vista-era) machines XP will perform a way better than 7.
Once I did the thing at my Dell Studio 1537 and it went on just like a darn cool hot rod!

get mobo model or device id of chips .. pci unknown devices in win.. or lspci in linux.
sometimes a driverpack can pick an unstable driver and there goes the install. happens a lot with sound and wired/wireless lan chip.
