    Hi,
    I've got Vista and XP installed (dual boot,XP was installed first), and I want to uninstall/remove Vista and stay with my XP.
    Is it possible? If so then how do I do this?

    If Vista is installed on a diferent partition, simly format the partition from XP and you are done.

    You are wright, I forgot about it.
    Unless XP' MBR is the bootable one for the both OS's.

    XP loader/MBR can't boot Vista, so that's not possible.

    It seems that way, couse XP developers could know how Vista will boot in the future.
    Although, earlyer when I was using both XP and Vista, I was booting them thru PQ Boot, which was installed on the XP partition.

    Is it like stupidy hour in this topic or something.

    Format the partition that vista is on any way you want. Upon restart, insert xp cd, do repair, and fix the mbr.

    For people who can modify bios and all that happy hard stuff, i'm pretty shocked to see the lack of knowledge in this topic.
