    Downgrade to XP


    Hello,


    I need a copy of Windows XP, and I can't seem to find any legitmate way to purchase a copy (other than second hand software), and I noticed that through Windows 10 Pro Commercial Licensing, I'd have downgrade rights to Windows XP (I need Pro). What would be the process for downgrading to that version of Windows? I can't find any details on this.


    Thanks!

    :)

  3. Windows XP Downgrade

    How exactly do you do a Windows XP downgrade?

    I'm going to be upgrading my machine as seen in my other thread.

    I just found out my college will be giving me an OEM copy of Windows 7 Professional.

    I know that comes with downgrade rights to XP Pro and I prefer to use XP Pro.

    I've got an XP Pro OEM disc, but no key.

    My current machine has XP Home on it.:shadedshu

    How do I go about getting the XP Pro key to install XP Pro?

    Product Key not valid for downgrade

    The problem is Microsoft never handled it.

    Downgrade rights is handled by Lenovo, etc.

    This is the information I saved before Microsoft pulled it:

    Here is the information about Downgrade rights. It is an old Microsoft link which they removed but the information still apples>

    Device Partner Center

    Downgrade rights for Windows software
    The following OEM versions of Windows software are eligible for downgrade rights.

    [table][tr][td]Windows 10 Pro includes downgrade rights to:
    • Windows 8.1 Pro
    • Windows 7 Professional
    [/td][td]Windows 8.1 Pro includes downgrade rights to:
    • Windows 7 Professional
    • Windows Vista Business
    [/td][td]Windows 7 Professional and Windows 7 Ultimate include downgrade rights to:
    • Windows Vista Business and Windows Vista Ultimate
    • Windows XP Professional, Windows XP Tablet PC Edition, or Windows XP x64 Edition
    Note Other OEM Windows 7 versions (for example, Windows 7 Home Basic and Windows 7 Home Premium) do not include downgrade rights.[/td][/tr][/table]

    Note downgrade rights are only available as long as Microsoft provides support for that earlier version,
    as outlined in the
    Windows lifecycle fact sheet
    .

    Steps for an end user to downgrade Windows software
    To downgrade eligible Windows software, end users must:

    • Purchase a PC preinstalled with Windows software.
    • Accept the Microsoft Software License Terms.
    • Perform the downgrade process to the eligible downgrade product using the media/key from a genuine, previously licensed OEM or retail product.

    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

    That's why I advise you to contact Lenovo.
