    I am sure you are not the only one to have been inflicted with win8.

    You need a license for a better/proper o/s.

    If your new machine came with win 8 PRO, I believe you can install win7 or Vista instead without needing to buy another license.

    XP - I have no idea. Perhaps you can buy it on ebay/amazon

    I don't think going back to WinXP would be a good idea. Now Win7 that's what I would try getting.

    win xp has limited support left never mind the lack of support for the later direct x versions as well as a great deal of software that is out now and to come out that doesn't support xp.

    get windows 7 as an alternative.

    Why xp? Support is ending in two years, not to mention the drying up well of modern software.

    Go with 7 if you must, but I'd learn how to use Windows 8 and not let an operating system best you.

    actually i'd be surprised if there was even xp driver support for a new machine.

    XP is unlikely to work on any new machine, there simply won't be any drivers for the hardware.

    I would suggest giving Windows 8 a chance.. get a book, there are several free books available that will teach you more about it.

    Worst case, I would not suggest going further back than Windows 7.

    Another "sucks" thread. Nice.

    Downgrading can be a pain on new machines because you'll have to search for missing drivers.

    If going to XP... no comment.
    My 2010 laptop cannot handle it at all so expect even less than none support on newer machines.

    So:
    what do i need to do this?
    An older computer... Or run XP in a virtual machine.

    If you hate 8 that bad, go to 7 as most said.

    Contact the manufacterer of the computer and ask nicely for a copy of Windows 7. Better yet tell them you want a copy of Windows 7 or your money back. Or take it back to the retailer and demand Windows 7 or your money back.
