I have recently installed Vista RC1 evaluation, still looks good, even if it took a bit of getting used to.

Now I am finding that any game or software I try to install is rejected or my Laptop will not recognise the DVDRW drive. New laptop, dual core processor, 1Gb ram.

I would like to just Format my hard drive and re-install Windows XP Pro, but Vist will not let me do this?

Can anyone advise, please?
