So I decided I wanted XP Pro on my computer, and stupidly, instead of checking hardware compatibility first I removed the Vista Partition and loaded XP Pro onto my computer. Now I have numerous problems and my systems runs pathetically due to hardware working (most probably not working properly) but not at an optimal level ever since re-formatting to XP Pro. Obviously I have a damn HP Compaq, resulting in no Vista CD with my computer and due to removing the Vista Partition I've lost my System Recovery from boot-up so I can only re-format my computer to XP Pro. I've read around, and supposedly, instead of losing more than $50 to get my system working alright I can use the NeoSmart Vista Recovery ISO download, which I've gotten and tried using (yes, I know that I can't use it to install Vista, I'm hoping to get back my system recovery back via the ISO to install it that way). If this is correct then what do I need to do to sort it out or does the Vista Recovery ISO only work on a system with a current Vista OS already on the system?
