    I just bought a comp that had vista already on it and im trying to put xp back on. When putting the xp disk in it wont see both partitions to format. Only sees one.

    Is there any program I can get that will let me format both partitions back into one?

    Most hard drive manufactures have a zero fill utility you can download off their site. It may be in the diagnostics or tools downloads.

    They would also have formatting and partitioning software.

    I agree... Even though my machine came with XP, I got a free upgrade to Vista and it works great.

    It's odd how I keep seeing a lot of threads about people having problems going from Vista to XP.

    It is my personal experience that Vista will run much slower than XP on an identical machine. My machine came with XP with the free upgrade. So I figured I'd try it. I gave it 2 weeks and was back to XP. XP is simply faster.

    That is probably the worst analogy I've ever heard.
