    I purchased a laptop last year in March and it came with Windows 10. I purchased a new Windows XP disc online recently and I cant figure out how to install it. I tried going through the BIOS and it didn't work. The installation disc wont allow me to install it because the option will not highlight. Does anyone have any insight on how to install XP on my computer. If I need to get rid of Windows 10, that's fine, whatever it takes. Thank you in advance.

    First, you probably have a sata drive on your new pc and xp will not install without sata controllers on a sata drive

    second, you will probably not be able to find drivers for xp on a newer pc, you should check with the manufacturer first to see if drivers are available.

    Where would I find the controllers? And also I was told by hp that the drivers are in the new windows xp disc I purchased. I'm really in the dark and am unsure of what to do here.
