If you bought a business version of Vista you have downgrade rights to
XP Pro by using an existing XP Pro license key and media that you own.

If you bought a home version you have no downgrade rights (You will need
to purchase a retail version of XP) and you may also have difficulty
finding XP drivers for the hardware.

Return the unit as unfit for purpose and buy the right device & OS for
your use.
