Installing older version of WIN XP over newer version

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Douglas C. Neidermeyer, Sep 6, 2006.

  1. My Dell computer came with WIN XP Home and a reinstall CD. Later I upgraded
    to Pro.

    Now I want to go back and reinstall XP Home from the Dell system reinstall
    CD. But I get an error message saying I can't do that because the XP version
    on my computer is newer than the one on the CD.

    How can I over ride that?
