Fresh Windows Install.

I currently have Vista Home Premium on my machine and have had a few hiccups that made me decide to reinstall XP. First off this is not a debate for or against Vista trolls on either side stay out. The machine has a single disk and a load of files on it. I could take the time to move all the stuff I want to save over to another machine but it would take a good deal of time, then format the disk and install XP.

tl:dr Is there a way to install XP and remove Vista without nuking the disk?

    Probably not. And even if there is, you probably don't want to do it anyway. Performing Windows upgrades can be perilous enough; going from a new operating system to an older one sounds like something of a crapshoot. Be safe and take the time to back up/start from scratch. You'll be happier with the system performance in the long run anyway, at the very least.
