Downgrading Vista home to XP pro SP2

Hi, I just  got this Thinkcenter A61 9120-CTO preloaded with Vista Home Basic. I've search around but found several threads on how to do it but found none that is specifically to my machine. I have made myself the recovery disk. All i need now is to find drivers for this model to install Windows XP pro SP2. Anyone knows where i can find them? Thanks in advance.

I believe there should be more than one disc.  You might want to check on that. 

 

The downloads and drivers for Windows XP can be found here.

Re: Downgrading Vista home to XP pro SP2

Hi, btw,

 

I got a ThinkCenter A61 9144-A99, and I would like to downgrade to Windows 2000.

 

Is there any link to drivers for Windows 2000?

 

Thanks.
