Greetings,

Welcome to the forum.

I am not a HP employee.

 

Why?

 

You have to jump through hoops to install Windows 7 on your PC.

The computer will not run XP without major tweaks and there are just not going to be compatible drivers for chipset and video. What you can do is install a virtual Windows XP in a virtual machine like Virtualbox. Very easy to do and will perform very well. 

 

This person says he got Windows XP working on similar hardware but there are a lot of little workarounds you may not be able to do on your prorietary HP desktop
