Re: downgrading

It can be easily done. Here is the location of all of the drivers you will need.

 

You will have to purchase a Windows XP installation CD and activation license key.

 

Here is a link to information on how to create a Windows XP USB installation thumbdrive.

 

You will need to use an external DVD\CD drive with your mini or create the install thumbdrive on another PC with a DVD drive.
