Default cannot downgrade (upgrade) from windows 7 starter to windows xp - 01-19-2010, 01:35 PM

hi guys,

i got a new 10v here with windows 7 starter. after finding out about all the limitations with starter i decided to use my old XP disc and keycode to get this computer working how it should be. but my issue is that it will not install. i have tried both the USB method and even using the CD and it will not install. when i use the CD i get a screen with a blinking cursor and thats it. when i use the USB method the system says "remove all devices and press any key to continue" once i do that it boots to windows normally. either that or it ignores the USB completely. any ideas on how to get this working properly?
