Hello Satish,


You will not be able to install Windows XP using Windows 7 product key. If you have the Windows XP product key and the Windows XP installation disc, only then you will be able to install Windows XP.


I would suggest you to Optimize Windows 7 to increase the performance of the computer.

Refer to the link “Optimize Windows 7 for better performance” to know how to Optimize Windows 7.


I hope this helps you to increase the performance of Windows 7.


If the issue persists or you have any other issues with Windows in future, please do post it in Microsoft Community. We would be happy to help you.
