The difference would be you use XP in stead of 7.
And maybe that it won't completely work, because you can't find all necessary drivers for XP, but that only can be told later.

They lost a month trying to install XP. Well XP did install but no support for audio, video cards and well, it was running at 800x600 but unless you wanted to write a paper and copy it off on USB (no networking) it wasn't very useful.

After a month they caved and asked for help. Even I was not happy as I read

While I got it done, who in their right mind would do this? (Now to get my mind right again.)
