I actually just completed this downgrade last night to my brothers LT3103u..... XP does seem to be much quicker.... I actually found a tool to install windows via USB Flash drive... its called "WinToFlash" and worked perfect . You are right with requiring a fresh install with Windows 7, if you do this could you please post it? I will do the same as I am too thinking about going that direction.
