    I did. Until it crashed for good after the fourth boot up.

    Called MS. They told me to reinstall. I never did. This was over a year ago ...

    I installed Windows 7 on my previous Mac Mini, but what I have read too many problems with 8, so I never ran it..

    I'm sticking with Windows 7.
    I tried 8 and 8.1 and just didn't like them.

    As long as you've got a copy of the Snow Leopard disc you should be good to go.
    Unless you're running programs that require it, I don't know why you'd choose Windows XP over Windows 7 but if it floats your boat then go for it.
