*Try at your own risk with backed up home.*
Primarily, to downgrade to hardy:
Boot to liveCD - Hardy
Fill in timezone data
/dev/sda1 ext3 (where my /home resides modify accordingly for yours)
Use as: ext3
Format Partition: UNCHECKED
Mount Point: /
Warning: The file system on /dev/sda1 assigned to / has not been
marked for formating. Directories containing system files (/ boot, /etc,
usr, /var, ..) that already exist under any defined mountpoint will be
deleted during the install.
Please ensure that you have backed up any critical data before installing.
Fill in 'Who are you?' Note: I kept the same name of the computer and
Ignored 'Migrate Documents and Settings' for data on my 2nd hard drive
Install completed & reboot.
