Question about Sony VAIO VGN-FW230J/B Notebook
I Hate Windows Vista!!! Need desperately to reformat and install Windows XP, but can`t find the drivers... Help, anybody!?!?
It's probably not supported Sony.
You can try and downgrade but you might lose some functionality. I downgraded my Vista Gateway laptop to XP but had to spend a lot of time tracking down drivers that would work correctly.
You won't be able to just pop in an XP cd and install. You'll have to jump through a few hoops.
Here's the biggest hoop and guide here:
Since you have a newer laptop your hard drive uses sata drivers which the XP cd doesn't have built-in.
Let me know if you get stuck or have anymore questions.
