Question about Sony VGN-CR220E/L Notebook
With hundreds of operating system installs under my belt, I have yet to encounter a modern computer (under ten years old) that I couldn't install XP with sp2 onto. Is there any reason why you are concerned? As long as you have enough hard drive space and enough ram you should be fine. What you must remember is that you need to install the Sony drivers for your computer after the install of XP. Sony has a great support site, and if you do not have them on disk, they are easy to download from their site. They even have a tool that will scan your computer and provide you with a list of the drivers you need for your particular model. Just go to this page (copy the link into your browser's address bar if this link isn't active): http://esupport.sony.com/perl/select-system.pl?DIRECTOR=DRIVER&SR=nav:service_support:electronics:drivers_software:esup&ref=http%3A//www.sony.com/index.php
Just enter the model number and get yoru drivers. I would do this before you do your fresh install of XP. Of course, you will need to save the drivers on something other than your hard drive. It sounds like an obvious thing to do, but I just want to be thorough. OK then. Take care.
