Did you reformat the entire hard drive when you installed Vista? If you formatted the recovery partition you won't be able to go back without a Xp installation disc.

Windows xp backup discs for sony VGN-FE770G notebook


call sony and tell them to send you *their* disks. they have them, and may charge you a small fee for the cd's and shipping. HP had a similar problem, but cd-s through snail mail should fix the problem.
