If the VAIO has a "designed for Microsoft Vista" sticker, then it's very-likely that you won't be satisfied by running Windows XP --- you'll be missing the device-drivers for your specific hardware (network adapter, sound-card, video-card).

Stick with Vista, or upgrade to Windows 7.

Sony vaio VGN-SZ430N/B


I'd suggest ring back Sony support and tell them that your OS is Windows 7 - not Vista. Therefore, you need the upgraded VGA driver because the Vista driver is incompatible with Windows 7. Hope it all goes well. If my suggestion works for you, please do rate me. Thanks

Have vaio VGN-S460, window 7. Can't get internet


Windows 7 is still a beta and Sony probably doesn't make drivers yet for the network adapter on that computer. You might be able to install the windows vista or xp drivers and that may work. You might have to manually install these drivers, however.

How to Install windows XP in SONY VAIO Vista


Is it ok if your files get lost forever?  If it is then what you have to do is when it says if you want to partition a hard drive space, you delete the biggest parition (which wipes any and all vista and files of the computer.)  Then it will ask you which partition you want use.  Use the one you just deleted, whhich is the biggest one.  It will ask you to format it and stuff, just go with it.  Then you will have XP instead of Vista!  (Warning: I warned you above that this way will wipe of vista and any other files-documents-photos-everything off your comptuer)

Help fix my laptop


Nope, there is currently no support for that within Vista, try using the XP driver directly; and when installing it click on "Continue Anyway".

Good luck!
