It may be an option when you press F8, it is on other laptop manufacturers.
If not you will need to buy a new copy of windows, or download a copy from a P2P or torrent site

Look like a Vista machine? That's the only version of Realtek drivers posted. Note there is an XP driver package as well, but does indicate what it holds.

All the VAIO Computers will be shipped with the Recovery partition in the Hard Drive. If the Hard Drive is not completely formatted, you can access the Recovery partition by pressing the F10 key for 5 to 10 seconds when the VAIO logo appears.

If you're able to access the Recovery partition, then select Restore C Drive option to restore the Computer back to the factory settings.
Let me inform you how to check the if Recovery partition is available.

Press windows+R key and type diskmgmt.msc and check if you're able to view EISA partition. If EISA partition is there, then the Recovery partition is available and you can access by pressing the F10 key at start-up.
If the EISA partition is not there, then the partition is deleted, then you can purchase the Recovery Discs for your Computer which may cost $15 to $35.

The recovery G: drive on your computer is an OEM partition. You don't have to do anything on it because it is helpfull. The back up for your OS is on that drive and also the OKR files or the recovery files.

If you delete that drive it void the OKR.

Say's it needs to initialize and comes up with eisa.


The EISA partition is a partition that a computer manufacturer places on the disc to assist in recovery of that maker's files. It is not necessary to have this partition if you do not intend to perfrom a factory recovery. I will include a guide below to assist you in a deletion of that partition. To initialize a disc, it can be done ways, boot the computer and it will advise you the disc has not been initialized and will initiate a wizard to assist. I attach the hard drive to another computer using an EIDE/SATA to USB adapter, it will be recognized as an external drive but will not give it a drive letter because it is not initialized. You have to go to the control panel > administrator tools > computer management > disc management. Look in the right lower pane and it will show the drive with a grayed out box to the left, it may label the drive as drive 03 or 04 etc. Right click on the drive number and choose initiate. The computer will initiate the drive and give it a letter. It will also ask you if you want to initiate the drive as a bootable drive, choose yes. Below is the guide to delete that EISA partition so you can use the drive in any laptop you see fit.

EISA Partition Delete

1. Open a command prompt as administrator.
2. Run Diskpart application by typing Diskpart in the command prompt.
3. In the “Diskpart” prompt, enter rescan command and press Enter key to re-scan all partitions, volumes and drives available.
4. Then type in list disk and press Enter key to show all hard disk drive available.
5. Select the disk that contains the partition you want to remove. Normally, with just 1 hard disk, it will be disk 0. So the command will be:
select disk 0
Finish by Enter key.
6. Type list partition and press Enter key to show all available and created partition in the disk selected.
7. Select the partition that wanted to be deleted by using the following command, followed by Enter key:
select partition x
where x is the number of the EISA based recovery partition to be removed and unlocked its space. Be careful with the number of this partition, as wrong number may get data wipes off.
8. Finally, type in delete partition override and press Enter key.
Once the partition has been deleted, exit from Diskpart, and now users can use the much familiar and much easier Disk Management tool in Windows (diskmgmt.msc) to manipulate the freed unallocated partition. Users can create a new volume (partition) with this space, or simply merge it to existing partition by extending the size of the existing partition.

I want to downgrade my desktop acer aspire x1800 vista to xp pro everytime i run set-up it always showing me an error could not proceed,.


Most like ly the hard drive has a Vista recovery partition. That partition has got to be deleted. You'll need to open a command prompt and follow the guide very carefully or irreperable damage could occur.

Here’s the trick to delete and remove the EISA recovery or diagnostic partition in Vista. Before proceeding with the deletion action, make sure that at least a set of Recovery Disc Media has been created. Else, you won’t be able to restore your computer to working and factory default condition when any problem on PC requires reinstallation.
  1. Open a command prompt as administrator.
  2. Run Diskpart application by typing Diskpart in the command prompt.
  3. In the “Diskpart” prompt, enter rescan command and press Enter key to re-scan all partitions, volumes and drives available.
  4. Then type in list disk and press Enter key to show all hard disk drive available.
  5. Select the disk that contains the partition you want to remove. Normally, with just 1 hard disk, it will be disk 0. So the command will be:
select disk 0
Finish by Enter key.
  1. Type list partition and press Enter key to show all available and created partition in the disk selected.
  2. Select the partition that wanted to be deleted by using the following command, followed by Enter key:
select partition x
where x is the number of the EISA based recovery partition to be removed and unlocked its space. Be careful with the number of this partition, as wrong number may get data wipes off.
  1. Finally, type in delete partition override and press Enter key.
Once the partition has been deleted, exit from Diskpart, and now users can use the much familiar and much easier Disk Management tool in Windows (diskmgmt.msc) to manipulate the freed unallocated partition. Users can create a new volume (partition) with this space, or simply merge it to existing partition by extending the size of the existing partition.

Acer boots from xp


take it back to store. basically a hidden, but unremovable partition is causing the xp bootup. It happened to me aswell. They will probably give you a replacement as it is an unfixable problem. Even with new hard drive didnt fix it. Sorry about that.

How to Create EISA Partition...in Vista Or XP......


You can't. The partition was created by SONY to hold recovery files because so many people lose their installation disks. So SONY created the partition, loaded the special software on it and put options in the menu to use it.
