I suggest completely formatting and installing XP. Windows is notoriously bad at upgrading and downgrading from an installer ran in windows.
Step by step instructions on installing windows XP: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/316941
If your laptop came with Vista business or Vista ultimate, you can downgrade to XP professional for free. You can call Microsoft customer service and try to request an XP install CD. When you register it, select "activate by phone" option and give the customer service rep your vista product key.

Sorry,your notebook only support Windows Vista,So sony doesn't have driver for windows XP. 
Try Windows 7,it's lot better then Windows Vista. All the drivers for Windows Vista will work with Windows 7.

Install xp on sony series nr


The BIOS doesn't care nor detect the installed OS and should only be upgraded if you are having BIOS issues.

The old adage "If it works don't try to fix it" certainly applies here.

XP Drivers for Sony Vaio VGN-fw230j/b


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:

http://maxeasyguide.blogspot.com/2008/04/preparations-for-winxp-installation-cd.html

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.
