Hello Ghsoni,

If you want to install the Winxp on in your Sony Vaio then you have disable the sata option in the BIOS. When you start the laptop press the key F2 to enter the BIOS settings. In BIOS you will find the drive option. In drive option find the option sata native. When you find the sata native option then disable it and save it. Restart your pc and then you are able to install the Win XP. Please backup all your data before install the new operating system.

Hi

currently you are not able to install XP on the Vaio laptop as the system is presently in SATA mode go to the Bios and change the IDE recognition from native SATA to IDE and your XP installation should be going through

or 2nd option is to have a Disk prepared on XP with SP3 and this should work without the changes in the Bios as SP3 has the SATA drivers

hope this helps

Sony vaio VGN-cs15gn/b recovery cd


Hi,

The computer is shipped with Recovery Center. There are no system recovery discs included with the computer. The recovery data required to return the computer to the original, factory-installed condition is included on a special partition of the hard drive. You can use the same to create Recovery discs, please follow the steps mentioned below to create the recovery discs for your computer model.

How I can get recovery disc for my laptop Sony Vaio VGN-SR 26GL?


You probably need a recovery disk because you dont have the necessary drivers and the software that came pre-installed on your laptop. but instead of worrying about that, why not just get any operating system disk of your choice, install it, download the drivers for your laptop online and install them too, and interestingly you can also keep all the drivers you downloaded with the OS Disk incase of future necessity for your laptop repairs.
In case your decide to do this, the link to download the drivers for your laptop is :

Windows XP

You can run the Vista utility to check if you can run vista on that machine, but I don't think you'll be able to.

XP is your way to go!
