Switching from Vista to XP Pro: Have a wide-screen Vaio laptop that came from the factory with Vista and Sony does not support XP on this box. I allocated next week the time to pull the drive, drop in two 500gb new SATA drives, and do a complete install of XP Pro. I am told that I will need a special boot disk to accomplish this. I see a guy on eBay is selling a cd that purports to enable you to do this. What is actually needed? The Sony guy said 2 drives in this laptop is not suggested but there IS an empty bay here so I want to max storage. Also, the drivers available specifically for this box are for Vista, not XP but he did give me the model of the last Vaio like mine that shipped with XP and said I could TRY those drivers. I really do not care if everthing like webcam, etc., work; I just need to dump Vista. I bought a new copy of XP Pro, SP2 to do this.
Suggestions on what I will need to do this are sincerely appreciated; I just want to have all ready b4 I begin. Thanks!!
