Can you downgrade from Windows 7 to XP on a Sony Vaio VPCEG1BFX/W? Could you link me to drivers if so?

You might find that it won't install because Windows XP won't have drivers for SATA hard drive interfaces, you will have to locate them!

It's not really a download, or a "Downgrade' as such, you would have to backup your data, and complete a clean install of windows... here is how..

Why are you getting rid of windows 7 anyway?


I am just curious how XP would perform on here. Plus I have been using XP for a really long time. I already have an XP disc, I am just wondering if the drivers exist for this Model: VPCEG1BFX

Thanks so much. If you find any drivers, please link me to them. Thanks

I understand that it would be hard to adopt a completely new environment, but 9/10 people would say that Windows 7 is better, I never knock it till I try it,

I would master the basics of Windows 7 first and then make a decision to keep it, or revert. Either way operating without drivers is a headache,
