  1. Why not download them directly from Sony? Just select Downloads, choose Windows XP for your operating system, then choose OS Upgrade/Downgrade.

  4. OK, you have all the drivers, now do this:

    Copy the drivers to a USB drive or burn them to a CD.
    Install XP.
    Install the chipset and network drivers so you can access the Internet.
    Install Service Pack 3.
    Install the rest of the drivers.
    Install the latest video driver directly from ATI/AMD.
    Install all other Windows updates.
    Load your special software.
    BACK UP THE SYSTEM.
  5. thank you u r valuable information
  6. There are no XP drivers from Sony for this laptop, the system probably will not work at all with XP or will be missing a lot of hardware functions.

    Run XP in a virtual environment. If you want to try XP on that system anyway, make sure you can restore the PC back to Windows 7 if/when that fails.

    i install the vmware workstation i install the xp in drive F
    The installation went fine until I got to the part where it was trying to
    actually install XP.

    It gave me a message that said

    "The file "asms" on WinXP Home Edition Service Pack 2 CD is needed"

    and below it was the directory leading to

    GLOBALROOT\DEVICE\CDROMO\1386


    Now, I dont know where the hell the asms file is or what directory I should have to
    type in. And I also dont ever remember coming across this problem before when I tried
    to reinstall windows using this CD.once again same message coming.
  8. Please go back to "i install the vmware workstation" part.

    Did you decide to install XP in a virtual machine instead of directly on the laptop?
    Are you using a Sony supplied XP disc, or a retail XP disc?
