However...at Sony tech support they tell me that installing a larger HDD will lead to problems of the following kind:
The only way to reinstall the OS in a new HDD is via the Recovery Diks which I have. Those disks contain data that are set for a HDD of a specific size (in my case 100 Gb Hdd) and if I try to use those Disks on a larger HDD will run into unpredictable problems (according to tech support).
One of the problems according to them will be the partitions that came from the factory.
I wonder if they tell me this to force me to buy only Sony products or it is true
Anyway, if you want to be safe, go to Sony's site and download all the drivers for your notebook. Then use bittorrent to download a copy of the OEM version of windows you need. Burn it to a cd/dvd and use the key on the bottom of your notebook to activate it.
Your notebook will come out faster than the recovery CDs could make it, and you skip the mess with the hard disk sizes.
This is also completely legal, so don't worry about that part.
