Sony VAIO

Hi

I just bought Sony Vaio notebook, and it came with windows vista, and
instead of giving me a copy of an OS, and it is on a seprate
partition.

I am wondering is it possible if I can striping clean this image, and
burn it on a DVD? Because I would like to dual boot with Windows XP.

Thanks in advance.

Some computer manufacturers, such as HP, also install a
recovery partition but offer the user the ability to make a backup
of the recovery files. You'll need to contact Sony support and ask
them this question and how to do it. Every PC manufacturer seems
to have a different procedure.

Keep in mind that if you do dual-boot and have a future need
to reinstall Vista, the factory recovery procedure will wipe-out
the dual-boot you created and reconfigure your hard drive exactly as
the day it left the factory.

You can put it on 2 DVD's but this is like a recovery disk you can use if
for some reason the partition won't work. But like the partition it will
wipe out everything. I don't know why they don't just include a Visda DVD so
you can reinstall it without effecting everything else you have on the PC.
I would just leave the partition alone those are just setup files. You can
still intall XP and make it the default operating system.

btw, I noticed that they don't even provide a booklet to get started. Sure,
I know what to do and that the manual is in Vaio Help but some newbie or
someone who just bought a PC for the first time might be confused.
