Sony :: Vista 64-bit To 32-bit Downgrade

Jul 12, 2009

what Sony's policy (Sony USA) is on providing a 32-bit version of Vista with the laptops that now only include the 64-bit version (such as the Sony VAIO Z7xx series)?

From the information I have come across, apparently it is at your laptop manufacturer's discretion to provide you with a 32-bit OEM copy (which would also need a different product key than the one provided with the laptop for the 64-bit version, since it is OEM and not retail) or leave you to purchase your own copy. Does anyone have experience with Sony in this regard?

if the Windows 7 upgrade kit will also be 64-bit only?

Sony :: 'Downgrade' From Vista To XP

May 20, 2009

trying to "Downgrade" my Laptop from Vista to XP, I have a legal copy of XP and when I boot from disk it wont install it just says that it cannot find a HD to install to. I downloaded a copy of XP to see if my disc was just broken or something and it let me format my HD and install XP, the only problem i have with that is i wont be able to perform updates and i only have a small screen in the middle of my display (i assume this is because some drivers are missing) also i cant connect to the internet because there are drivers missing. I have been on the sony website and downloaded some but they dont work, i think its because there designed for Vista.

So my question is this, does anyone know how I can get my LEGAL copy of XP to install and also does anyone know where I can get compatible drivers for it? My Laptop is VGN-NR38E/S.

Sony :: VGN TZ330E XP Downgrade

May 28, 2010

I have spent many hours trying to downgrade my TZ330E from Vista to XP. I need to load a couple of programs that will not work under Vista. I have all the XP files from Sony esupport ready to go and a valid XP installation cd. However, when the XP installer finally runs I get an abort message "A problem has been detected and Windows..." with the error message:
STOP: 7B-F78DA63C-C0000034-0-0. The disk is partitioned: C=20G, D=74G. The machine works fine under Vista.

I assume it is something to do with the disk, but I have tried downloading a variety of Sony drivers for Raid and SATA disks and using the F6 and S options but to no avail. Sony says the TZ330E disk drive is "ultra ATA" which I thought the XP installer should know about.

Sony :: Does The Z11 WN Come With An Xp Downgrade Disk

Jan 4, 2009

I am hoping to avoid Vista all together and jump straight from XP to 9. I am sure I have read in some reviews that the Z comes with a downgrade disk but I now can't find mention of it! does it?

Also if you do downgrade do all the features like speed/stamina mode etc... work as they do under Vista?

Sony :: Z540Window XP Pro Downgrade

Feb 19, 2009

My z540 seem to have an great deal of unwillingness to install window xp pro.

1. Blue screened right after it boot into the installation disk

2. Blue screened right before where you would go partition the drive

3. Black screen right after restart from copying files to hardrive - does not want to boot

What is going on? is my z540 curses? Or is there others?

I had the laptop warranty once already for other reason (keyboard and screen problem) cough. and they also ran a diagnostic check on hardware and it passed everything.

I am so tired of vista kept bugging out on me - half the time , my fn keys and stamina/speed switch does not even work after i used for a couple of days -.- and other reasons

Sony :: SZ71 XP Downgrade

Mar 3, 2009

I needed to downgrade one of my SZ's to XP, and all went fine until the network driver install - but the automated driver install for the rest of the components seems not to have 'taken'. I followed the instructions to the letter and every time I boot Windows it asks me for the drivers fo the video, fingerprint reader, sound, etc etc.

What did I do wrong, and how do I get around it? It was for a piece of software which is XP only that I'm required to run, but if I can't solve this easily I'm just going to say to the guy I only run Vista and let him worry about it.

Sony :: FW31M Successful Xp Downgrade

Jun 28, 2009

(edit1 updated findings)

- Vista's Ramblings
I recently got a brand new VGN-FW31M laptop. When the power button was pressed for the first time, the Vista tyrrany started to uncompress itself... After waiting patiently for 15-20 minutes, the entire process was completed. This notebook has some muscle in it so vista should be no problem for it. The experience was a bitter-sweet disappointment. I am a power user and I don't like junk applications and sloppy OSes. The preconfigured installation was infested with sony's garbage plus tons of other trial and advertising stuff. Disgusted with all this mayhem, I rebooted the system to test it's responce. It took 30+ SECONDS for the system to shut down and even more to boot windows! I couldn't believe this... Even my oldest PIII rig could do better on XP. After several restarts and OS optimizations, the systems response times stayed more or less the same. Jerky mouse movement when using multitasking, delays and constant hd activity.The performance sucked for my standards. Imagine how it would be in 6 months with full application grinding!
XP downgrade was the only thought on my mind and after several days of pondering, experimenting and forum reading.

- Testing the XPrience:
I managed to switch to xp sp3 with 99% of the features (buttons, devices) working. The driver for Ati HD3470 that I am currently testing is a 9.1 modified desktop catalyst. The mod was done with Mobility Modder.NET 1.2. Fallout 3 works fluidly on medium graphics with good stability. I am currently testing high graphic settings with messy and crowded environment. Will post benchmarks later.................

Sony :: Vgn S360 Recovery Disc

May 15, 2009

locating a recovery disc for my s360, as a few months ago the HDD stopped working (cant recover from the partition) and I cant seem to locate the recovery disc I made.

I tried installing windows 7 and looking for device drivers for the video & audio cards but was unable to find them.

Anyway, if anyone is aware of somewhere vista drivers or the XP recovery .iso would be downloadable that would be groovy.

Sony :: VAIO FW Series Recovery Disc

Feb 10, 2009

I just ordered the Sony Vaio FW series. The agent said the notebook don't come with any Windows Vista Home Premium x64 DVD's as back up and i need to burn the recovery disc from the OS once i receive the laptop.

1. Is this the standard practice of shipment.

2. If i am to create recovery disc from the laptop, and then at a later time format and do an install from the recovery back up disk's, does the recovery install the old factory shipped drivers & software by default. If so is there a way to get rid of this.

3. What do i do if i want to do a clean install of the OS with the new drivers from net.
