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.

Sony :: Windows 7 Upgrade Disc

Nov 20, 2009

I have just received my upgrade discs for both my new Z620D laptops, followed the rather vague instuctions to the letter, clicked Upgrade. All went well until it asked for the licence key. Does the W7 upgrade licence key come with the discs or in an email? The original vista key does not work.

Is there a way to create a Windows Vista Installation disc from either the Hidden Partition or Recovery discs? I am not talking about a "Factory Restore"...

Dell :: How Can I Install Windows On A New HDD...Without A Disc

Nov 19, 2007

I got a new 120GB seagate Momentus 7200rpm HDD in the mail today. I wasn't expecting it yet (I actually wasn't expecting it to ship until today) so I wasn't ready for it.

I need to know how I can copy windows from my current 60GB HDD to my new 120GB...but I don't have a Windows Xp CD. I know there is some way to make an "image" of my current HDD? But when I research that it gets a little confusing because they are always how to's for backing up your files rater than making a CD that you can actually install on a blank HDD.

How many CD's will it take If I un-install all my programs first and basically just copy Windows itself?

I'm not interested in going out and buying an external caddy and copying directly to the new HDD externally UNLESS that is the only way to do it. I need a way that it can be done like...2day! cause i'm anxious!

Dell :: 1545 Windows Vista Disc?

May 21, 2010

Im in quite the pickle..if anyone would be awesome enough to do this.. I'd be hella grateful lol.


So, I purchased a used Dell 1545 off of eBay that had everything with it except the Operating System. I figured - no problem.

I've ordered recovery disks with absolutely NO problem for other manufacturers. What a mistake that was.

I got in contact with Dell. They insisted that they need to know the original owners name in order for everything to be transferred so I can get the disks. Only one problem - I can't .....

Sony :: Windows XP On My VAIO.

Aug 29, 2009

I'm kinda savvy when it comes to this stuff, but I have hit a wall. I have a Sony VAIO that I would like to run Windows Vista and Windows XP on.

I shrank the main partition on my hard drive and created a new partition of unformatted space to install XP on.

But when I put in the XP CD in and reboot, it says that there are no hard drives on my system

Sony :: Vaio SR 290- With Windows 7

Oct 11, 2009

my Vaio SR 290 CTO. I have been using Windows 7 Pro on my SR 290 for a month with no issue except I tried to do vedio chat with my friend today.

Sony :: Windows 7 On A Vaio FZ

Feb 21, 2009

Has anyone tried to install Windows 7 beta on a vaio FZ? I did install win 7 on my Vaio FZ (with the specifications below) before a week and everything seems to work ok with the drivers for Vista, except for the following problem:

I formatted the hard drive, installed the software, obtained a key from microsoft and activated my version. I did install all the drivers as I did several times before on Vista. Sony notebook utility worked and I got functionality of all the keys except Fn+mute (F2), also the volume control at the top right of the keyboard doesn't work. I believe these two problems are related and could be caused by the same driver. AV mode, S key and other controls all work fine. I tried changing drivers/software: "sony utility dll", "sony shared library" and the AV mode software but nothing happened. Anyone could have an idea on which driver that specifically needed update?

Sony :: Windows 7 Vs. VAIO SZ7

Oct 24, 2009

clean installed Win7 Professional 32bit and it works ok.

Except for:

1. "Unknown device" and "Storage Mass Controller" as troubles in the Device Manager (can't really understand which devices these are to install the drivers for them)

2. Sony Power Management doesn't work at all as well as Fn and all VAIO-specific switches and buttons.

3. Some of the drivers were installed by Win7 and it's really difficult to understand which ones I should change for Sony-originals.

Sony :: Vaio FW Windows 7

Nov 21, 2009

When I upgraded to Windows 7 using the upgrade disks I made the mistake of clicking upgrade instead of custom.

I'm wondering if I can somehow reinstall Windows 7 so I can do a clean install. I don't have an install disc of Vista because it was pre-installed. So, is there a way I can do this or am I condemned to stay with the upgrade version?

Sony :: Windows 7 On A Vaio FW

Sep 24, 2009

if it is a good idea to install windows 7 rc on my new vaio fw. I read some threads about it, but they are outdated and they required a lot of annoying installations and stuff. I don't mind installing a couple of drivers, as long as everything is functional after that. (which i heard it is not)

I no the real release is only days away, but I am not sure when I am going to receive the upgrade, probably not in the next month.

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.

Dell :: Windows 7 Upgrade Disc Can Do Clean Install.

Nov 17, 2009

I just received Windows 7 Upgrade Disc from Dell, and it says "Windows Vista Business to Windows 7 Professional Upgrade" on the disc and COA also says "Win Vista Bus to Win 7 Pro UPG Fullfill."

I was curious if it is really impossible to do a clean install with upgrade disc as regular upgrade disc is. (At least I was told that it is impossible), but I did not want to upgrade my notebook to Windows 7 yet.

So, I gave it a try on VMWare. It installed just like regular Windows 7 disc in a empty HDD. It even took COA that came with the upgrade disc.
I did not try activating because it probably will fail if it uses SLIC to activate, or in worst case, it will get activated on my VM, and I will be unable to active it when I actually want to upgrade my notebook's OS
