...without them, it won't work correctly and although drivers are usually available, with SONY, some have been hard to find.
Ideally, XP should be installed first on the drive, then Vista can be installed. If you're looking to dual-boot XP after Vista is already installed, I recommend getting a second hard drive, unplug the first, then install XP on the second drive.. There have been other threads attempting to do what you suggest. Most have had poor luck doing so.
Hope this helps.

I have bought a VAIO VGN-G118GN/B with Business Vista Windows and intel centrino. I have had considerable trouble with loading my application software into this laptop.
I partition the hard disk of the VAIO laptop, this has been done very easily with Windows Vista: I have the drive C @ 60 Gb and the other new drive G @ 40 Gb.
When I try to load the windows XP from a CD or its copy into the G drive, the installation option is not highlighted! So I can not load XP!
Please advise me what to do to be able to load windows XP into my VAIO laptop?
I heard that there will be problems with Drivers because Sony does not provide drivers for windows XP in its present laptop with windows Vista. Is this true?? I would think that windows XP once loaded would have all the drivers needed?
Many thanks in anticipation for your prompt reply.
