When a restore cd is not provided, I usually find they offer to make such. Check the manuals on how.
-> Run BELARC ADVISOR and print it out so you have the current serial numbers.
BEWARE that such customizing (partitions and such) is not advised on the Sony unless you hunt down all the needed drivers and have a full retail package of XP. Still it's usually a few day process for most.
I have a 3 year old Sony Vaio, running Windows XP SP2, and I would like to erase and repartition my hard disk, and reinstall windows. However, this computer came with Windows XP already installed, and Sony did not include a Windows XP disk or a restore disk with the computer. I do have what I think is the serial number for Windows XP
(from My Computer > Properties). Is there any way to do this?
Thank you in advance for any help.
