    Hey, did you already install Windows XP to the Sony NR110E? Because I'm having trouble installing it to the SATA hard drive, and currently I have no operating system, and I also erased the recovery partition.

    Try here:

    They are the original so it may not work properly with your FZ.

    Yea, apparently Windows XP does not support installation to SATA hard drives, and you have to load them from a floppy drive.

    You're going to have to use Vista, or if you're like me, and formatted the laptop, you can use Ubuntu 7.10, but you have to install the wireless card manually.

    Afterwards, you can use VirtualBox or Wine to install or run WindowsXP.

    Hey,

    I'm having the exact same problem with the vgn-nr110e trying to downgrade from vista to xp. So there is no floppy disk, but does any know if we can use a flash drive to load the SATA drivers? And where do we get that SATA driver, i went to the sony site and the only one close to it is motherboard driver. Does that inlcude the SATA?

    Nope, I tried using a USB flash drive, and it does not work. The drivers for the VAIO chipset is located here:
    http://downloadcenter.intel.com/filter_results.aspx?strTypes=all&ProductID=2800&OSFullName=Windows*+XP+Professional&lang=eng&strOSs=44&submit=Go%21

    It is number 8 on the list.
    However I have not yet tested it out if it works.
    Again, you must use a floppy.

    Sorry if its not much help...I'm currently using Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy, and its pretty nice. You could try it out if you wish. I highly recommend it.

    Also check out CloneZilla if you wish to backup your current hard disk.
