It Works: Sony VAIO P + Windows XP


Do you want to install Windows XP on your Sony VAIO P (don’t call it a netbook!)? Do you even have a Sony VAIO P yet? If you answered yes to both questions, read on.

There’s a thread over on the Pocketables forum detailing how to install Windows XP on the tiny (not a netbook!) notebook. Getting the OS up and running seems to be relatively straightforward until you get to the 3G and GPS drivers. Luckily, forum user tnkgrl has figured out how to strong-arm the machine into using the Vista drivers in XP.

As always, be sure to back up and proceed at your own risk.
