Sony laptop boot problem and vista
Posted on 2007-11-28
I got a sony laptop last week (VGN-NR110E)
the preinstalled OS was vista home, but i decided to upgrade vista ultimate.
after i installed vista ultimate, i saw that the wireless adapter (Atheros AR5006X) is not working.
i installed the driver, uninstall and re install again didn't work,
and then i searched the sony website and figured out that my wireless adapter is not supported by vista ultimate. the technical person from sony told me that i shouldn't install any other OS.
because the laptop was shipped with preinstalled vista home, and he said i have to keep it.
but i already installed the vista ultimate, and didn't create any vista home recovery.
what i want to do is to reinstall the vista home, or go back to the factory settings. The sales person told me that i have to purchase a recovery cd from Sony and recover with that to go back the original settings?
Is there any other way to recover my os?
if i install vista home, do you think it works good?
(i tried to boot with different os ; xp home, xp pro, linux : none of them worked.)
vista ultimate works good, but wireless driver is not working
when i got the laptop with preinstalled vista home, everything was working, so this is the only reason i want to go back to the home edition.
what i understand from my search and technical support person, this laptop is only designed for vista home.So if i try to install any other OS, this problem appears.
any comment or help would be great. Thank you.
