    Anyone has the recovery partition files for the Sony VPC-W11S1E netbook?!
    If not, anyone has Windows XP Home edition for me to make a fresh install?

    Thanks all

    Why go for Home? Try the ready made Sony Windows XP Pro SP3 OEM from here -> http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/17843-Windows-XP-PRO-SP3-SP2-OEM-CDs-32-bit-64-bit

    Or PM me, if u need the original MSDN version of Windows XP Home Edition with Service Pack 3 Retail (x86) [en_windows_xp_home_with_service_pack_3_x86_cd_x14-92413.iso], I will give u a torrent....

    But the serial is only for Home edition. That's why I want to get a Home Edition for it.
    If someone has the original recovery partition that would be the best as well, but I guess it would be hardest thing to find.

    The Pro edition I mentioned before has the OEM key preinstalled, so u dont need to use any other key.....

    The key that you have for XP home will be OEM COA you would need to call MS to activate if you are lucky. If i were you i would just download the Sony Windows XP Pro SP3 OEM SLP cd and install it no need to input key and it will preactivate.
