So you want to put the bigger hard drive from your netbook into your sony tz?

You could just swap them(if they are both in fact 1.8" drives), boot off your operating system disk that came with your sony tz, reformat and re-install.

Nope, a fresh reformatted hard drive doesnt care what operating system you install on it.
