Default Vista

I'm going to install Vista on my computer, but if I don't like it because my system runs too slow can i switch back to XP, by using vaio recovery wizard to change my computer to original factory condition? Or can i make a recovery CD, If I can what program should I use? thanks

You might be able to use the Recover CD but I have a feeling that it wont work. I think that recovery CD's are for if you corrupt your installation and need to restore to factory settings. If you completely wiped your harddrive then you might not be able to. The way I suggest is to buy a new XP CD (if you can find one) and install fresh. If the computer came with XP then you should be able to find drivers for everything.
