I too, find it a questionable practice for a major computer manufacturer not to have the recovery disks. Have you thought of searching for the model name, to see if they can at least be ordered? I would even go to their website and look in the FAQs. Im sure that if others have called Sony about it, that at least the reason would be there-Im sorry, but the answer they gave you, that it is the norm now, just doesnt cut it. Just for grins, you might even want to Google for the product key on WIN XP. You should at least have a sticker on the case that has it.
We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.
