Hidden Partition access on Sony Vaio

By Grumpyroger ·
I have a Sony Vaio vgn-sz260p, and XP recently crashed I re-installed XP pro on it, and I know that there is a hidden partition on the ndrive (I did not re-format) it shows using a partition program. It is EISA, how do I access this drive to re-install the OEM drivers and stuff that originally came with it?
Sony does not make the DVD for this unit, and only offers driver downloads for it. Any Ideas?

I'm not sure

how the recovery works on a Sony Vaio, but you should be able to access the hidden partition through a function key. For all I know it may have asked you when you first started it up, if you wanted to create a recovery CD/DVD. Anyway you should be able to download your drivers from here.

The drivers are 'part of' the recovery partition ...

So, if you re-installed from a DISC, there is little point in seeking out the drivers from the hidden partition.

They install as a part of the batch-file that re-installs your new OS.

Probably better to procure the necessary drivers from the manufacturers website.
