I want to change/upgrade my hard drive in my VAIO Laptop.

Now will I still be able to use the recovry disc that came with the laptop initially?

I upgraded a Compaq Presario's(it had Recovery cd's)hdd to a larger size,and the recovery cd's ceased working as before.They used to create a 2Gb hidden partition,that was accessed by the Compaq software,this stopped appearing,but the rest of the recovery cd's software still loaded ok.

So how do I install Windows (2000) back on the machine?

with sony you most likely just use the recovery cd,s i take it theres 3 or 4 of them? if so just put new drive in jumper set as master put first recovery cd in and follow on screen instructions.
