so... recovery disks needed

the hard drive on my 5 month old Vaio went out, and now that I have a new (and due to *****ing because of retardation on Best Buy's part... upgraded for free from 200 GB to 250 GB)... I need the disks to get everything going again. Sony no longer includes these with computers. So, I get to order them (~$40 last time I checked) on Monday. Anyone have any other suggestions?

Re: so... recovery disks needed

I should point out I bought a student copy of Windows XP (before the hard drive crash)... because I wanted to switch from Vista to XP. Also, when I try to format with XP, I get this error message saying it can't find a hard disk installed on the laptop, but when you go through BIOS... a 250 GB hard drive is surely there. Should I just try it with Vista? (I can get a copy for $7 tomorrow from the school bookstore....) (though I HATE Vista
