I'm not sure what you mean by problem. You can certainly dual boot XP and
Vista. Sorry I don't know if you can use an English language upgrade
version of Vista to upgrade a Korean language version of XP. You might
want to ask in a Vista newsgroup such as
microsoft.public.windows.vista.general.

Vista Ultimate does have downloadable language packs to change certain
aspects of the interface to use that language. You might be able to use a
Vista Ultimate upgrade edition in Korean and then get the English language
pack. However, I don't know if there is an English language pack for a
Korean Vista.

You're best bet is to repost this question to the Vista newsgroup I listed
above. I'm sure someone there will have some info on these questions.


What your computer came with has no bearing on how it will run in Vista. Is
the computer Vista capable? Have you checked with the computer maker?
Laptops are proprietary for drivers, and drivers a big issue right now with
Vista since it is new. So you need to check with Sony to see if they have
Vista compatible drivers for this laptop.


Someone else will have to jump in on this question.
