what kind of pc did you have before? I know with my HP (haha!) the disk that came with it could only be installed on an hp machine. that might be causing errors..you might have to go buy a copy of xp.

I would say that you still might have to go buy a copy of xp, like I said before, usualy those cd's only work on that particular computer, I would think that sony is no different
