One of the issues with Sony Vaio systems is that there is a dearth of
driver files for unsupported configurations. If there were no original
option for Windows XP and the user did a self-installation of XP and
if there are no XP driver files on the Sony site, then they do not exist.
One may try to search for a "generic" but Sony systems also tend to be
highly proprietary. Good luck.

Just finished reinstalling XP on a Vaio for a friend. NEVER again.
After formatting with a generic XP disk(home,pro or media center) it
wouldn't accept the license pasted on the back. Luckily was able to get
it booted, and let Sony's website tell me exactly which Vaio disk to order.
Long story short, very proprietary. Let Sony's website autodetect exact
model, spend the 20 bucks for reinstall disk. Hopefully there will be
one for XP for it.
Good luck.

Your product key problems were nothing to do with Sony, it was because the
product key on the sticker was for an OEM version of Windows XP (likely home
or pro edition) and you were using retail CD's, except for Media Center,
which is OEM, but the key was likely not for Media Center. It may be
frustrating, but don't blame your lack of knowledge on Sony.
All laptops are proprietary, have been for yeas and years.

No Sir. These were OEM disks for builders multi licensing. As long as
you had a key should have been in bidness. This machine had been munged
before, and Lord only knows what the sticker on the case belonged to.
This was a Vaio desktop, not laptop, but that would make no difference.

To get it up and running I used my own key, connected to Sony's website,
then after I'd ordered the disk, did a clean install with the
proprietary disk.

Always enjoy a challenge, but this one was a bugger. Should have
figured as much though, knowing how well Dell likes it's reinstall disks.

I think a lot of it was like you say, lack of product knowledge and all
the proprietary drivers Sony had. But ain't gonna do it again.

Hmmm, can't say I've ever had that issue, was it not the original product
key or was it one that didn't have the version of Windows it belonged to on
the sticker?

I think that was the whole issue. This thing had been formatted and a
different version of XP (not media center) had been installed. It came
from a medical facility, so to insure privacy formatted it before even
firing it up; so I got my education quickly. Once I got my own XP in
and got the correct Sony disk, it didn't even ask for a key.
Now I know why the IT dept was so glad to dump this off to my buddy,
they didn't have the Sony disk, and didn't want to dink with it.

Go to Sony's website. The driver should be there.
