Windows 7: Installing Windows 7 on my Old Sony Vaio

Installing Windows 7 on my Old Sony Vaio

Hello guys. I have an old Sony Vaio. I haven't been using it but when my mom tried to use it, the OS was not working. Before I stopped using it, it was just working well. My sister needs it for school that's why now I'm trying to fix it. I wasn't able to make a backup CD because it doesn't have a DVD-ROM.

I'm trying to make a clean install of the OS. I downloaded this version: Windows 7 Home Premium x86 (32-bit) English - http://msft-dnl.digitalrivercontent..../X15-65732.iso

And then I used a program to create a bootable USB installer. But when I tried installing it, this error appears: imgbox - fast, simple image host

It's telling me that a driver is missing but I don't know which driver is missing.

My laptop is this one: Sony Vaio VPC-YB1S1E/S 11,6" LED - Fnac.com - Ordinateur ultra-portable

It's a bit old and I can't see it on Sony's site anymore. My dad bought it from Greece.

Hopefully you can help me because I'll be leaving in 2 days and I need to fix this before I leave. Thanks!

Your welcome .. Windows should Install most Drivers .. But you may need the Software for the Function keys ..

Everything needed is here to get and keep a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Be sure to pay close attention to how drivers are best handled in Win7.

There is also a Special Note for Sony Owners at the end to look at.
