Welcome to SevenForums. Any computer running Vista can be upgraded to Windows Seven are you considering 32 or 64 bit and what are the processor and ram in your Sony? Regarding dual booting Vista and W7.......why once you see the W7 OS you'll never look back to Vista or XP unless some old software only works in XP.

As you have been looking Sony's website, are there Win XP drivers for your model?

All comes down to drivers.
