Vaio recovery CDs error

I have a Sony Vaio FW21L. In installed Windows 7 RTM MSDN version. I then tried to install all the drivers and sony software using the recovery cds but everytime it gets to 50% I get the error: vaio error 505 41 and the installer closes.

Does anyone know how I can sort this?

Well of course those cds were designed with another version of windows in mind (possibly vista). The preferred option would be to visit the manufacturer's websites and download the latest drivers, some of which will have some windows 7 drivers.

Try to install them normally, if that fails, use compatibility mode.
