Reinstalling Applications On Sony Vaio Desktop

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Kimball K Kinnison, Mar 4, 2004.

  1. I have just bought a Sony Vaio Desktop PC. It comes with XP Home and a load
    of Sony Software. All the software (and the OS) is on a recovery disk.

    I have my own copy of XP Pro and want to format the disk and start afresh
    only installing the apps I want from the recovery disk.

    There is an option to install selected apps but with I run this on another
    PC it says (file not found) running it on the Vaio it is fine.

    Obviously it is looking for something on the Vaio - anyone any idea what
    this might. I don't want to format and then find I cant use any of the apps
    at all!
