Well, how much storage do you have available?
There are dozens of models of Sony VAIO with a wide range of hard drives,
RAM and other components. You'll need to be more specific to give us a fair
chance to help you.
How big is your hard drive (or drives if more than one)? How much software
was pre-installed, and how much - applications and data - have you added
before the current installation attempt? Sound files are usually not too
large, but video and other graphics files take a lot of room. If you need
much multimedia, then "Vista for Business" may not be the best version for
Vista's own functions can take a lot of room. The hibernation file, the
paging file, system restore points and other files cans use a lot of disk
space. But we don't really know where to start because we don't know
anything about your computer. We can't see it, so all we know is what
you've told us.
