You cannot clone a desktop XP operating system and expect it to boot in a completely different hardware environment. At best you might get away with it by performing a repair install on the "cloned" drive before attempting to boot it but you are likely to run into drive recognition problems and other hardware conflicts that are not easy to overcome. What is on the Sony Vaio at the moment that you feel you need to wipe it ? Does it have SATA harddrive? Do you have an XP install CD?
