a new hard drive wont have anything on at all,by saying you brought it "almost new" ill take it you got it from a friend all else where meaning there is no warranty, ask the previous owner if they ever made the recovery cds/dvds for the sony,if they have then its as simple as booting from the cds/dvds and reinstalling vista ,if not then you can either order recovery cds from sony direct but at a cost or use/borrow someone's vista cd to reinstall vista,
