I replaced a crashed hard drive on my sony vgc-ra820g desktop with a seagate 500gig eSATA hard drive and am trying to boot up with a newly purchased copy of windows vista home premium (recommended by sony) and am having trouble with booting.  
1) Do I need to boot with the drivers CD I have made, or do I need to put the drivers on a floppy for the original boot.
2) I have been in BIOS and the new hard drive is recognized (i think), and I changed the preference to read from the CD-ROM on boot up with the windows vista CD in the drive but this does not work.
3) What sequence should I use here for original booting and load of the drivers and OS.
