OK, no problem.
Just to be clear, you Vaio isnt supported on windows 10
The most recent drivers for your specific model are for windows 7 64 bit. with that being said, you may be able to get the machine running on windows 10 by installing the windows 7 64 bit drivers after you install windows 10.. But, you may not have an internet connection until you install those drivers.
So if you are going to upgrade, what I suggest is to use a USB memory stick or external hard drive. Download every single windows 7 64 bit driver, and then save them to the USB memory stick or external drive. That way, after you upgrade to windows 10, you have the drivers ready to install.
Also, you definitely want to create a system image backup of windows 7 first, just in case.. Heres how to do that,

Hi, I never heard back from you after you viewed my answer. Did you still need help with this issue?
When you say OEM windows 7.. Can you describe to me how the disk it self appears, and what it says on it.
Thanks.. And I assume the back is entirely scracth free? I ask because normally you shouldnt have to install any drivers..
The reason you have to install them, is because you are usinga non standard dvd drive.. The matshita drive you have is a Blu ray drive, whose drivers werent included with windows 10.
What you could try to do is load this file onto a usb and then pointing the windows 7 install at this file
But most likely, what you will need is a cheap , usb dvd drive. Such as this
Or, you could burn the disk to a USB memory stick, and then boot from that instead, removing the need for cde drivers until windows is installed and can install them from windows update.
Apologies for the delay.
It may bing up the first initial install screen, but you can cancel out of that.. It cant install without you clicking through several install screens, so you have a wide margin of safety there.
With that being said, the process to convert an install dvd to a usb is a bit in depth.. But you can complete it by following these steps
What i can say is this, you have an OEM disk. The OEM disk checks the model of the machine. As those OEM disks are only meant to install windows on one exact and specific model. ( they arent full windows 7 i nstall disks, that you could use on any machine)
You either need to buy an actual install disk, such as this http://amzn.to/2a0cSnz
Or, if you have a windows 7 product key already. Tell me what version of windows 7 that product key is for, such as home, basic, pro, etc. And I can help you create an i nstall disk to use with your product key

That disk you had, is to reinstall windows 7 sp1 on a machine that already had a valid copy of windows installed on it.
Meaning, youd have to reinstall vista first, have it running.. And then use the windows 7 install disk you have while vista is running.
Thats the only way you can get that disk to allow you to install windows.
Your best bet is to keep the product key you have.. And then download a full wi ndows 7 install ISo.. And then properly burn that iso to disk to make it bootable using a program like imgburn
You can get the iso files here on this page, make sur eit matches your product key and windows 7 version
And you can get imageburn here
Your disk is for OEM reinstalls.. but all you really need is the product key.. If you make a disk as suggested, you can install windows 7 without further issue.
Understood.. I wish I would have known about your update issues. I could have helped, lots of people were trying to beat that deadline.
get back to me whenever is convenient for you,
I understand that completely. Ive been masquerading as a gopher all morning myself.
