You can't. Your disk is OEM and tied to the original system. Even if it
isn't BIOS locked, it is activated on that system. You would not be able to
activate it on the Sony. XP can only be activated on one system at a time.
If you never had to activate, it was likely activated at the factory or, as
I stated above, BIOS locked.
