You could try restoring the laptop with the CDs that Sony supplied with it. I've seen such oddities if a retail OS is installed.

With the issue on problems of installing retail OS came up, wouldn't it be better to buy notebooks with 64 bit processor after the retail version of 64bit Windows OS comes out. If one buys Athlon 64 bit notebook now and then try to install the retail version of 64 bit OS in the future, then wouldn't one experience similar problems?

For me. No.

Installing Windows is really very easy, once you know that Microsoft doesn't update the BIOS, setup the BIOS, fetch motherboard, video, USB, audio and more drivers and install such for you.

The XP 64 issue is not unlike this. You'll be an expert and not an user of this OS.
