Default Problems unlocking bootloader.

I've been following the instructions from Sony's site, I've got an unlock key OK. the phone goes into fastboot mode (blue light) bit won't connect to the PC (Win7). I've downloaded and installed the drivers as per the guide, but can't get fastboot to see the phone.

I've unlocked the bootloader and installed ROMs on HTC phones using the same PC without any issues, and I'd be happy to delete the files I've used and start again given a foolproof guide.

Update: I installed XP SP3 in VirtualBox and followed the instructions, worked perfectly, except the cmd wwindow didn't show a successful comletion. After waiting for around 40 minutes, I unplugged the phone and powered it on, it now shows Rooting Status - Bootloader Unlocked. Yay!
