1.Switch off your mini
2.remove battery and wait for 5 seconds before you reinsert it
3.keep holding upper volume button and connect usb cable (make sure its already connected to PC)
4.if there's blue notification light, then its fastboot mode.
5.Also you need fastboot driver installed from sdk on your PC

May be, if you are familiar with all above steps, i guess something wrong on PC. check with removing & reinstalling fastboot driver from sony's site

I am familiar with this steps. It's not pc problem. My st15i trim area it's damaged maybe after phone bricked.

You say you had unlocked bootloader before flashing ST15i)_4.0.2.A.0.42_CE ftf
And then you upgrade to .587 via pc companion ?

Because AFAIK when I tried updating same on my friends phone with unlocked bootloader. Pc companion denied to update because of software modification.
And if you were successfully updated then most probably your bootloader is relocked. So you may wanna check that!

Also try for hard reset if possible!
