FYI. This downgrade also works on FW11-M.
Hello everybody, pls can anyone help me with FW13GU drivers for windows XP Professional? I bought this laptop and i can say that im really dissapointed with its performance on Vista
GUys i really need some help here.
I have a sony FW21L, i wont to install xp on it. at first i couldn't even get it to boot from a xp dvd or cd., i just got the blue screen. i read this thread an used the drivers in this thread with nlite. it seemed to work i installed xp, that was until the laptop restarted and the xp logo came up and bang the blue screen again, and now i have a none working laptop and no way to fix it?
i have a FW11E wich driver pack from the sony site should i download? and should i slipstream the pack from vaion site into the xp boot cd or is it the sata controller driver i should slipstream on to the XP bootable cd?
Sorry to come to this so late and start up this old thread again. I've a VGN FW11E and would like to downgrade to XP as some of my external hardware (music stuff) doesn't work with Vista.
This thread looks very useful, but I'm a complete novice computer-wise and some of this thread is confusing. Before I start, I wanted to check whether, when creating a new install disc usinc nLite, do I include all of the drivers that gore.m included in his driver pack or just some of them? Also, is this pack the most complete or have any others been posted in the intervening 18 months since gore.m's post.
Any help and advice greatfully received.
1| It is hard to tell, you shoul download drivers which you have inside your FW.
2| Yes, you have to slipstream your XP.
Im using FW for music too and I had to install XP because of my music HW.
You need all drivers for running XP on FW, but you need only AHCI driver for slipstream your XP.
You can have look to Vaio support, they maybe already released all drivers for FW|XP. But Im still runing my FW without problems with all drivers Ive posted above.
If anybody have updated pack, it can be very nice to post it here for us.
Can I install these driver for win XP 64 bit SP2? My laptop is FW290.
