    Hello Gore.m

    Of course yes, the BD-ROM is the first boot device.

    OK
    You can try to slipstream AHCI driver included on Vaio Support site http://rapidshare.com/files/150530752/TEMPEXEFOLDER.rar.html

    If it doesnt help , you can try older nlite versions (I can check which version I have used) and you should check slipstream process again .

    1/ open folder where is XP (FULL XP , NO ALREADY SLIPSTREAMED , FULL COPY OF DISC - with magic iso ) installation stored
    2/ open it and add intel driver and sellect only one which you need
    3/ finish and burn on good medium

    nlite is adding only driver , so if driver or nlite is wrong installation should have same running as without slipstream , if it doesnt there have to be anything wrong with item 1 .

    The guide on this topic was great.
    I slipstreamed a service-pack as well.
    Problems occure with installation when the Cd/DVD is not bootable, so after slipstreaming try it first on another computer. The collection of drivers mentioned on this site are sufficient for my FW11e
    The only thing remaining is the Fn keys. The laptop seems 50% faster so its worth the effort. Thanks a lot.

    I did a clean install of XP on my FW190, everything is great, but what audio drivers are you guys using?

    Anyone know if it is possible to turn off the tap to click feature on the touchpad under xp. I tried the driver from the synaptics web site and also he one from Sony. But the feature to do it under mouse in the control panel is not there.


    Wanted to note that the driver for xp and windows is to.tally different. the one for xp is synaptics and the one for windows is alps
