    Update: Changed BIOS backup procedure, so no malware notices will be raised by stupid AntiVirus software.

    Please provide the full model number.

    Hi you mentioned something about Always Enable PEG on the Z1 thread and said "smells like we have freed another nice laptop from bad drivers"

    could you elaborate? sorry should we change this setting to disabled?

    Yes I had already enabled AHCI in regedit, and I am not running RAID0 (only one drive). Hmm, ill keep playing and see if I can get past BSOD.

    Any other things you think could be causing it?

    EDIT: After some further testing (including re-installing a fresh copy of windows), it seems to BSOD if changed to either AHCI or IDE, so anything other than RAID... Not really sure what else to try - btw I am using the latest version of the modded bios, is it worth trying the older version?

    The development is on hold since there is yet to find a VAIO S owner that is willing to collaborate and has a SPI flasher and soldering skills. If anybody donates a (broken/bricked) VAIO S, I will look into that deeper.

    I won't release anything that is untested and can possibly brick anybody else's machine.

    what about the fan speeds/noise - seems a major issue - any progress on that? or a way to control it so its not a jet engine/hoover in the background
