I finally decided to clean install my Vaio Z21 with Vista Ultimate to be able to use the hidden 10GB of the Harddisk. Everything went quite well and I have now a clean device manager with NO remaining question marks. However I have some left-over drivers from the Sony Website for the Z21 and I was wondering which devices I would need them for
Can somebody help me out with the followoing Drivers? All of them are of the *.inf type, so i really do not know to which device I have to attachen them to. Just right-clicking on the file and selecting 'install' does not do the trick.
1) ME Driver Intel 4.0B 188.8.131.525 2) SOL Driver Intel 4.0B 184.108.40.2065 3) Sony HDD Protection Driver 1.3 1.3.08.04 (As I use an SSD-Drive I do not need those anyway, do I?) 4) TPM Professional Package Infineon 3.0L 3.00.1413.05 5) Windows Image File Mini-Filter Driver 6.0 SP1 6.0.6001.18000 Exe Batch 6) Wireless WAN Driver Option 4 83 1 220.127.116.11 logo
My Z21 has the follwoing configuration: nVidia GS 8300 M with 1600x900 120GB SSD Hard Drive 4 GB RAM
I'm a computer programmer and im having problems installing vista on a sony vaio. (to install XP i have to slipstream drivers into the isntallion which takes too long to do)
so i want to reinstall vista at this point for now my last install of vista somehow got screwed up oneday i booted up and it was missing windows files so i formatted it burned a vista install cd everything boots fine the install screen come up ....
I own a vgn-SR190. I recently had HD failure, so had to buy new HD and reinstall vista. My original version of Vista was Business 32-bit. I didn't make a recovery disc. So I went out and bought vista ultimate 32-bit. Figured I wouldn't have problems, but I did.
I'm having the driver issues that someone in another thread talked about, when you get the problem with vaio mode switch and the battery issue. I downloaded the drivers for Vista Business, figured it would be the same for Ultimate. But I just read someone's post here that the home premium 32-bit drivers are the same as the ultimate 32-bit drivers. Is that true? if it is, I would just have to download the home premium drivers. I just wanted to know if anybody knows for a fact that the home premium drivers are the same as the ultimate drivers, seeing as the business drivers are obviously different.
I am starting a massive update project on my Vaio Z now that I have collected all the necessary parts. My Z is a VGN-Z27GN and the current configuration is with a 2.53GHz CPU, 4GB RAM, BluRay burner and a 16GB Mtron Pro 7000 Solid State Drive (when I originally ordered it I a couple months ago I had the standard 320GB hard Disk replaced with the SSD). Though it's only 16GB it works for me as I only use it for the OS itself, all my data and files are on external disks.
My current upgrade project now that I've gathered all the parts is: - X9100 3.06GHz Extreme Edition CPU - Kingston HyperX low-latency DDR3 SODIMM 4GB - Solidata X1 SSD 32GB (currently the fastest 240MB/s read, 220MB/s write SSD)
I am posting here a brief benchmark set on Everest with my current configuration and will after the upgrades repeat the tests. I am running Windows XP SP3. Boot-up takes approximately 14 seconds and overall as it is the system is extremely fast and ultra-responsive. As you can see by both the base system's performance and the current Mtron SSD, the numbers are really good as they are.
So, I am eager to see the tests results after the upgrade is complete.
Here's my dilemma: I have no clue how to open the Vaio Z and get the CPU or the SSD inside (replacing the RAM is obviously a no-brainer). So, I would like to request help (ideally a step-by-step thing) on how to crank the Z open to access the CPU and the HD compartment. I do not have the faintest clue on how to do it.
I have an Upgrade dvd Vista business to Win 7 that I received for my z790. Finally got around to install Win 7 and seems like I will need to install Vista first to be able to use the upgrade DVD. Any workaround?
My secondary objective is to install new SSD.The way I see it now:
1. Ghost XP on SSD
2. Install Vista on SSD
3. Install Win 7 on SSD
Is there an easier way to do it? Any more pitfalls to avaoid? Thanks!
the only Win 7 key that I have is the upgrade Vista to Win 7. Am I correct that retail/all versions install Win 7 disk will not let me use this key?

I have an HP Pavilion dv5 that cam,e with Win 7 Home Premium. I have upraded the OS to Win 7 Ulitimate.
I now am going to sell the dv5 and want to install the Win 7 Ultimate Upgrade on a different computer. Do I have to deactivate the Win 7 Ultimate upgrade license, or can I just restore the dv5 to factory condition using the Recovery Drive .
And then just install the Win 7 Ultimate Upgrade on another computer?
I used a Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit installation DVD to replace Windows 7 Professional 64-bit on my Elitebook 8740w. In the end, I used a clean installation as the upgrade option ended up with a fail error. However, after doing the clean install, it can't detect any wifi. What drivers am I likely to need to download and re-install?
