Question about Sony VAIO PCV-LX800 PC Desktop
Can anyone tell me how to install WinXP on my PCV-LX800. I was told to upgrade BIOS before install XP. But when I try to install the BIOS (got from SONY website), it keeps asking for drive A:. While there is a Drive A: icon in "MY Computer", there is no physical floppy drive on the computer. The USB floppy I use is other brand and is always recognized as drive E:. Thanks for the help.
You can get an internal floppy drive for like $10, shipping and all, from NewEgg. Or you can try to change the letter designation of your USB floppy using the Disk Manager. I'm not sure if that'll do the trick, but it's worth a try.
What OS do you currently have?
Are you sure that a BIOS update is absolutely necessary?
I mean was Sony the ones who told you to do it?
Sometimes, these can be done from a CD, but usually have to be burned from an *.ISO image to work. If Sony has that, they should have explicit instructions for installation.
