Sony VGN-Z21WN - Trying to install 7 on it... problems..
I tried to install the latest build of windows 7 today, I get to the point where it is starting to check info. It starts and then tells me it needs dvd drivers, now I am baffled as it got this far already.
Any ideas, it has been a long day and I probably have overlooked something really simple.

I'd guess the only thing you've overlooked is that it's a Vaio and they are, quite simply, the spawn of the devil :-)
The only thing I can think of is the Intel SATA drivers - I wouldn't expect you to need them but bitter experience of Sony suggests that anything is possible!

I'm installing it now on a pretty beefy Toshiba and it's taking an age to expand the Windows files...

Off topic with this but is the SIMS machine up to date with windows updates etc? .NET framework service packs being a very common issue there.

yeah sorry it was off topic, yeah everything is up to date.
