I have Sony C1VFK, I have been using the same Windows Installation from last 2 Years which is kind of unbelievable for myself as well. I have a LiteOn External USD CD ROM which will not boot the computer probably because there is no option in the BIOS for this. Although i have downloaded a new BIOS from Sony Vaio Link but when i try to update it gives an error message saying that I have memory or emm386 installed i have NO idea what that is and how to stop or remove it. So i have 2 questions.
1. What should i do to remove emm386 and update Bios, I have no option to boot from a USB Device at the moment, and also dont have an external or internal floppy disk drive, all i have is an external USB CD ROM and a USB FLASH DRIVE and a USB Hard drive, which doesnt boot the system at all. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
2. I think Running the recovery disks is impossible with out having to boot from the USB CD ROM. But if there is a way around this i would like to know about it and this will solve all my worries as well. I am hoping to hear from the experts of the exchange very soon on this and in great details if you please can. Any help will be greatly appreciated in this matter as well.
Kind Regards to all.
