Howdy all. I have Sony VAIO (VGN-A317M) laptop which recently had it's hard drive screwed by Windows, with all my coursework and other important stuff on. At the moment I'm booting from Linux and trying to copy over the important files before a fresh format. However... The laptop has a SATA drive and no floppy , nor do I have any drivers for any hardware. How can I install the drive during the installation? My guess would be use a USB floppy but would that be supported? Or how do I put the drivers in an XP installation? Cheers, any help or links would be sweet. Bg.
