1)I assume your 64GB ssd is installed & the UX is assembled- power it on.
2)Hold the Fn key & tap 2 key during the VIAO splash screen to enter bios setup.
3) Toggle right to Advanced screen. make sure that your 64GB is listed at the top for Hard Drive. Go down to External Drive Boot & set it to Enabled.
4) Toggle right to Boot screen & make sure that USB optical drive or hdd is further up in sequence than internal hdd. save changes (Fn & R or F10) & exit.
5) If you have usb dvd drive, plug it into the UX, load your retail Win7 disc, boot up & follow the instructions to install. (create & format a partition, etc)
6) If you have a usb flash drive, use Microsoft's usb tool to prep the drive & copy the iso. Plug it into the UX, boot up & follow the instructions to install.
7) Go to this thread at post# 50, & download Gabe's win7 driver pack ver1.2. Run the exe (which will unzip- it might say that it failed on the Upeck driver- ignore it) View all the readme files which give the correct order for what drivers & when to install Win7 updates (& microsoft's drivers).
8) After all that, pretty much everything on the UX should work. It might not be a bad idea to go to Control panel/ Device Manager- get the details on major hardware items (Intel 945GMS chipset, Intel 950GMA video, Marvell/Yukon 88E8036 ethernet, Intel 3945 wifi, Realtek Hi def Audio) then go to the manufacturers' sites & get the newest win7 drivers.

I have VGN-UX380N. And I want to install Windows 7 32-bit Ultimate. When I boot from my USB drive and select language, etc, the installation asks me for CD/DVD/USB/HDD drivers to install. I don't know what to do. Could somebody tell me what should I download so the installation could find my hdd. I tried different boot sequence options. None of them worked and my hdd is still not found in the installation of win7 and still asks me for some drivers. :(

I installed windows 7 but it won't install any win 7 drivers at all.
Why is it doing that.

What do you get when you try to install drivers? Which drivers are you using? (get Gabe's driver pack ver1.2 from post#50 on page 5 of this thread- view all the readme files) Did you turn off User Account Control?

Gabe's driver pack?

Postby Gadgetguy » Wed Jan 30, 2013 11:56

Hello all,

I have just tried to download Gabe's driver pack (as per page 5 of this thread) but it is not there any more.

Would anybody have an alternative location?

Thank you so much!

Hi WICKEDMAN. Did you try the download at the bottom of the page (version 1.2)?

I've updated the driverpack, now under 58MB total, with a full-featured, lightweight (20MB or so) PS QL 5.8.2 with full support for firefox 3.6, personal safe, custom launcher support, etc with a 2010 glitch-free driver.

It was the driver pack that worked for me, and finally allowed me to calibrate the touchscreen of my UX1XN so that I can now tap at the outer edges/corners of the screen, as well as use the camera, capture button, touch launcher, and zoom keys, which I couldn't before.
