- - Start the VAIO and enter the BIOS by pressing F2 several times when the VAIO logo is displayed. Go to the Boot section by pressing the right arrow and enable the external drive boot option by pressing enter and selecting enabled. Confirm by pressing enter again, then press the right key once more and select exit setup. Select Yes and press enter.
- - Boot the unit with your XP SP2 disc in the drive and press F6 at the beginning of the windows setup to install a raid driver. Insert the floppy in the USB floppy drive and wait until the system asks you to Specify a driver. Press the S button to specify the driver and select the driver. Confirm by pressing enter and enter again to continue the setup.
