Finally manged to find the time to buy a new optical drive…its a Sony DRX-S70U , an external usb burner.
Got it connected to my Vaio’s usb port…at last burnt the DVD ISO of Klikit.
Now another issue, how do I boot with this DVD??
Went into the setup…F2…Enabled External boot, in Advanced.
Than in Boot order changed the order from Int. Optical, hard drive, External Floppy to External Floppy, Internal Hard drive & Internal Optical.
But still wont boot from the usb optical drive though it reads it in My Computer as DVD Drive (F).
In Device manager its set at Secondary IDE channel.
How can I boot from a USB optical drive is the question of the day…This drive is nice quiet & reads all media…but the stupid Matshita optical drive is real Shi_ _ y…Sony must have made loads by using this optical drive.
Hoping to hear from you smart guys!
