  1. Hello. Recently I was messing around with my Vista OS and had to do a system restore. I then got a problem where I was stuck at a blank screen with only a pointer no matter how I booted it. I wanted to go to XP anyway, not that I have anything against Vista. I found this program and found it simple enough and I'm now working on that very laptop with XP. I have a large problem, though. I am running on a Sony Vaio VGN-AR520E... not that it matters. The whole product line came preinstalled with Vista Home Premium, so they obviously do not want to mess with Windows XP. All of their drivers are in a Vista format. I scrounged around enough to get my wireless card working, the graphics card moving optimally... I am doing everything was able to on Vista, but I have a problem. My sound card does not work and I cannot find any drivers for it is Sony specific. Here is my question: I had to use nLite in the first place to load some SATA drivers into a copy of XP in order to get past an error with an undetectable hard drive. I can download all of the Sony Vaio drivers, and they come in a .exe format, which I cannot run. Would it be possible to download these drivers, and incorporate them with the SATA driver despite them being in another format? I would like to pull these .exe files into the installation disk and have these drivers installed with XP itself. I do not know if because of their Vista format I cannot or if I cannot just because they are executable files. That is all. Thanks
