Hello All, I am new to this forum and would appreciated a response via e-mail. I am upgrading a Sony PCG-F630
with Win Me to XP. I need to upgrade the BIOS at the same time according to SONY. I have generated a floppy according to instructions which say to click on the xxx.exe bios file and it will copy files to the "prepared" floppy. By prepared I understood a bootable floppy. I used my winxp system to create a bootable disk. When I boot off of this disk and the flash routine runs I get an error message saying that it cannot run if HIMEM is active. Anyone knows any way around this problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
