Windows 7: Windows 7 Install on a Sony Vaio

Windows 7 Install on a Sony Vaio

Hello Everyone,

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-Z590 that has 2 x 64 GB SSD hard disks that are arranged in a RAID 0 config. When installing Windows 7, the files are copied and the computer reboots, but when it reaches 85% on the Completing Installation screen, the laptop will power off. I have checked to make sure that the power adapter is plugged into a working power source, checked the battery, and even opened up the laptop to make sure that the cooling fan is working, but it still shuts off at that point. I have also disabled the RAID and tried running the Windows 7 install off of a USB drive, but it still shuts down at the same point. Has anyone run into this problem with this model Sony, and if so, how did you resolve it? Thanks!

If you have not done the following you should, update drivers and check for BIOS updates, if you are doing a Vista to Windows 7 upgrade shut down any virus and malware protection then retry running the installation, if this is a clean installation skip the part about AV/Malware.
