Maybe try installing XP Pro SP3 instead. It works for me.

If you were to setup the XP installation on an external USB hard drive where the XP install was bootable, I imagine you could.

What about networking the 2133 to another computer and doing the installation from there?

Without a USB DVD drive, I really do not know what the best solution would be.

You might also try looking here...

They may have some useful information to help you. Also, take a look in your device manager and see if anything is NOT working and reinstall any drivers that are problematic.

think it is time to give up

updated bios, bought external dvd. reinstalled factory windows. still no sxs showing up. But sxs firewire card word fine. Maybe it is faulty.

computer can see cards when camera is plugged into the usb so the driver is working fine

did you check the bios settings (especially ahci/hot-swap settings)? call hp for help? perhaps someone you know who is very good with computers that can help you in person?

ah well it was worth a try, just seems like there is definitely a way since we have had reports of it working for others. odd that it is so complicated to get working

Sorry, Phil, I meant that completely as a joke. You exhausted options, tried things every which way. I don't blame you -- I'd have quit a while ago.

Hey Phil I know what you mean now.
Again, I'm sorry it didn't work.
Any other suggestion?
I'm about to go on a trip with the EX-3 and a few cards and I'm looking for the same thing.
Thanks.

yeah sony vaio subnotebooks are incredibly overpriced, as is just about anything that uses intel (ultra) low voltage chips. i say either go netbook with an atom processor and not expect to be able to play your footage or go with something with a real (not ulv) notebook cpu in it. sony and fujitsu are two of the few companies that have been consistently making subnotebooks/umpcs since before cheap netbook cpus were an option. Might wanna look into the Gigabyte M912 or Kohjinsha sc3 as i mentioned if you want <10" under $1000 with expresscard. if you can go just a little bit larger, something thats 12" might actually be able to edit. the HP tx2500z for example is a 12" tablet pc with 2ghz dual core cpu 3GB RAM and expresscard for $699 after $200 off coupon. thatd have no problem doing simple editing of XDCAM footage (id say its an up to 6x faster cpu than the 2133). and i love the idea of a tablet in the field since you dont have to be sitting or at a desk to use it.

oh yeah also lenovo's new ideapad s10 is a 10" netbook with expresscard and only $429, wont be shipping for at least a month though.

The HP tx2500 seems like a possible option.
Ideally I just have a very (ultra!) portable storage manager (and maybe viewer?) solution for locations. As for the storage itself I'll go for mirrored RAIDs.
When traveling and moving around it's a hassle and an extra risk to haul a laptop.
Panasonic has a great, but expensive solution, the P2 Gear.
