Ravi, can you post what model number that you have? Yes, it apparently does make a difference. There have been a few posts about the Vaio and I can't remember what the issue is on some of them, but, I remember that some distros have specific settings that have to be enabled during the install to make it work.

I would guess that RedHat 7 will not work well on the newer Vaio systems.
