Everything went fine for installing XP except for one thing, Veriface doesnt popup at statrup. Infact Veriface itself is not installed in the system itself where as i installed each and every driver for XP.Also the Shuttle centre is not there, might be that it was only made for Vista. Also I noticed sound and graphics quality in Games is far better in XP than in Vista.Only startup or booting time is a bit more in XP. Now got rid of Vista permanently except that i didnt touch the service partition as I installed XP on C: drive. Anybody having any idea how much will it cost to reset the whole system back to original state at the Lenovo service centre if required in the near future ?
As far as u r advice regarding DVD drive is concerned nothing worked for it mate.

Well, that's quite expectable, aryun.
You've blocked the region code of DVD.
Software I posted is to play any dvd with any region code, but not to change code of the DVD-ROM itself. To change the region code of the drive itself you'll have to flash the drive's firmaware. As far as most devices in Y510 are checked for DMI information and the drive has a pretty chance to be Lenovo-only-certified, if you flash it's firmware you'll be able to use it on any other laptop but not your Y510.
If you want such an experiment -google for firmware and procedure details. You may start here.

I did what u mentioned. I posted a question on rpc1 forum http://forum.rpc1.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=44157, but no luck.
Can you suggest me an alternate DVD drive brand that I can install on my Y510 and flash it to watch mutiregion DVD's without any problem ?
