FC4 hangs on SONY VAIO FJ series laptop

I have just installed FC4 on a SONY VAIO VGN-FJ1S laptop.  
Installation went flawlessly but the system hung up upon reboot at  
the "Hardware Initialization" stage, just afer printing "storage  
network" on the screen.

My guess is that the problem is related to the strange Phoenix BIOS  
in the machine which, in Windows XP, is assigning IRQs above 15 to  
the network card, USB controller, wifi card, Firewire, etc.

Any help?
