Default Cannot flash using flashtool

So i have an xperia m2, model D2303 running android version 18.0.C.1.13, which is essentially 4.3

I unlocked its bootloader, so far so good
Then i get into a bootloop
However, i did not panic since i knew it would happen
So, I decide to flash the same android version as above
But, flashtool does not have the flashmode drivers for this device... I tried installing all the drivers, but despite the installation being succesful, flashtool still says i need to install drivers...

Any ideas?

Xperia Sola development will be stopped after upgrading to ICS they said... Sola is basically a device with a slowly dying developping community they said... Developpers managed to port Jellybean from another device and they did it perfectly, they never said...

just press the reset button next to the sim card slot and it will load the driver s and try flashing again .

Well, it did install some drivers but although it goes into flashmode, it won't stay there, which means that the flashmode drivers aren't installed... This is the real problem i think
