When i am swiching on the laptop it shows os not found


Dear Friend,
As there is no primary drive in this vaio, it boots form Hard drive. If OS on hard drive is corrupt OR HDD is bad then you will get such massage. Go to set up. Enable external booting option. Try booting the system from USB pen drive ( You have to make a bootable pen drive ). If it boots then you have to replace HDD.

How to make bootable pen drive


A FEW THINGS BEFORE YOU DO THIS....

1. Your Laptop has to support booting from a PEN DRIVE. Some BIOS's may refer to your pen drive as a USB floppy or USB zip.
2. The USB flash(pen) drive must support booting from it in general.
3. The flash drive must contain the boot/system files.
4. Below is a utility from HP that you can use to make your pen drive bootable.

I'm Having problem with Vista, not detecting Pen Drive


Unplug the pen drive before booting (newer laptops support booting from a USB drive, and they restore your "healthy restore point".

Format the Pen drive from Disk Management (right click on computer, choose manage, select Disk Management) to 32 bit fat, this leaves it compatible with Windows 98 SE, but the 16 Bit seems to give Vista fits. Good luck.
