SOURCE: operating system not found

Hi there.
Hard drives don't come with operating systems on them, you have to reinstall the OS yourself either with your recovery CD or an install disk.
Post back if you need anymore advice.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

SOURCE: I can't boot up the Vista install on a Sony Vaio VGN-NR160E

go to your BIOS Setup, see to it that there is a Hard Disk Boot Priority, maybe you didn't put it there.

Go to download the drivers that you require from the Sony WEB site, to their support/download page. Make sure you input your model laptop and select the Windows OS that matches your installed operating system.

SOURCE: how to format sony vaio pcg-4 series

Boot from the "System Restore" CD-ROM.
One of the "setup" options for XP (or for Vista) is to "format" the entire disk-space, before continuing with the re-install.

SOURCE: sony vaio operating system not found when computer

You can try running the installation/recovery disc that came with the computer or the built-in recovery system (if it has one) to try and repair the windows installation. The problem is if the computer is saying that the operating system is not found then critical files got deleted from something like a virus or the hard disc drive has stopped working. You may have to do a format and re-install of the windows OS.

What would be the probable cause of a sony vaio fs830/w of starting up & the 3 green leds on top stayed lit


You were FORMATTING it? Meaning... you were erasing the operating system? If that's the case, then... you have no operating system and the computer cannot boot up because it has no operating system to boot into.

Recovery partition cannot be found


If your Sony VAIO computer has been infected with a virus, its system files may be deleted or corrupted, which will cause system instability.


Depending on the type of virus or the specific files lost, you may not be able to manually fix the problem.


You can restore all of the system files back to their original condition and recover the operating system to its factory settings by using a hidden recovery partition on the VAIO


Click start control panel scroll to folder options view place a tick in show hidden files folders and drives.
This may vary depending on your operating system.



Close any programs that are currently open.

Transfer any files you want to keep from the Sony VAIO's hard drive to another source, such as a USB memory stick.


Disconnect any peripheral devices that are hooked up to the VAIO, such as a printer or network cable.

Open the "Start" menu and choose "Help and Support."


Click "Back Up & Recovery" and then navigate to "VAIO Recovery Center." Select "Launch VAIO Recovery Center."


Click "Restore Complete system" underneath the "Choose a Program" heading.

Click "OK" and follow the prompts to restore your Sony VAIO's system files back to their original condition.


hope this helps

My Sony Vaio Laptop (Model VPCEE42FX) isnt working, it turns on, but then it says "Operating System Not Found." Can you help me ?


The laptop cannot find the Operating system which is installed on your hard disk drive. Go into the BIOS (setup menu) and see if the hard disk drive is present. If it is then your might need to reload the OS ( operating system software,i.e. Winodws Vista, Windows 7 ). If the BIOS does not detect your hard drive then either your hard drive is defective or the motherboard has a problem.

Operating System Not Found on VAIO Laptop


The disk-drive inside the computer has ceased to function (or has ceased to have connected "power" and "data" connections) -- thus, the Operating System cannot be read from the disk-drive.

Take the computer to a qualified technician; there's nothing that you can do "inside" your computer.
