SOURCE: operating system not found
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!!

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.

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.

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.

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
