Hello sir, Hi, unless we find a replacement cd drive for your laptop. I don't see how this goes. you see, the laptop you have does not support boot from USB drives, (see setup on the bios first boot, hopefully theres a usb boot option, if not you may opt for a WINME install.) so its useless to use the internal CD rom drive.

How to format the Hard drive without a recovery Disk?

What you are saying is like "how to listen to Bryan Adams' music on your PC without having a PC". You are gonna need atleast a OEM edition of the operating system if you want to re-install. The OEM version costs about 40 bucks on stores like ebay and Amazon.

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.

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.

visit intel website to see if they have drivers for your ethernet card specifically for Vista. If they do, then download and save so that when Vista sees card and says it cannot finf driver you will be able to install afterwards.
