The problem seems to be in your cds. In this case, especially if the product is still in warranty, you can ask from Sony website if they will send you a new set of cds.

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.

Ran out of disk space on my Vaio desktop PCV-RZ24G. 120 gig drive but c formatted to 19 gig. purchased a WD 250 gig and did a disk clone. installed in pc and at first power on it stops at no boot device...


This is what I disliked about the "Sony hard drive partitioning plan" - they don't give you all of the C partition and then you run out of space. Out of frustration, I formatted the entire hard drive so that no remnants of Sony was in it and installed a fresh copy of the operating system, used the product key from the original operating system, sticker (label) affixed on the case to active Windows again. I got the entire C partition all to myself! Since you cloned that hard drive, you still have the "Sony hard drive partitioning plan".

Make sure nothing is plugged in / or in the DVD drive like memory stick / DVD / CD etc.

Retry. if still no go,

Start up in safe mode and see if it starts that way.If it boots into BIOS see if drive is listed.

If still no go a failed HDD is indicated.

Sony VAIO seems to be crashed, says "Operating System Not Found"


Hi dinesh_srika,
If the Hard Drive is not detected in the BIOS, there may be some Hardware related issues with the Hard Drive. So it is better to repair the Computer at service Center to identify the exact issue and fixit.
Below is the link to contact the Sony Service Center.

OPERATING SYSTEM NOT FOUND....NO ACCESS TO CD DRIVE


Connect your external CDROM to the laptop. I think it is a USB CDROM. Enter your bios setup. In the boot device section, try to find any option which says First Boot Device -> USB CDROM. If you can set this things then the computer will be able to boot from your external cdrom.

Changing Sony Vaio BIOS


you should be able to exit and save changes, which my guess is you are exiting without saving the changes. theres is a way around this, by pressing either F8, F9, F10, or F12 to access the boot menu, and then you can boot from cd to install your linux operating system
