Call sony, the disk is 12 bucks. I had this problem after my hard drive crashed. Be careful though, because I replaced the hard drive and it would not recognize the disk after that. Sony wanted me to pay 100 dollars to fix it.

Where can I download the factory recovery discs for my Sony Vaio PCG-U3?


Sadly, you'll likely need to call Sony and order a set. It usually isn't too expensive, but there are just so many laptop models out there that I don't believe there is any online database with them.

Hello,

If you have not removed all the partitions then you can boot with any OS disk and clear the c partition.After that take out the disk and press the recovery option.It should autometicaly partition the disk and reload the OS.

If you made any changes in the partition table then recovery could be done with the OS disk only.

Thanks.

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.
