Do you still have the original hard drive and can you still boot into it? If you can still get back in, run VAIO Recovery TOOL > VAIO Recovery Utility. You will be able to make a set of recovery CDs thats built into the system.

You definitely need to get a recovery CD (Windows XP or Vista). There's no way for you to reinstall windows if you don't have the CD.

I've got the blue screen of death stating "unmountable_boot_volume" for my Sony VAIO VGN-NR110E. the technical information says "STOP: 0x000000ED (0x84FE9248, 0xC0000185, 0x00000000,...


That error appears when the corruption of the hard disk is so great that even the file system and its partitions (including the recovery one) are gone.
You must order a recovery cd directly from Sony, there's no other way.

I am trying to restore to the original state with the three recovery disks my Vaio VGN-NW350F but it first showed an error 320 and then an error 330. Afterwards I cannot even run the program to restore...


1. For Error 320 or 330 , if possible, run the RAM hardware diagnostics to determine if the RAM has failed.
2. Disconnect all external hardware that is attached to the computer.
3. Reset the BIOS to the factory defaults.
4. If the RAM passes the test, only the HDD requires service.
This error also may occur if you are performing a system recovery on a new unformatted hard drive or if sector 0 of the hard drive was cleaned.
Select the "Restore Complete System" option from teh recovery discs and during the installation wizard choose YES for the option "Do you want to keep the factory default hard drive size?".

Sony vaio VGN-cs15gn/b recovery cd


Hi,

The computer is shipped with Recovery Center. There are no system recovery discs included with the computer. The recovery data required to return the computer to the original, factory-installed condition is included on a special partition of the hard drive. You can use the same to create Recovery discs, please follow the steps mentioned below to create the recovery discs for your computer model.

Sony Vaio VGN-NR498E recovery disk


Hello

Well, the recovery disks won't allow you to go to your present system. The recovery disks are designed to put everything back the way it was when you bought the computer, minus all your applications and data. If it's your data that you need then a reputable repair service like mine can slave your hard drive to another system and recover all your data (not applications), provided the hard drive has not electronically or mechanically malfunctioned. Again, a reputable repair person can tell you the status of the hard drive.

Thanks

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-N130G. It crashed and I am trying to get it to reboot from the recovery disc but after the first disc starts the Complete C drive thing it stops and says ERROR 400 and can't...


Make sure that the operating System on the recovery CDs is the same as the one on your computer.
If you are trying to recover from a CD with Vista and your computer operating system is Win-XP that will not work.

Other Thing may be you had a hidden partition and some how you over written it or it is damaged.
check the hard disk partition stat.

Sony vgn ux 280p dont know password


In that case, you may perform C: Drive Restore using the Recovery Partition. You may access the Recovery Partition by restarting the Computer and tapping the F10 key for 10 to 15 seconds. Please select the "Restore C: Drive" in the VAIO Recovery Center.

Windows xp backup discs for sony VGN-FE770G notebook


call sony and tell them to send you *their* disks. they have them, and may charge you a small fee for the cd's and shipping. HP had a similar problem, but cd-s through snail mail should fix the problem.
