Boot screen computer


bootable USB guide, here we assume that you are using either Vista or Windows 7 to create a bootable USB.
1. Insert your USB (4GB+ preferable) stick to the system and backup all the data from the USB as we are going to format the USB to make it as bootable.
2. Open elevated Command Prompt. To do this, type in CMD in Start menu search field and hit Ctrl + Shift + Enter. Alternatively, navigate to Start > All programs >Accessories > right click on Command Prompt and select run as administrator.
3. When the Command Prompt opens, enter the following command:
DISKPART and hit enter.
LIST DISK and hit enter.
Once you enter the LIST DISK command, it will show the disk number of your USB drive. In the below image my USB drive disk no is Disk 1.

4. In this step you need to enter all the below commands one by one and hit enter. As these commands are self explanatory, you can easily guess what these commands do.
SELECT DISK 1 (Replace DISK 1 with your disk number)
CLEAN
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
SELECT PARTITION 1
ACTIVE
FORMAT FS=NTFS
(Format process may take few seconds)
ASSIGN
EXIT
Don't close the command prompt as we need to execute one more command at the next step. Just minimize it.

5. Insert your Windows DVD in the optical drive and note down the drive letter of the optical drive and USB media. Here I use "D" as my optical (DVD) drive letter and "H" as my USB drive letter.
6. Go back to command prompt and execute the following commands:
D:CD BOOT and hit enter. Where "D" is your DVD drive letter.
CD BOOT and hit enter to see the below message.
BOOTSECT.EXE/NT60 H:
(Where "H" is your USB drive letter)

7. Copy Windows DVD contents to USB.
You are done with your bootable USB. You can now use this bootable USB as bootable DVD on any computer that comes with USB boot feature (most of the current motherboards support this feature).
Note that this bootable USB guide will not work if you are trying to make a bootable USB on XP computer.

Clean Install Windows on a Sony Vaio

Even if a Windows operating system is already installed on your Sony Vaio, it is possible to clean install the same version again or clean install an upgraded version of the Windows operating system over the current operating system.
A clean install of a Windows operating system overwrites the Sony Vaio's current operating system and cleans the hard drive by automatically deleting all of the applications, files and settings that are stored on the Vaio.

Create recovery discs for your Sony Vaio using the Vaio's built-in VAIO Recovery Wizard.
Access Vaio Recovery Wizard by going to the "Start" menu and clicking "Help and Support." Follow the screens in the VAIO Recovery Wizard to make recovery CDs for your computer.
Transfer files and programs that you want to save onto an external storage device, such as an external hard drive or a CD.
To transfer the files and programs to an external hard drive, plug the external hard drive into a USB port on the computer and drag and drop files from the computer into the external drive window.
To transfer the files and programs to CD, open a CD-burning software and choose the "Data Disc" option, upload all of the files into the program and "Burn" or "Write" them to the disc.


Place the Windows installation CD or DVD into the disc drive of your Sony Vaio.
If the computer is already on, reboot the computer.
If not, turn the computer on to boot the installation disc.

Follow the onscreen prompts to go through the installation wizard for the Windows operating system.
Enter the product key from the Windows operating system packaging, accept the terms of the operating system license and, if prompted to choose a type of partition for the Sony Vaio, select "NTFS."
Click the "Install Now" button on the last page of the installation wizard.
The operating system installs to the Sony Vaio.

Wait for the installation of the operating system to complete, which can take up to two hours on some systems.
Once the installation is finished, reboot the Sony Vaio and the computer should boot up to the operating system screen.

Save Data if possible.

Use Restore System; Restore Computer to Factory "New" Condition.. Sont Vaios have a Key Prompt which you hold down while booting and the Replacement Software already on a Sector of the Hard Drive. Check THe Manuel for this OR CALL SONY CUSTOMER SERVICE AND JUST GIVE THEM THE MODEL NUMBER AND ASK THEM WHICH BUTTON YOU PUSH ETC TO RESTORE THE COMPUTER TO "FACTORY CONDITION"

As you boot up press the F8 function key, you will then be able to select Last Known Good Configuration, if you are lucky Windows wil start up OK.
If not shutdown and restart again and press F8 again, this time select Safe Mode, this time if Windows starts up the screen resolution will be standard VGA mode. You will then be able to work out what is wrong.
If this doesn't work you will need to boot up with the Windows CD and do a system repair.
If this dosn't work you will need to do a complete reinstall of Windows plus the device drivers and all your software programs. Note - you will lose your data in this process.
