Win 8 will complain if you try to downgrade without removing Win 8 first. Use Ubuntu to clean off the old Win8 and try again from the DVD ISO.

There should be a factory image on the HD when you try restarting it. Hold down the F8 key or F10 key while its rebooting this should start the recovery process you shouldnt need a windows disk.

SOURCE: sony vaio operating system not found when computer

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.

What happened to Windows 7 Support?
Downgrade to Windows XP until everything is ready to re install.

Can you upgrade to Windows 8?
Perhaps your Sony PC is just getting too Old.
Good Luck

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.

Then, continue with the further setup process.

Wlan driver problem in vaio vgn-cs21gn


Hi...
This is Nishit Jadawala from Ahmedabad, India. I am also having the same problem with my Sony Vaio VGN-CS21GN Laptop. WiFi was working perfectly in Vista but when I downgraded it to Windows-XP it started giving me errors that "Driver Not Found for the Device" I have downloaded all the drivers available on internet but nothing worked.
Finally after 8 months of research on this problem, I came to know that there is a bug in the supplied Windows XP-SP3 Operating System. There is a file in Service Pack 3 that doesn't allow drivers to access the hardware of WiFi.
The Solution is you will have to forget the bundled windows XP and upgrade your operating System. Right now better option is to go for windows 7. It dint even asked for any kind of drivers to load. WiFi is also working perfectly on it. The laptop has become more faster & smoother than in windows XP.
For more queries, you can write to me on mail.squarez@gmail.com
Thanks & Regards,
