I have a sony viao and trying to do a recovery on it want booth are start in normal are safe mode


If you have not burned a set of recovery disks, I believe when you boot up you can get to the recovery partition. During the boot with the splash screen on (the thing that says VIAO in the begining), start pressing the F10 or F12 key. This should bring up the boot options and allow you to boot from the recovery partition and restore the computer back to factory settings. If you burned the disks for the computer, just place disk one in the drive and boot.

Hope this helps and it was what your were looking for.

If you really want to format it and wipe everything then you will need a copy of Windows Vista to boot up from, but if I were you I would give Vista the elbow and buy XP instead.
