Ketan,

It seems that your machine is not having no OS, You can press F2 to go to BIOS and make sure the First Boot device should be HDD.
You should also make sure the HDD is listed there and it is working fine (Run the HDD test from there).

Hope this will resolve your prolem!

With regards

Os system not found,i cant boot windows


Hi khanaboki1,

This issue may occur if the Computer is not detecting the Internal Hard Disk Drive in it. Resetting the BIOS to the default values should fix the issue.

To reset the BIOS to the default values, please restart the Computer, press and hold the F2 Key. This will take you the BIOS Utility Window, there, please press the F9 Key to load the default values then F10 to save and exit. After that, please try restarting the Computer to check if the issue is fixed.

If the issue is not fixed, please try disconnecting all the external devices connecected to the Computer. Also, please confirm if the Hard Disk Drive is listed in the BIOS main window.

If the issue still persists, you may need to perform the System Recovery in the Computer to fix the issue. In that case, you can try accessing the Recovery Partition in the Computer to perform the System Recovery. To access the Recovery Partition, press and hold the F10 Key while restarting the Computer. This will launch the VAIO Recovery Wizard. There, please click "Proceed with System Recovery" and then you can select the "Restore C: Drive" option to re-install the Operating System in the Computer. Performing the Restore C: Drive will erase all the User Data in the Computer and restore it back to the factory settings.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck!

How do you restore the laptop with the internal restore system


1. According to the specifications available online, your Computer is shipped with the VAIO Recovery Center software, present in a hidden partition. You can use the VAIO Recovery Center to install the preinstalled Operating System, Applications and the original Drivers.

2. Restart the Computer and press the F10 key when the Sony logo appears to check whether the Computer is able to access the VAIO Recovery Center.

NOTE: Restart the System, tapping the F10 key immediately. This should trigger the System to boot directly to the Recovery Partition, and initiate the VAIO Recovery Center, without requiring the Windows Operating System to load.

3. If you're able to access the VAIO Recovery Center, select the option 'Restore C: Drive' and follow the onscreen instructions to perform a C: Drive Recovery to resolve the issue.

4. Performing a C: Drive Recovery will erase all the data present in the C: Drive and will reinstall the pre-installed Operating System, Applications and the original Drivers.

Reformat system - for Sony Vaio - part 2


You have to create the recovery cd using the Sony Recovery Media kit creator program.
It should be in the control panel. It requires 1 DVD and 1 CD-R cd. Or 7 CD-R cds.

You can however use the recovery wizard, but it will erase the Recovery Media Kit. It also can be found by using the recovery wizard in the control panel.
