Basically Sony Recovery CD 1 is design to reinstall the operation system which is Window XP Home edition by doing so it will format the hard drive. Yes you should partitation the hard drive if you haven't yet, good idea is to split the partiation into C:/ & D:/ Just in case in the future you have a virus & can't not log in into Window which is primary C:/ You can use D:/ logical partition to recover your files. hope That helps

I have a Sony Vaio Laptop wit windows vista ultimate, does anybody knows how to recovery this laptop?


Most Sony Vaio systems will have a VAIO recovery wizard. Create a Recovery Media Kit using this wizard and you’ll be able to create a set of CDs that will enable you to do a system recovery on your Sony VAIO machine.
If your PC does not have this feature, you can always call Sony at 1-800-488-SONY to have them send you the disks.

Once you have either created or ordered and received the CDs necessary to restore your Sony VAIO computer, you’ll need to place the first CD in the drive and reboot the machine. The recovery process will immediately begin when the system boots. If it does not begin, you may have to enter the BIOS of the computer to change the boot sequence to the CD ROM instead of the hard drive. To enter the BIOS, tap the F2 key numerous times when booting.

REMEMBER... when you use the recoery system, it will restore your computer to it's ORIGINAL configuration from the factory. All data and programs you have installed will be GONE!

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.
