How do i make a recovery disk for the vaio vgc-ra830g pc?


Hello again,

Sony sells the recovery media if you require it.
https://servicesales.sel.sony.com/ecom/accessories/web/categorySearch.do?operation=subCategorySearch&subCategory=109&category=3&subCategoryName=Recovery%20CD&categoryName=Computer

if the link doesn't work copy it completely to your addressbar and press enter.

If your machine works and you can use it, and you have the original stuff from sony still installed then you can most likely find the vaio recovery from your start menu.

1. close all extra programs that you don't need.
2. disconnect your internet
3. disconnect printers and other extra devices
4. From the Vaio Recovery wizard appliaction, in the vaio recovery window, under media nad recovery options, click to select Create recovery media kit.
5. click the next button
6. You have two choises for recovery media either one recordable CD and two recordable DVD's

OR

10 recordable CD's.

Trying to use recovery disk for VGC-RB34G PC. Disk 1 will not start. Properties show it full but unknown file type. Disk 2 appears to be ok but will not operate without disk 1. How do I get factory...


Sometimes manufacturers use proprietary software to start their recovery disks and that perhaps is why the file type is unknown. You say that it will not start. Are you trying to run it from within windows or at start up. All of the recovery disks that I have worked with have to be started from the boot up. The computer has to be set to start up from CD. Try that and let us know what happens.
If you need help getting the computer to start from cd let us know and we will help you.

Its A file Read Erroror write error, You cany try

Burn another copy of the rescue cd and see if the copy works,,
Use an original windows cd insted of the rescue cd,,

You will need to replace your harddrive,
and this might render (streess the word might) your recovery cd useless in which case you will need to get another windows cd..
