Question about Sony VAIO Digital Studio PCV-RX860 (PCVRX860KIT1) PC Desktop
I have a VAIO... normally VAIO's don't come with restore discs... they ask you to install it to your own discs. but if your still having this problems I reccomend you type online whatever operating system you wan't to install on that system example Windows 7... Type it on google download it look for the .iso image file from the download copy/move it to a blank disc/dvd restart pc with that .iso image file inside the disc/dvd and an installation wizard should pop up with the installation of whatever the Operating System you downloaded and copied to the disc/dvd.
And remember to copy the .iso image file to a BLANK cd/dvd and then restart with cd/dvd inserted.
MAKE SURE: You back up IMPORTANT data you wan't to keep. Because this WILL remove everything on your computer.
Email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org for more help or anything else you have problems with.

As soon as you power up your system keep tapping F8 repeatedly until another screen pops up.
You can select reinstall Operating system (ie windows) / restore factory settings etc from there, Choose option which is suitable for yourslef. By doing it this way it reinstalls the OS that is already stored on your Hard drive so no disc is required.
Hope this helps and please rate
