It's not reading your HDD, either it is bad or a a setting got changed in your bios. If you you turn it on and press the F2 key right after you turn it on. This will take you to your BIOS setup without changing anything just yet look for HDD settings or just the listing of the HDD and if it is set to boot first if not change it to boot first. Now save the settings and exit the BIOS, if still the same error message. If you have a system restore disk or better yet a disk of your operating system. You will have to go back into BIOS and change the HDD back to boot after the cd drive. Then insert the operating system disk and see if it finds your hard drive. If it can't find your HDD, it's probably for sure. If it finds it and gives you the option to continue, you could fallow installation instructions and partition your HDD if it's big enough, then copy off your files to cd, ETC. Then just do another install this time choosing to format the HDD, you will also have to delete the partition you made. Then install everything transfer your files you copied off and your done hopefully. Good Luck, please reply to this post if you have more questions.

Boot into bios to verify system can see the hard drive. If system shows drive in bios and you are using windows xp or later try using the recovery console options by tapping F8 repeatedly to enter menu. , if you have one. If no recovery console...use either the recovery disks created by the system administrator or the original install disk to attempt a repair option on the boot of windows.
Your hard drive might have damage or the OS my be missing or corrupt.......you might have to re-install the system.

If the Hard Drive is listed in BIOS, Then it is confirmed that the issue is with your Operating System files.
1. Press F8 and try accessing Windows in safe mode.
2. Reset BIOS to defaults.
3. If the issue persists after this, perform system recovery from the recovery partition using the F8 or F10 key at startup.
4. Keep tapping the F8 or F10 key immediately after starting the laptop to access the recovery partition.
5. Then, press the enter key and select perform system recovery option (restore computer to factory settings).
6. If issue persists, then perform system recovery using recovery discs or contact the sony service assistance team to get the recovery partition re-imaged in the laptop.

Put the cd in and restart. If it doesn't give you a message to press "x" to boot from cd, then you need to chage the boot order in the BIOS.

To get into the BIOS, restart and press del or F2 (it might say something on the screen like press del to enter setup) that is the BIOS.

Change the boot order to CD first.
