|So my Sony Vaio VGN-NR160E recently fried it's hard drive. I had that replaced and went to reinstall everything using the recovery disk. I put the disk in and started the computer...after it starts it asks for an OS, saying it didn't find one on the disk. I have two different sets of recovery disks for this computer and both do this. How do I fix this? I really don't want to buy recovery disks from Sony that won't do anything differently... Of course it's out of warranty and depending on who I talk to at Sony I get a different answer each time...either buy the disks or no it's a system problem and I need to pay money to the out-of-warranty tech support to fix it...|
I have a friend with a Dell Vista recovery disk, but I'm not sure about using that on my Sony -- I have the product key for mine, so it should be ok...but then it'll be branded a dell...I think.
