... the "vgn-ns30e" should have Recovery Utility - HDD recovery (hidden partition)

When the SONY logo is displayed, press the F10 key.
In the VAIO Recovery Wizard window, click the Next button.
Under Recovery Options , click to select the C Drive Recovery option.
Click the Next button.


* A C Drive Recovery will return the (C:) drive to its original, factory-installed state. All software and data on the (C:) drive will be erased. If there is a (D:) drive, it is unaffected.
* Only a C Drive Recovery can be performed using the VAIO Recovery Wizard on the Recovery Drive. For a Custom Recovery with options for removing or reinstalling the Recovery Drive, use the Recovery Media Kit.

Under C Drive Recovery , click the Next button.
Under Click Finish... , click the Finish button.

NOTE: The computer will restart.
Under Recovery Progress , when the recovery is Completed , click the Next button.
Under The Recovery process is complete , click the Finish button.
After the computer restarts, the operating system setup wizard will start. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the setup wizard.
