Can;t use recovery partition in sony vaio z520n/b
\015 In my sony vaio I have a recovery partition but I reinstalled Vista and now I can not use recovery partition, but if I have Sony Recovery Center I could have made a recovery cd and from it install all from scratch, but how can I gat Recovery Center? I can't find it anywhere\015
If you go to sony's website and under drivers and support, put in your model number you should either be able to download the recovery software (which wont work if your recovery partition is gone) or order the recovery cds from them for a nominal fee (anywhere from 10 bux to 50 bux depending)...you can also call them to order the cds aswell or find out where you can download the software..usually the easiest option.
