  • Before performing a recovery, go to the Sony® eSupport Web site at http://esupport.sony.com and\015\012check your model-specific support page. Look for software and driver\015\012updates or check for knowledge base solutions that may help you solve\015\012your computer's issue.
  • \015\012
  • This model does not require Recovery CDs. Recovery data is included on a special partition of the hard drive.
  • \015\012
  • Do not interrupt the power during the recovery process.
  • \015\012
  • Before\015\012performing a recovery, disconnect any external devices not supplied\015\012with the computer such as printers, network cables, cameras, or\015\012external storage devices, like hard drives or flash drives.
  • \015\012
  • Customers\015\012who purchased the Symantec® Norton Internet Security® 2007 software\015\012from the Sony Style® store with their computer must create a Norton Account to save their product key prior to a system recovery or the software cannot be reinstalled.

    • It\015\012is strongly recommended that recovery discs be created to help restore\015\012files if the operating system will not start. Recovery discs are\015\012bootable and can be used to perform a recovery on a properly\015\012functioning hard drive.
    • \015\012
    • The Windows Backup and Restore option opens the Backup and Restore Center provided\015\012with the Microsoft® Windows Vista™ operating system. This provides the\015\012ability to save information from the hard drive, such as personal data\015\012files, and restore previously backed up data.
    • \015\012
    • Computer problems related to hardware can be diagnosed using the VAIO Hardware Diagnostics option.
    • \015\012
    • One or more drivers or factory-installed applications may be reinstalled with the Reinstall Programs or Drivers option.
    • \015\012
    • The entire (C:) drive can be restored to its original, factory-installed condition by selecting Restore C: Drive .
    • \015\012
    • Choosing Restore Complete System will\015\012restore the entire (C:) drive, while removing or restoring the Recovery\015\012Drive partition. Modifying the size of the hard drive partitions is\015\012also an option with this type of recovery. This option requires you to\015\012insert Recovery DVDs created using the Create Recovery Discs option.
    • \015\012
    • To remove all data from the hard drive, including the operating system, all programs and personal data, choose the Wipe and Erase Data option.\015\012This option is provided for the convenience of advanced users who want\015\012to install a different operating system, and who want to ensure all\015\012data has been removed from the hard drive first. All other users are\015\012strongly urged to avoid selecting this option.

Please update me on the same.
