kept rebooting over and over, tried safe mode and so forth but no good, so decided to reinstall/recovery the windows software with the recovery media kit.. that was made when first got pc new in about 2004..its a 2 disc set on this pc, start-up recovery disc & recovery disc 1 of 1 ..
I installed the 1st one & it brought pc up to the vaio recovery wizard screen, then instructed to install the second disc being recovery disc 1 of 1, after installing it, it began to partition & restore drive,and during that time I lost power (electricity) not funny!!!
Now evry time I try to do the recovery it will do the 1st disc then instruct to put in the second disc & it starts to partition & then begins to restore drive,it goes anywhere from 25% up to 75% on restore drive progress bar till it stops with the following errors(one error per time I've tried,over 20 plus times, I keep trying)
[*]Error: Incompatible Image in use (this error is the most seen and showed the last 5 times Ive tried)
[*]Error: stream reading error
[*]Error: diskpart.exe is not a valid win 32 application
[*]Error: only part of the read process memory or write memory request was completed
[*]Error:code:-1 error occured while partitioning
I have reset the Bios to default as per sony instructions,but it didnt help none, Ive done this about ten times..
I do know the last several times it does go past the partition (ie: *partition --Working... completed)
then pops the error during restore drive.. (ie:*restore drive...error)
any help or wisdom at all would be most appreciated
thank you in advance,
