and it showed vaio logo then black screen saying starting vaio recovery utility powered by windows..........please wait.........
then changes to blue screen with the vaio recovery wizard it ejected disc & said install disc 1(recovery disc 1 of 1) I did, then select recovery options
i selected c drive recovery , it stated thiers no c drive(which is when I formated it I didnt name it) Please selct custom recovery to perform complete system recovery, & I did and it did the partition "complte"
then started to restoedrive and at 40% or so popped up the ERROR: incompatible Image
I clicked ok, Then pop up again saying recovery incomplete click ok to resume recovery, I do that then it reboots takes you to a black screen(instead of the vaio recovery wizard screen) saying"error loading system operation.....then you have to put 1st disc back in, reboot in order to get back to the VAIO recovery wizard, and repeats the whole thing again
I did check the propties of the disc AFTER formating while still in my pc in case it might tell you somthing or your familiar with.....
under properties ,driver tab,driver details
In driver details it reads this:
disk mngt. reads new volume 149.05 gb ntfs healthy
(too this is suppose to be a 160 gb drive but it only shows the 149.05gb so I assume the 10gb or so has the above in them )
