    Burn yourself a windows 8 disc as theog said before going back to Vista and keep the key safe as you have already paid and can be used in future.

    Windows 8


    Now I have decided to run system recovery form two discs of VAIO recovery. I am trying to boot the machine but it won't. It would send my to W8. I guess there might be something with BIOS. My laptop is VAIO VGN-FW140E. Since the CD is not present I was trying to boot from external CD drive as primary (I assigned that at BIOS set up) but at no avail. It does NOT boot at all. PLEASE HELP.
