    Thanks Ray.

    Not sure what is wrong with rooq's machine. Have you got a Vaio?

    If you have,. can you do screenies to show us how to get the thing to boot from V7f ?

    I might have to do it myself tomorrow, I have never looked at a vaio before, so I have no idea.

    Thanks for the link.

    Not interested in vaio recovery, the HD is dead and has been replaced.

    Need to boot v7f from usb, get the key from the firmware, and install 8.1.

    Looks like it is F11

    Thanks for all the help, guys. I have to return the laptop to its owner today as I'll be away for a while but I will pass on the advice and recovery tools.

    If anything, I have learned what is required if my own laptop faces this issue! .

    Thank you.

    Yes, it is sounding more like a hardware problem.

    information   Information

    We always assume you have made your Recovery Disks using the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Media Creator app the first day you had your new PC.
    & made the Startup Repair CD. (Windows 8 only)
    Recovery Drive - Create with USB Flash Drive in Windows 8
    System Repair Disc - Create in Windows 8 (Windows 8 only)




    I would recommend you making the OEM manufacturer's Recovery DVD's or USB drive.

    Attachment 39898
    or
    You can order the Microsoft official OEM Recovery disks from the OEM manufacturer's website.


    I cant get to the recovery menu or bios having tried different combinations of Shift F8, F12, F2.
