Try to restore your laptop with DVD media.. Please create recovery disk first ( 3 Blank DVD required ) Then boot from DVD. Maybe it will work for you.
I've tried both with Windows 8 option to create recovery drive and also with VAIO Care Create Recovery Media option, but none work.
The Windows 8 Create a recovery drive option shows this error:
We can't create a recovery drive on this PC
Some required files are missing. To troubleshoot problems when your PC can't start, use your Windows installation disc or media.
The VAIO Care Create Recovery Media dialog shows this error:
Create Recovery Media is installed.
The Create Recovery Media feature requires a recovery partition to function. However, the recovery partition is not present on your system.
To use this feature, reinstall the factory image and include the recovery partition.
I know that there is a recovery partition present in the system. Disk Managment shows four partitions beside the C partition:
OEM Partition - 260 MB
Recovery Partition - 1.44 GB
EFI System Partition - 260 MB
Recovery Partition - 36.32 GB
If you have any ideas of what is causing this and how to fix it please tell me how, because everything I tried so far doesn't work. Thanks
