Hello,

I have a sony vaio VGNCS14G laptop with vista home premium as OS.
I was trying to restore C drive and during the process the system shutdown as it was running on battery.

now I am unable to complete the process and none of the available options are working.

can some one guide me how to factory restore form booting?

I have ended in a big mess and some please help me urgently


Thanks

Thank you
start up computer and immediately start tapping f10. This will take you to a black screen with white writing. Hit enter. The next screen gives you two options- hit the skip button. Next screen check the box and hit next. Your computer will be restored to it's factory settings in about 20min. Make sure your computer is plugged in.

Thank you, Ambucias 18

My sony vaio with vista for some reason after I hit the Enter.. it goes to Sony recovery. I try to enter Restore Drive C but it goes to system recovery ...not to factory reset. Is there something else I should select? there are 4 options in this mode.
Oppps it says skip way on the bottom. Thank you for great advice!!
Thank you, it works!

Does using the "f10" process setup a working copy of the original vista install?
