I've had a Sony VAIO since September. I believe it was a power outage which
may have corrupted a file in the boot sector...config/system. Stupid of me, I
didn't make a boot disk, however I have a recovery disk. I want to save my
50mg of personal data on this 250G hard drive. Can I use the download from
any Windows XP operating system to boot up just to save my data. Then proceed
to recover the system. Or what would anyone suggest? Sony isn't helping,
Microsoft isn't supporting it. And it's too frustrating to know I've got a 2
yr Onsite Warranty with Sony and they are inasmuch saying 'not my problem.'
