Hi Norman
Master Boot Record either missing or corrupted. You will need the OS disc to do the repair.
Maybe sector on HD has a recovery partition, you could remove the HD, insert as an extra HD in another machine, access it, and copy recovery partition onto disc. enjoy...
cheers

My System


Boot from Windows 7 DVD choose to Fix My Computer. Windows will try and fix, if that fails go to the Command Prompt and type chkdsk /R and press Enter. The Check Disk Utility will try and fix any file damage.

Thanks guys
That was a nice quick reply,as you say RUSCJAY I thought I would need the OS disc so I have contacted the suppliers of my laptop.
Bought from a good company ebuyer bought loads of computer stuff from them.
Thanks also spunk.funk but as I said no CD supplied with the laptop if I had one I think I could have sorted it just thought you guys might have known another way

Hi everyone, I have a Sony VAIO, VGC-RB30 desktop. I wanted to install Linux, so I partitioned the hard disk. I resized both the recovery partition and the boot partition (Windows), but then when I tried to reboot, it wouldn't. I guess it is related to the "moving left" of the Windows...

Very odd issue concerning dual boot, mbr and swapped drives.
This is kind of convoluted and I'm at a loss for what to do. Short summary: I have 3 drives, let's call them A:, B: and C: My laptop has 2 hard drive bays, I used to have A: installed plus another drive for random storage. Windows 7 was installed on A:. I swapped out the random storage...
