Wait till you get the Recovery Set and do as Windows wants to, to Repair itself. Vista is fairly good at fixing itself when things like this happen.

the recovery disc has the boot files pretty much your gonna run the recovery console off the dvd to reinstall the boot files that are missing. where as the fact that you paid for the disc is normal to keep cost down during original purchase of pc. next time go to another computer download and burn dvd image from


its the samething except without the sony **** name on top of the dvd.
