: i have replaced my failed harddrive in my sony laptop, but cannot get it to start; message is that unable to locate operating system. i would like help in procedure of what and how to insall

Do you have a Sony CD drive? The recovery CDs supplied by Sony will boot the machine. I have a Z505 and it will NOT boot from any other CD drive but a Sony. The other postings here are important if the drive you are trying to install is different than the one you replaced.

That all I know right now.
