Sony Vaio Windows 7 Recovery Disk Torrent -> DOWNLOAD (Mirror #1). Nov 9, 2009 - I NEED RECOVERY DISCS FOR SONY VIAO MODEL VGNNS190J - MY. You can reinstall your OS using an OEM Windows disk, which you can torrent off the internet.
Ok, so a friend has a late 00s Sony Vaio laptop and the HDD is failing. Here's I want to do: 1) A clean install of Windows 7 Pro on the new SSD, either from my computer via external enclosure or from installer on thumbdrive on his computer with the new SSD installed. Then, use factory install Windows license key on back of Vaio. 2) Pull files off of failing HDD from my computer via external disk enclosure. I have no idea where to find a download for the Windows 7 installer. I just want to use the license key included on the back of the Vaio.
Also, I cannot just use the recovery partition or clone the existing HDD because it is failing and I don't want undue stress on it. The only work i want it doing is through access to its files from my computer.
The only link I have found on Sony's website is to order disks. Is this my only option? Any help would be appreciated. I'm not sure why this needs to be this difficult.
