I am working on a Vaio VPCEH27FG.

I needed to clear the system and reinstall Windows 7 on it, usualyl no big deal.
Started the restore procedure and it was going fine till it crashed (no error) during the process.

Now it will not restart the process and I am a bit stuck.

Any ideas?

a bit more info ??
Restoring from recovery partition, or Win7 CD, or Sony recovery CD , or other etc ?
What do you mean by wont restart the process ?, wont boot from cd?, wont go into recovery mode ??

Is the Hard Drive working 100% ??

Hopefully, you dont have to do this (http://eric.chromick.com/windows/accessing-the-recovery-partition-on-sony-vaio-vgn-nr385e-use-f10/#axzz1Ykjq7hMx)

This may or may not work (http://forums.techguy.org/tech-tips-tricks/1047596-solved-hp-recovery-via-base.html)

It seems to have started up again on its own.
I hope it just works this time those options you linked look painful.

Partitiion
Will not install windows, will not access recovery wizard.

At least that was the case seems ok now, *fingers crossed*

Make sure the Memory and Hard Drive are ok with Memtest and Seatools before continuing further.
