How do I re-install all the SONY's settings and drivers from 4 DVDs but NOT the OS ?

Hello, 

 

How do I re-install all the SONY's setting and drivers from 4 DVDs (Sony Recovery DVDs set)  but NOT re-install the OS ?

Also, is there a way I can copy/paste all the contents from 4 DVDs then paste onto a flash drive and then use the flash drive instead of using the optical drive? (Because it seems to me, dvd #1 stuck at 22% for a long time, dvd#2 stuck at 46%, dvd#3 stuck at 88% ...

 

Thank you

Hi Afite1968,

 

Welcome to Sony Community!

 

When using the VAIO recovery disc, it will automatically play and reinstall everything in it. You can't just choose a specific setting because it downloads on its own. You've mentioned that the discs stopped at a certain percent, if this is happening then it's possible that it's already corrupted.

 

If you haven't modified your laptop yet, it's better to do a reformat using the hidden partition but make sure to back up all your files first. 

 

Regards,

Jen
