I changed the hard drive in my Sony Vaio FW51ZF from a 500gb to a 750gb and when I try to restore from the recovery discs I made when I purchased the machine (I made 3 sets just in case!) it restores the recovery partition and I think drive C but when it says remove disc and restart to restore programs to drive C, I get a recurring error message saying "Windows could not complete the installation. To install Windows on this computer , restart the installation" . The only thing that is different is the hard drive size, but I kept the C drive partition to the factory default size . Has anyone else had this problem and did you find an answer to it,
any help please.
