sony vaio PCG-71314L on turning on, hangs at "windows is starting" for ever F10 says "disc read error" F8 says "no operating system found" booting/repairing/reinstalling from CD hangs at "windows is loading" for ever
what is wrong? how could i get it to boot/repair/reinstall? really desperate, losing all data on HDD is fine, just need to make it work again.

Sounds like your HDD has died assuming F10 is Sony's hotkey to boot to the recovery partition. If the unit is under warranty, time to call Sony about getting it fixed.
