    Sony Vaio E11 Windows 8 + Ubuntu 13.04 Install Hosed!

    Hi! I just tried to dual-boot install/correct the Windows 8 installation on a Sony Vaio E11 and accidentally deleted the Windows 8 partition. Now it can't recover the Windows 8, and I have attempted to install Ubuntu twice and it doesn't boot, complaining "No Operating System Found" with either UEFI or Legacy BIOS settings selected. Please how can I fix Ubuntu 13.04 boot properly and have Windows 8 in a tiny partition where it deserves to be ?

    Thanks!

    Did you also delete the Windows recovery partition. And not have a full backup of Windows?
    If so you have to contact vendor and see if you can get a recovery DVD set. Some only charge a nominal fee, other cases it may be easier just to purchase a full copy of Windows 8.

    Is this model an UltraBook. Then you have to remove RAID meta-date that Intel SRT adds to drives. See link in my signature for lots more info.
