Answers :

Your problem with recovery DVD/CDs created by built-in Sony recovery program is not a new problem, most of the issue is more then likely due to poor media or the inability of the Sony software to properly ascertain the medial qualities and deficiences before the recovery DVDs were created. Sony has a bad habit of not updating their DVD/CD writer firmwares to the most recent standards and thus make poor quality backups. How do I know this, because I have a Sony Vaio also and have personally seen your issue up close. Unluckily for both of us, Sony has not seen fit to update their firmwares in most of their DVDwriters in some time. Sony and NEC have combined their efforts in a single company called OPTIARC to make and distribute DVD/CD writers. Without your computer's model #, I can only guess at which DVDwriter you may have installed, but I doubt it can be counted on in a pinch.
The F11 key during reboot ( earliest stages of reboot during black screen ) should allow you access to the recovery partition on the hard drive of the computer in question. Once there you should be able to recover your factory installed installation but be aware that recovering that way will lead to a lengthy and tiresome re-installation of the factory defaults. It is very likely you will be sorry you ever bought the Sony by the time it is done. How do I know this, because I have done it to many times, and it still will not cure the inability of the Sony/NEC DVD writer to create good DVD backups on most media.
I would like to think you have a manual or other written material that came with your computer that describes this process in more detail, but at least I know I have put you into the right area to start with. Have a good afternoon re-installing
