Hello Ravi, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It would be a good idea to create a set of Sony Vaio factory recovery discs to have as a backup to be able to do a factory recovery of Windows 7 if needed say if you are unable to do so normally from the factory recovery partition on the laptop.

A system repair disc is not required, but could come in handy as well to be use to try and repair Windows 7 with if you were ever unable to boot into the System Recovery Options screen using F8 at boot.

Hope this helps,

System Repair Disk not booting into repair options
Created it with no problems, apparently at least. My BIOS is set to boot from CD why won't my machine boot from the system repair disk? There were no errors when disk was created. My machine just boots to windows. Anyone else experience this with Win 7 Professional? Any tips?
