The Sony laptops can be quite tricky to work on, I would suggest having someone that is trained replace it because there is a good chance of breaking something while stripping the unit down.

Download ubuntu iso from www.ubuntu.com and burn to a cd or usb. You can choose either a 32-bit or 64-bit iso from the website and before choosing, check if your windows is 32 or 64-bit in "System" under "Control panel".
When you boot from the cd/ usb you will get to the install interface where you can choose to install ubuntu along windows. Then you can choose how big you want your ubuntu partition to be and that's it - the installer does the rest of the work. You can now choose between windows or ubuntu at every start up.

Recovery disk can be save as system back up files and then reinstalling it again. Try to ask your friend to give you system back up files(same operating system) which can be save using external Hard drive or USB flash disk and install this back up to your computer to work again or if your computer is not working try to boot your computer in CDROM and use the back file to restore your system.
