hmmm,
I looked up something, and it sure looks like it that at the moment, you're truly scruwwed.
Sony Vaio series with windows 7, models later than year 2011, were supposed to get tested by Sony to check for upgrade issues.

You say so yourself, actually, but you may not have know all that before you wiped the drive.

Even windows 8 and 8.1 users were asked to wait until october and november.

And to make matters worse, you could not burn the recovery DVD set because your DVD-drive is kaput.

The windows 10 download tool also offers "make a a bootable USB" option, which looks like your last shot?

(edit; that is not on a DVD in a USB DVDwriter, but a bootable thumbdrive/aka/memory stick)
