Grub Rescue on Windows 8 Ultrabook

Hello,

I am the elected "Tech Guy" at work. A programmer who was using a Sony Ultrabook no longer works with us and did not leave his password unlocked. I was able to get into the BIOS but, I used a key cracker to boot and get the password off of the machine. The cracker was linux based and now when I turn on the ultrabook I get

error device not detected

Since that happened I have been unable to access the BIOS. How can I get this machine up and running again?
Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

I think you might need to contact Sony about this, and see if there's something they can do to fix it for you.
