Question about Sony VAIO PCV-RX511 PC Desktop
I'm unable to change the BIOS so I can boot from the CD or DVD rom drive to install a linux OS. I tried removing the jumper to flash the BIOS, which enables me to restart the computer and change the BIOS, but the settings won't change. When I return to the BIOS the settings are the same. And I cannot access the disk to boot from it and install VectorLinux.
I couldnt get the boot menu to come up either, so i had to disable the hard drive from booting in the BIOS, so the system had no choice but to boot to the cd-rom. Worked great!

You should be able to exit and save changes, which my guess is you are exiting without saving the changes. theres is a way around this, by pressing either F8, F9, F10, or F12 to access the boot menu, and then you can boot from cd to install your linux operating system
