Question about Sony VAIO Notebook
I would like to force it to boot from windows CD
Thanks for your question.
To force laptop to boot from Windows installation CD you need to do the following.
1. Enter BIOS - press key F2 or F3 (depending on laptop) during the early start up.
.2. Change Boot order to CD-DVD dirve as first one- Depending on BIOS version you will have to look for this in different places. Normally there would be a section called "Boot Order" or it may be in basic settings. Have a look around I'm sure you can find it. Once you found it move CD-DVD drive to the top of the list (usually using + and - keys)
3. Exit saving changes! - Exit tab is normally last one on the right and you can exit with saving changes. You can also exit using one of the keys listed on the bottom of the page of BIOS.
Once you exit saving changes laptop will restart it's self and should boot from your Windows CD. Please don't hesitate to ask more questions if further assistance is needed. Good Luck
