Hello, friends! In this article I want to show you how to enter BIOS on a Sony vaio laptop and set priority to boot from a flash drive or cd-rom. There are a lot of questions on this topic, users can not understand how to make Sony vaio in Bois so that the download occurs from a flash drive or cd-rom.
Just want to note that the manufacturer Sony vaio does not stand still and laptop models are being modernized, so bios may be slightly different, but the essence remains the same. I will show the Sony vaio BIOS model as an example PCG-71812V.
Next section. Advanced. This section has only one tab. Virtualization technology. You can turn it off (Disabled) or enable (Enable) To do this, press the Enter key and use the arrows on the keyboard to select a function. Disable / Enable, then press the key F10 and Enter.
Next section. Security. In this section you can set passwords.

Select the tab with the arrow on the keyboard External devise boot press the key Enter in the drop-down menu, click Enable. In this way, we allow booting from external devices.
Next, down the arrow on the keyboard, selecting the tab External device(External device) and now not by an arrow, but by pressing a key F5 raise this tab to the very top, thereby we set the priority of loading from a USB flash drive to the BIOS. In order for the download to go with cd-rom, you need to select the tab Internal Optical Disc Drive and also with the key F5 raise to the very top, then the download will be from cd-rom. After setting, be sure to save everything by pressing F10. After rebooting, in some cases, to start the download from a USB flash drive or cd-rom, you need to press any key briefly. I hope it is clear!
The last section of the bios. Exit(Exit). There is definitely nothing to configure here, everything is connected with logging out and saving from the system.
