Booting Your VAIO Computer from External Devices

You can boot your VAIO computer from external devices, such as an optical disc drive or a USB floppy disk drive, by using the BIOS function.
  1. Connect an external device to your VAIO computer and turn on the computer.

  1. Press the F11 key repeatedly until the VAIO logo disappears.

The booting process from the external device starts. If your VAIO computer does not boot up, restart the computer and try again.
  • Disconnect all devices from your VAIO computer except for the external device from which you intend to boot up. Some devices cannot be used to boot the computer, or cannot be used with the computer.

  • If an AC adapter is supplied with the external device, be sure to connect it to an AC power source in advance.
