Hi yes I tried to boot off the disc but it always goes back to the same black screen with the bootmgr message I cant get off that screen is there a way or a key to press to get off that same screen? Thanks
When you restart the computer keep tapping F2 or F3 (not sure which one on a Vaio), this should give you access.
This needs to be done before the BIOS hands over to the OS, try it as soon as you see the Vaio screen.
Use the Esc key or look for Exit menu. Have you change the boot order to boot from cd first? If yes, make sure you save changes on exit. While you are there (BIOS setup), take a look at the Main menu and see if the hard disk drive is being detected by the system.
Hi thanks so much! I dont see a cd on the bios I only see external harddrives and so on is it called something else? Then when I exited it came back to the same bootmgr screen I am getting there but I really dont have a clue what to do, I dont know how to get to the main menu or a start up menu any ideas? Thanks so much Linda
