I have a sony vaio vpc f226fm and i would like to unlock the bios so i can see what kind of settings the memory is set to as well as the harddrive. I am not looking to overclock anything but i would like to be able to maybe install a hackintosh onto a small partition of the harddrive.

It's usually pressing the Delete button or Escape button when you turn it on...

I believe the OP is referring to unlocking Hidden Bios pages if they are supported.
Quite a few notebooks have hidden Bios features/options but I have never dealt with Sony Vaio's in my years a Notebook technician, So i cannot help you there

That is exactly what i was refering to. The only settings i can change in the sony bios is the startup order and the time. that is all i can change. So i would like to have access to more options. And again i am not looking to overclock i just want to change more of the settings.
