How to Change Boot Order in Sony Vaio E Series

Hi everybody, I want to change the boot order on my Sony Vaio, but I don't know how. I haven't figured how to change my boot order or enter the BIOS. Does anyone know how to do either? Please tell me, as I would like to downgrade from Windows 8 to Windows 7.

    .

    Turn on computer hit F2 and see if "F12 network boot" is disabled
    IF it is arrow down (so it is white)
    hit enter changed to enable hit enter
    will ask if you want to save and exit choose YES
    when system restarts hit F12 and you should go boot order

  5. Te100 has the right solution for your problem, I think. I have the same issue and it works for me. Just press the ASSIST button when your computer is off and it will turn the computer on and direct you to the wizard page which will guide you through the process. Just follow the wizard as what you want to do.

  10. i want to change boot order
  11. power on you e/f series vaio laptop using the assist key instead of power on key
  12. just press ESC and it will load the boot menu order
  13. Nothing from above helped me.
    But what that worked:
    1. Turn off laptop. Not a regular way but
    Open Charms bar,
    Settings,
    PC Settings,
    Recovery and Update,
    Recovery,
    Advanced Startup,
    Turn off,
    2. Press Power key.
    3. Press F2 key.

  15. Which Windows version were you using for your solution?
    I tried it with Windows 10 and it did not work.

    Does anyone have a Windows 10 solution?
  16. Switch off the laptop. Now press the ASSIST key to turn ON the laptop. DO NOT press any other key, not even the POWER BUTTON. The laptop will turn on to the Recovery screen and from there you can select what you want to do. IT DOES WORK.
  17. This is the REAL SOLUTION
