    Hi All,
    I have a Sony Vaio notebook PCG-FX240 and would like to change the boot
    sequence to the CD ROM. When the unit starts, I depress F2 which gets me
    into the bios setup. I go to BOOT section and I see CD ROM but don't know
    how to turn it ON. When I go to BOOT in setup I see the following:
    CD-ROM Drive
    +Removable Drives
    +Hard Drive
    I highlight CD-ROM and depress Shift+1 as stated on the right side help bar.
    I get:
    !CD-ROM Drive
    I shut the computer down with a bootable CD in the restart. The notebook
    starts using the hard drive and not the CD-ROM.
    Thanks for your help.
