F3 key doesn't do anything. F6 gives me the option of choosing which OS I want to run. nothing else really seems to do anything.

what version of vaio do you have? F8 or delete, depending on what system, will get you in the bios or safe mode. F8 is usually safe mode options

I'm not sure what version. I know my model, PCG-GR370, But no F key is working to get into viaos. I only get safe mode options like you said. I dont want to be much trouble, i dont like being bothersome. I know alot about computers. Im just trying to get this xp os installed on here. But im going to do it through safe mode in command prompt. Do you know the commands to open your disc drive?
