F2 did not work. The laptop was off, I held down the F2 key while I powered on the device. Vista loaded. Repeating the process with F1 or the Delete key loads Windows Boot Manager. Got it, power on the Vaio and press Delete, F2 and F12 in this order and/or at the same time. That will bring up the BIOS Utility page.
