boot CD in Sony Vaio notebook in order to ghost the Windows 8.1 volumn

Dear all,

I just found out that I can't boot my Sony 15.5" VAIO noteook from CD-ROM in order for me to to do a ghost image of my whole Windows 8.1partition before I upgrade to update 1 release!

so I can only do the system image ghost feature by Windows 8.1

Any VAIO use can help on this ?

I can tell you that I tried to turn off the UEFI, it doesn't work.

"•UEFI secure boot is part of Windows 8 secured boot architecture"

can do now!

keep pressing F2 during the boot it will boot the CD!

but one thing, as the Windows 8.1 use UHFI partition, make sure that the ghost software can do it!

 I am now using the Acronis from WD to do it and the latest one support Windows 8.1

"i don't understand what you are saying, or want to do"

let me summerize:

1) Turn off the UHFI disk mode
2) keep pressing F2 during PC start.

that's it.

"all the lates versions of image soft handle w8 "

the one we are using is not ! the Sony support told us that windows 8 don't support ghost.!!

seems BS, rihgt?
