Can I get into the BIOS on a Sony Vaio other than F2. After multiple attemps I can get in. I need to change the boot order so I can reinstall Windows.

Most laptops allow you to select the boot device on a temporary "one off" basis so you don't have to go into the BIOS Setup and risk messing up a vital BIOS parameter or changing the semi-permanent boot sequence.

Try F11 or read the laptop's manual. Never had a Sony laptop so I'm just going by how most other laptops work that I've encountered.

To answer your question, I have never seen where there are more than one way to access the BIOS Setup Menu. If your BIOS requires F2, then F2 it is. Some require F11, some F1. Mine requires pressing the Del key.
