I still encountered the bluescreen after doing Step 2: Configure Selective Startup options.

Note: On doing Step 2, I was not able to do item#5 (Click Disable All, and then click OK) because [Disable All] is grayed out. And it's grayed out because nothing on the list of Services were checked.

There was no prompt to restart when I clicked on [OK] so I just restart the machine manually.
I tried restarting on Normal Mode, but got the bluescreen again.

With the amount of problems you are still experiencing I would consider a re-install after backing up the data you require. As the damage appears extensive

No. Don't have it/them.

Can I try to reboot the computer and press then hold F8
At the menu that appears select Last known good, then reboot?

First thing to do is back up all the data you want to keep to either a cd or usb drive

Holding alt + F10 at boot will start the factory restore process but it may bring you to a menu first - if so what options are available on it ?

Took some time to do a back up of the most recent files on my hard drive.

Here are the Options on VAIO Recovery Center
- Windows System Restore
- VAIO Hardware Diagnostics
- Restore C: Drive
- Rescue Data

Restore C: Drive is the command to do a full re-install of your system back to factory settings, my understanding is that it should take no longer that 30 minutes

It depends on how far back you can go... But there is no harm in trying that first
