Okay new rule if you have under 35 rep do not post in this thread!
As said before it's going to depend on which model Vaio she has.

For example the PCG-3E2L uses F12, while the PCG-700 uses F8 at the POST screen (and if you don't hit it at the POST screen you'll get the standard OS mode selection)

It's going to be one of the following, and it will be displayed at the bottom of the screen when the laptop first POSTs:

Esc
F8
F12 <-- most likely

If it's not one of those tell her to do this:

Press and hold the F2 key during the POST screen and get into the BIOS. Tab over to get to the [Boot] menu.
Select 'Boot Order' or 'Boot Device Priority'
In the sub menu that follows, you'll either be able to hit ENTER on [First Device] and select the CD-ROM drive, or you'll be given a list that you can move the order interactively with the -/+ buttons.


Honestly, the above is not much different than any other laptop or desktop for that matter.
