By the way, I've just tried to boot up having the USB in and it hasn't said boot from cd or DVD to allow me to press enter despite creating the bootable usb with the iso files on.

This is the boot thing you mentioned on YouTube. Does this info show why I can't do it?

Did you try the USB flash stick menu choice? Use the up and down key to highlight it then press Enter.

Try also the one-time BIOS Boot Menu key listed on the first boot screen to press to get a boot menu. Normally it will show the name of the flash stick so you know it's recognized.

Did you write the ISO to stick using the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool[2]=General%20Tips and did it complete? Will it boot on another PC?

USB flash* won't work. Has to enable external boot for those with an * next to it.

Can't see the one time boot thing your talking about, and yes I used the link you mentioned above.

Here's the main bit of the bios.

I used the up and down key and then used the + key to move it to the top then f10 to save and exit. I didn't highlight it and press enter.

Tried on another computer to no avail. From the images below, you can see that I've downloaded the iso file so that the USB flash stick appears as a DVD. Also I've included the contents. Really not sure what to do now, feel demoralised!

Try writing the ISO to stick using How To Use UltraISO Software To Create Bootable USB Flash Drive which always works when the others don't.

Use the Sony F2 Boot Menu key at boot to try to trigger the stick to boot. It should have the stick name in the menu if it's recognized.

To boot a flash stick you must have a confirmed ISO written to flash correctly, then trigger it to boot by setting it to boot first in BIOS setup, or using the one-time BIOS Boot Menu key.

Which of the ones should I have as the top priority because more than one say usb.

I don't know what the one time bios boot menu key is??

Really struggling now because I've done the iso file transfer correctly. You can see from the images that it looks correct.

As I stated above you want USB flash at the top of the boot order. I thought you had already done this.

If that fails try USB Hard Drive.
