I wanted to install Ubuntu in Sony Vaio T series 11.6 ultrabook (SVT11125CGS). But I could not get into BIOS setup to change by booting option to USB.
How do I get into BIOS setup?

so technically you use assist button when system is off...... than from rescue select the bios :-)
According to the manual, under "Setting/Changing the Power-on Password" they mention it's the usual F2:
Turn on your VAIO computer and press the F2 key repeatedly until the VAIO logo disappears.
The BIOS setup screen appears. If the screen does not appear, restart the computer and try again.
Specifically regarding booting from external devices they provide this instruction:
You can boot your VAIO computer from external devices, such as an optical disc drive or a USB floppy disk drive, by using the BIOS function.
- Connect an external device to your VAIO computer and turn on the computer.
- Press the F11 key repeatedly until the VAIO logo disappears.
The booting process from the external device starts. If your VAIO computer does not boot up, restart the computer and try again.
If you're using Windows 8, the usual "press some key at boot" spiel won't work. You need to do a special boot via Windows settings.
