    If you are attempting to change whether or not you boot from CD, FLOPPY,
    IDE HDD's, and SCSI HDD's then you will need to change your boot order
    option in BIOS. Typically, you get into BIOS as soon as your computer goes
    through POST, most computers will say something along the lines of "To
    enter setup press F2", or it may not be F2. The magic key to get into BIOS
    could be F2, F1, Delete, or even F5. Usually the PC will tell you what
    button to push as soon as you pass POST and it will be printed in one of
    the 4 corners of the screen. You may have to press something like the TAB
    key to clear any kind of manufacturer splash screen (whether or not you
    have a splash screen depends on if the option is available and set in
    BIOS). Check the documentation that came with your system or check your
    manufacturers web site to find out what key you need to press to get into
    BIOS and then check your resources to find out where and how in BIOS you
    change your boot order.
