How To: Set Windows to boot from a CD-Rom first

Set Windows to boot from a CD-Rom first

The video shows users how to change the boot sequence in a computer with an older AMI (American Megatrends, Inc.) BIOS to boot from the CD/DVD drive. This is required, for instance, if you need to reinstall an operating system, or fix a corrupted windows installation by running Windows Setup from the installation CD. Users should first enter the BIOS setup by pressing the delete key when prompted shortly after powering the computer on. Once the Bios Setup screen has loaded, users may navigate to the "Boot" tab using the right cursor key, and hit Enter to select the "Boot Device Priority" option. The first item on the list may be selected by hitting the Enter key once more. The CD-ROM option should be selected by using the cursor keys and pressing enter. Finally, the changes maybe committed by pressing the F10 key and hitting the Enter key to confirm.
