  • First you can try the hitting F12 when you press the power to turn it ON.

    F12 should give you the Boot menu and will let you choose to boot from CD/DVD, HDD or USB.

    If hitting F12 did not give you Boot Menu Option,

    Turn the system ON and start hitting F2, Now This will Let you Boot into the BIOS and will give you option to change the Boot sequence,
