F8 or F12 at start up for bios

Usually F8 as soon as you turn comp on aint it? x

Depends on your computer apparantley, sometimes its a F button or can be escape or youll have to try um all haha x


Usually says on the screen


delete key on mine

F8 is for safe mode!

I deleted my comment about DEL and F2 given the further posts but come to think of it......

esc/ del / f1 /f2 /f10

should tell you bios management entry key on startup.

from cd, you need to set this as an option in bios.

looking for boot order, make sure cd/dvd is first.

or press f12 or whichever key is set to give boot option to bring up a list of devices to boot from (if supported on your mainboard & bios)

Motherboard make model would have helped /all
