Accessing your Computer's Boot Menu

To access your computer's boot menu varies from computer to computer. In most setups, your computer by default boots from the internal hard drive. To access the boot menu, restart your computer and watch for the first screen that shows up when you boot. You should see something that says "Press F12 to boot from external device" or something similar. Press the noted key on your keyboard and wait for setup to start. This is usually pretty quick, so make sure it is pressed during that screen, otherwise it will continue the normal booting process. If you are still unsure, either search online for instructions on how to access the boot menu your specific computer or contact your computer's manufacturer for guidance.
