Re: How to change the boot up sequence?
When you turn on the machine and the Blue Dell logo appears, hit the Delete Key. You can hit it more than once, it won't kill it.
When the setup screen appears, hit the right arrow to go to the "Boot" benu. You will see a screen like the attached pic.
Press the down arrow until you reach the Boot Device line that contains the CD-ROM drive. Press the "+" sign to move it up the list so that it is above "Hard Drive".
Press F10 to save your changes and exit. If it asks you to confirm the exit, choose yes.
Have the CD-ROM in the drive... it should boot on the CD with no problem.
