Using the Boot Menu program
The Boot Menu program is a built in, menu-driven configuration program that you
can use to temporarily redefine the first startup device without changing settings in
the Configuration/Setup Utility program.
To use the Boot Menu program, complete the following steps:
1. Restart the server.
2. Press F12.
3. Select the startup device.
The next time the server is started, it returns to the startup sequence that is set in
the Configuration/Setup Utility program

In order to change the boot drive you have to change the boot settings in BIOS, or sometimes you can get a separate boot menu which allows you to change this setting on a one-off basis. During the boot sequence you need to press the "F12" button during the POST testing to bring up the boot menu if one is available, otherwise you need to press the "Del" or "F2" button during the POST process to bring up the Bios screens. Navigate to the BOOT option and alter the boot sequence, save the settings, exit BIOS and reboot.
Hi Fyamine, While booting go into the BIOS, use either the dedicated keys or +/- to enable/disable the CD ROM boot ( in the Advanced section of device management), then go into the advanced boot tab and change the boot order (it should be CD->HDD->Pxe->Disabled by Default). After that, restart the server and wait for it to boot from the disk.
You firstly have to make your usb key bootable just google instructions on how to do that.
Set the boot order in the bios to boot from it and then transfer the image to the usb key and install from it.
you need to set the boot device priority in the BIOS in such a way that the computer will take an external CD/DVD-drive as first boot device. to do this, you need to enable USB legacy support first, save and exit from the BIOS settings and then return to the BIOS to set the USB-CD/DVD-drive as primary boot device.
