How can i change boot sequence of my desktop


You have to change the boot order at the bios settings. Just after the screen comes up, before windows start up press (repeatly) the F2 key (depending on the model, maybe F1 or del key) and go to the boot sequence. Here change the boot order as you wish.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

Hello,

First you need to make sure that the CD drive is selected as the first boot device.

You can set that by going into BIOS setup by pressing Del/F2 during system startup OR during startup press F12 and select CD drive from the boot device selection menu.

Press Enter.

See if the system is able to start from the disc.


Thanks

Which key to press at startup to gain access to BIOS E2180 Intel


There are a number of keys used to access the system BIOS at startup. F2 is probably the most common, but I see you've already tried that. I've also seen the ESC and DEL keys used, so try those. If that doesn't work, start working your way across the F1-F12 keys.

Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

Getting ERROR FOR OPERATING SYSTEM


This is because you have to change the boot sequence in the BIOS or setup of the motherboard. When you first turn on the computer you can see something like press DEL to enter Setup or F12 or F10 or F2 depending onyour motherboard. once you get into setup you will see either boot sequence or boot order. Set the CDROM as the first boot device. Then when you startup the computer again you will see PRESS ANY KEY TO BOOT FROM CD. proceed with pressing anything on the keyboard.
