How do I reboot with our a disc, please and thank you
Power on the computer.
Put the disk in the optical drive.
When asked there are two options.
A) Repair (Non-Destructive Installation)
B) Full Installation (Destructive Installation)
If you do Not wish to keep your personal documents on your computer, use Full Installation.
It will take your computer back to Day 1 when it came from the factory.
If you wish to keep your personal documents,
(Pictures, Videos, Music, documents you have created, or downloaded, programs you have installed, or downloaded from a website),
then click on Repair.
IF, upon starting your computer, and installing the Restoration Disk in the optical drive, (And closing the optical drive tray), does Not work, please post back in a Comment.
You'll have to go into BIOS Setup, and in Boot Options set the first boot device to CDROM.
(Doesn't matter if you have a CD or DVD optical drive. To include a burner version)
This will force the computer to boot off of the disk in the optical drive.
