Ctrl-L "..to get into BIOS requires a very quick trigger finger to catch the right point to execute the CNTRL-L command. " (Taken from http://www.crn.com/reviews/components-peripherals/209903868/review-workstation-workhorse-lenovos-thinkstation-d10.htm )

If it's asking for a BIOS "key" or password to enter the BIOS, and you didn't set one, this article should help:

How to change boot order dx4200-ub001a?


To change the boot order, you will want to go into your BIOS. From the HP.com website it shows the following below to enter the BIOS:

BIOS Setup Utility Information and Menu Options

  1. Turn off the computer and wait five seconds.
  2. Turn on the computer and immediately press the F10 key repeatedly until a BIOS Setup screen opens. If nothing happens, press the F1 key repeatedly.
Use the arrow keys to move through the options (Note the commands key list in the lower right of the link I provided to HP.com) You will likely need to enter the advanced area to change your boot order.

Change boot cd rom bios


There are different methods for BIOS'es, but.........

Boot Order:

1) This method has it where you use the appropriate key (Down Arrow key?), and highlight the boot device you want, in the list.
Then you press the Enter key.
From there you use the appropriate Change value key, and move the boot device to the top of the Boot Order list.
(Page Up/Page Down, or +/- keys)

Then you press the Enter key again, and you are back to the main Boot Order menu.
Now press the appropriate key (Example - F6), and Save Changes.
Or there is a Y/N, or Yes/No to highlight, and then press the Enter key.

You MUST Save Changes, or it will be like you have done NOTHING at all.

2) This style has it where you highlight Boot Order, and then use the appropriate Change Value key, to move the boot order around.
For example you press the Change Value key, and after pressing enough times, the boot device you want will be at the top of the list.

The press the Enter key, and go through the procedure of Saving Changes.

The navigation guide is at the Bottom of each BIOS menu screen.
Does not state navigation guide, though.
Individual navigation comments are to the right side, for each submenu in Boot Order.

Read carefully, and see how to properly set HDD 0 / IDE 0, as the first boot device.

First boot device: Cd/dvd drive
Second: the harddrive.
Leave the bios and save the settings.

Place your windows cd in the drive and reboot.
Now you can install windows again.

Good luck

Boot record


In most of the cases, to open BIOS, users have to press DELETE or F2. The best way to know, which among the keys is to use, is to look at the bottom of the screen during the pre-booting process. When the BIOS shows up, to scroll through the options, you should use the navigation keys, i.e. the four arrow keys. To change the boot priority, after selecting the device (say, CD/DVD) with the navigation keys, press 'ENTER' to open the option menu to select any device from all available devices(like, CD/DVD, HDD, Floppy, USB, etc)list.

Cant access bios to change boot order to reuinstall windows 7


Boot the computer and watch the screen. It will tell you what key to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup. You have to hit the key when you see the message or it won't work and you will have to restart.

It also shows you which key to hit to change the Boot Sequence or Boot Order. But you have to hit the key when the message appears on the screen or it won't work and you'll have to reboot. This is a temporary 1 time change for the current boot cycle. When you change it in the Bios or System Setup it's a permanent change.

I have acer aspire 3000+ and cant change bios setup to boot first from cd rom and erecovery doesnt work


Why can't you change the bios setup to change the boot order or boot sequence?

Also you can change the boot order or boot sequence temporarily by just rebooting the laptop then watch the screen for which key it says to hit to change the boot sequence or boot order, then hit that key when you see the message.

How to make CD Rom run as BOOT? please key in


Go into the BIOS and change the boot startup device order. Make the CD the first boot device and the hard disk the second boot device.
If you do not wish to change the BIOS you may select the CD drive as an alternate boot device by pressing F10 or F!2 as the laptop boots up to bring up a list of devices to want to boot from, select the CD drive and the follow the screen prompt.

I want to reformat my computer, my question was how to first boot my cd rom to install...


Start your computer.
When you see the 'Press DEL to enter BIOS SETUP mode", press the 'DEL' key.
Change the "boot-order" to put your CD-ROM as the "first" (highest-priority) boot-device.
Save-and-exit from BIOS setup.
Insert the disk into the CD-ROM.
Your computer should boot from the disk in the CD-ROM.
