Boot Device Priority Submenu of the Boot Menu
The Boot Device Priority submenu is for setting the order of checking of sources for the operating system.
■
Be careful of the operating environment when booting from a CD or you may overwrite files by mistake.
■
A bootable CD-ROM has either a floppy disk format or a hard drive format. When the bootable CD-ROM
is used, the drive allocations change automatically without changing the BIOS setup. If a floppy disk format is used, the CD-ROM becomes Drive A. The CD-ROM will only take drive C: (hard drive format) if
the internal hard drive is not present or is disabled. The bootable CD-ROM can never use a C: designation
if a formatted internal hard drive is present since the C: designator is always reserved for the internal hard
drive. The boot sequence ignores the new drive designations, however, your application software will use
the new designations.

The boot selections determine the order in which the BIOS searches for the operating system during a
startup sequence. To change the order, highlight one source by using the [up] or [down] cursor keys and
then press the [+] or [-] key to change the order number. Tapping [x] removes from the list a device that is
not installed. Tapping [x] on an item in the Excluded list adds the device to the Boot priority list. Be sure to
save your changed order when you exit the BIOS setup utility.
NOTE: Be aware that if you use the CD-ROM drive as the first boot device, certain files may be
overwritten, depending upon your operating environment.
Exiting from Boot Menu
When you have finished setting the boot parameters with the Boot Menu, you can either exit from the setup utility or
move to another menu. If you wish to exit from the setup utility press the [Esc] key to go to the Exit Menu. If you wish
