How can I change the BIOS so that the computer boots from the CD-ROM?
It depends entirely on which BIOS your computer uses. I suggest that you consult your computer's documentation. In general, many BIOSes allow you to choose which device boots the computer by pressing F12 as the computer starts. If that doesn't work, you might have to change the boot order by entering the BIOS Setup utility (often by pressing F2 as the computer starts).
