  • Open the boot menu of your computer. Depending on the manufacturer of the motherboard, you have to press a different key on the keyboard. The most frequently used keys are ”  Del  ” but the “F1”, “F2”, “F8” or “F10” keys (or more rarely the others) can also be used for this function. Which is usually displayed on the edge of the screen when the manufacturer’s logo appears. Be careful, you only have a short time to press the right button. In case you miss this, you have to restart your PC and try again.

If this is the case, no button may be displayed to start the Boot menu. Do the following instead: Under ”  Control Panel,” click ”  Update and Restore  .” Click on the ” Recovery  ” menu item, then under ”  Advanced Start  ” on ”  Restart Now  “. The computer will now restart. In the next screen, click ”  Troubleshooting”, click ”  Advanced Options  “, then ” UEFI Firmware Settings  ” To enter the UEFI interface.
  • Depending on the computer model, the BIOS or UEFI may look different and have different names for each menu item. But do not let that confuse you. The construction is basically always the same.
  • Use the arrow keys to navigate the BIOS / UEFI. Go to the ” Boot  ” tab  (which may also have the name “Boot Menu”, “Boot Manager” or similar).
  • You can select your USB flash drive to boot the next time the system boots.
