How do I change the boot sequence on my Win7 computer? It now starts with the CD drive and I want it back to my normal drive (SSD) "C". Not sure how it got changed but must have been done by the computer tech that came to my house some time ago.

  1. Start the computer and press ESC, F1, F2, F8 or F10 during the initial startup screen. ...
  2. Choose to enter BIOS setup. ...
  3. Use the arrow keys to select the BOOT tab. ...
  4. To give a CD or DVD drive boot sequence priority over the hard drive, move it to the first position in the list.


probably not F8....that is usually safe mode...


My bet would be the   esc      key


It varies with manufacturer, etc etc....you may have to try a couple of them to get the correct one

Most computers default to boot from the CD drive first, in case you need to boot from a recovery CD. Usually only creates a problem if you leave a CD in the tray and forget about it.
