On a dell, if you hit the F12 key during start up you get a boot menu, select optical or cd drive and hit enter. there is no need for a boot order change in the bios. if you have the original dell os cd, you will not be asked for the product key. CTRL F11 will run the built in recovery program if that laptop has it, be warned, using the dell recovery program does a format and reloads the factory software..
The name says it all -- 59 and holding permanently
