Best Of Tom’s Hardware: How To Build A PC

No system is complete without software, and most operating systems come on a bootable CD. The system's boot order can be selected in the motherboard BIOS, usually under the "Advanced BIOS Features" menu, and should be set to boot from CD first. Many modern motherboards will list the actual name of the drive in the boot order, while others will only list it by device type.

Further BIOS tips and tricks can be found in our BIOS for Beginners.

We hope that this series has made your build a complete success, but if it hasn't, members of our Community Forums eagerly anticipate your technical questions.
