Additional notes

Windows XP and Windows Vista users:- This video was recorded using Windows 7, but the process is the same for your operating system too.

Accessing the Advanced Boot Options menu:- Accessing this menu can be a little tricky, you need to press the F8 key before Windows starts to load. Most users simply keep pressing the key while their PC powers up. This might cause the PC’s internal speaker to beep, but no harm will be done to your computer if this happens.

If you are using a Windows 8 machine, you will need to enable the Advanced Boot Options menu before you can access it. Click here for a tutorial that shows you how to do this.
