What does Boot mean?

The term Boot referred to as boot up or sometimes start up, booting is the first operation done by your computer, it is the process of powering on a computer and getting into the operating system, generally describe the long list of things that happen from the pressing of the power button to a fully loaded and ready-to-use session of an operating system, like Windows.

What does Bootable mean?

Computers are typically configured to look for the OS (Operation System) on a CD or DVD or USB first and then the hard disk or SSD.

A bootable disk is used to recover a failed system when the OS on the internal storage drive does not load, and it is also used to install a new operating system.

Boot sequence

In order to boot something first we need to change the boot sequence in the boot Menu.

Using Boot Menu is actually very easy, you only just need to press the pre-assigned keyboard key on your computer’s startup and that will instantly open the Boot Menu for you.

How to open the quick boot menu?

Normally the Startup Screen of your computer or laptop will provide you that pre-assigned keyboard’s key to open the boot menu.

If the first boot screen didn’t show you something, then you can also try these keys one by one until it opens the boot menu:

The keys are F7, F8, F9, F10, F11 and F12 you can try these keys one at a time by pressing it again and again, after the 2 second when your system starts, try the F10, F11, F12 first because these keys are the most default pre-assign key for this menu.

It varies between pc brands, if these suggested keys won’t work, you can search on the internet for example (hp boot menu key)

After opening the boot menu, you can see all your Hard Drive, SSD, or CD/DVD-RW Drive and as always, your USB Flash Drive too.

In this menu, you can easily select the bootable device you wanted to boot, just select the name of your storage device and press Enter to make boot it instantly.

Note: If your computer doesn’t support the boot menus (because most of old BIOS version do have that problem in it) then you can also configure the boot sequence all by yourself in the BIOS setting.

What does BIOS mean?

BIOS (Basic Input Output System)

It enables computer to perform certain operations as soon as the user turned it ON.

The principal job of a computer’s BIOS is to govern the early stages of the startup process to ensuring that the operating system is correctly loaded into the computer’s memory.

The main purpose of BIOS was Input, and Output Maintenance Computer BIOS is a firmware which starts to run when user turn on the computer, it is the program who personally starts the whole system like hard disk, ram, video card and etc. to get the computer system started in a normal state.

When you Turn ON the system, your computer’s microprocessor process and control the BIOS program which is always located in the same place.

There are two types of BIOS menus. The first one is just the normal ‘BIOS Menu’ (which can be seen on the older desktop or laptops) and the other one is ‘UEFI BIOS Menu’ (which is standard nowadays). Functionality, adaptability, and speed are the three major differences between these two.

The main function of Computer’s BIOS

  • Test the computer hardware and make sure no errors exist before loading the operating system.
  • Locate the operating system .If a capable operating system is located the BIOS will pass control to it.
  • Low level drivers that give the bios basic operational control over your computer.
  • Configuration program that allows you to configure hardware setting including system setting such as computer password, time and date.
