What is a Boot menu?

A Boot Menu is a menu (or list) of items you can choose from to determine what device a computer boots (or starts up from)

The Boot Menu is normally accessed by pressing a button on your keyboard when your computer starts up. The exact button you press varies depending on your computer manufacturer, but usually its Esc, F10 or F12. The specific key you need to press is displayed when you put your computer on.

The boot menu can contain various different device options from which a computer is allowed to boot from. these include CD/DVD drives, Hard drives, USB flash drives and a Network (LAN).

This allows you to load operating systems, perform diagnostics or install or run applications, even if the computer already has an operating system (OS) on it.
