  • Hello djkaloz,

    Put the Recovery CD in the optical drive, restart the computer, and then boot from the CD.  Look for an alert at bootup telling you which  keystroke will present you with a boot menu, or enter the BIOS setup utility to set the CD drive as the first boot device.

    You should be able to get much more detailed instrucitons at the support pages for your exact make and model of computer.
