My Mobo' is MSI 865PE Neo2. I want to change the boot order so I can boot from CD to run Ubuntu but can't see where to do it. I would have assumed that it is under "Advanced BIOS Features" but not found. I don't normally play around with BIOS so any help appreciated.

Go through all the menus then. It'll be under one of the menus / submenus

Go Into The BIOS - try Advanced BIOS Features, or Advanced Chipset Features - Sure its under one of those.

Reboot & tap the F11 key, should take you to boot selection.

Remember, all BIOS's are different, so F11 may not work. :)

Ok, when you went to Advanced BIOS features, was the option there to select a boot device?
If so, just highlight it and press Enter
Which should then take you to the dialog at the bottom of that site.
Select first boot and press enter again, it should give you more options for first boot device. Once finished press F10 to save

Just looking at the actual manual - I have believe it or not the Same board here - only difference is its the P version As shown Here (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/DSC01011_[Desktop_Resolution].JPG).

According to the manual, Page 3-8 Under advanced BIOS features second option Down is the Boot Order - the pictures not that clear - but Theres a red line through it (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/BIOS1237436058.jpg).

Edited: OK Much Better Picture (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/Better.jpg)

Edited 2: Works Over Got my own beer now (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/DSC01017_[Desktop_Resolution].JPG) :thumbs:
