How do I boot from CD/DVD/USB in Windows 8?

"This is actually a pretty common problem that has recently become more complex.

Your computer’s BIOS needs to be instructed to check for a bootable CD or DVD before it tries to load whatever is on the hard drive. Right now, your computer is configured to either ignore the CD/DVD at boot time or check the hard disk first.

Oh, you don’t have a BIOS? You have a newer machine running UEFI?

Well then things get more complex"

As more people move to Win8 and beyond this question will be asked more often.. ask Leo, I'm busy!  :D
