Q: How do I access the Boot menu options on the Gateway M405 notebook?A: In order to access the boot options on this portable computer, press the F10 key while the Gateway screen is displayed during the startup process. This opens a Boot menu with the option to start the computer to any of the available drives or to enter the BIOS Setup Utility. Use the UP ARROW and DOWN ARROW keys to select a menu option, and then press the ENTER key to start to the selected device.
To "boot" (start) to a CD, DVD, or a floppy disk, the media must be in the drive when starting the computer.
Note:: Not all CDs, DVDs, and floppy disks are bootable. Bootable media has specific system files included to make it bootable.
