Hi. My name is***** you for your question and the opportunity to assist.

You should be able to get into the BIOS by tapping the F10 key immediately

after starting the computer. Then you can move the CD drive to the top of the

boot order list.

There were 13 9800 series models so you may need to try F2 and F6 as well.
