Hi Sara:
You can change the boot order from BIOS.  It varies on how to get into 
BIOS, but mostly [DEL] key or one of the function keys.  I suspect, 
you'll get a message on the first splash screen as to what key to 
press.  Sometimes it might say "Press Esc to enter boot menu" or 
something like that.  Press Esc and you should see a menu from where you 
can enter BIOS.

Once you enter, you should look for "Boot Order" option and change it.

Hope this helps.

Warm Regards
Nigel Babu
