So, it turns out this is really easy on most recent computers. The first four steps are self explanatory. Step five is just a matter of knowing the right key to press and when. Step six can be somewhat confusing because not every computer manufacturer uses the same terminology to describe the bootable USB flash drive or pen drive. Just search for your computer manufacturer and model below, then note the boot menu key(s) and any special instructions.

The tables below offer assistance with steps five and six. The „Boot Menu” column shows the known boot option keys for various computer manufacturers. When you are trying to get to the boot menu, reboot and press the first key as soon as the display flashes or is no longer blank. If that does not work, reboot again and press the key repeatedly immediately after you turn on the power. If that does not work, reboot again and press the next listed key immediately after the display becomes active. After you get to the boot menu, step five involves locating the bootable CraftedFlash USB device. Usually, this device is listed as „Patriot Memory”, „USB” or sometimes „USB-HDD”. Sometimes it will be listed on a sub-menu with the other hard drives.

Keep in mind that most computers will also allow you to change the boot „priority” so that the bootable USB stick is preferred over the local hard drive. The „BIOS/UEFI Key” column shows which key can be used to enter the BIOS/UEFI setup menus in order to change the boot device sequence.
