For HP, the bios boot menu key should be F12.

Press and hold F 12 just when the motherboard splash screen pops up , it will list up all the possible drives to be booted from. Choose the dvd drive using the scrool keys, and hit enter.

When asked, choose 1 for resolutions.

Make the DVD and put it in the DVD drive and shut down your PC. Start your PC and PW will be started when the PC boots.

You need to do one of 2 things:

Go into the BIOS and change a setting so the PC will boot from the DVD drive first.

or

Use an F key during the boot process to bring up a menu that will let you select the DVD drive as the boot device.

Arc thinks it is the F12 key. I don't know what it is on an HP. It varies among brands. Hold F12 down during a boot and see if that brings up a menu. If it does, choose your DVD/CD drive.

Did as u said but instead of booting from PW my laptop started producing continous beep sound & a black screen appeared & then it got shutdown.
I'm totally confused.

Edited post :

You reboot . Follow carefully what is written in the motherboard screen .... something like

F2 : Bios setup
F12: boot menu

Or anything similar ? Please let us know.

Edit : it might be the Esc key ... even ... better you check it by rebooting and seeing the screen. F12 sometimes is the network boot key .

Nothing like that is written.
While booting only thing that is written is-
Press Esc for startup menu
