    Keep in mind that not all PCs have a boot options menu. Most newer ones do, but if it's more than 1 or 2 years old, it may not have it as an option. If it doesn't just go into the BIOS (either F1 or F2 or Del) and set up the boot order how you want it....

    If you posted the model number of the PC, we could get more precise info, but then again, so could you. A visit to the EMachine support page and a quick look at the manual for the PC should answer all your questions. Since EMachine has been in business for 15 years or so, they have many models, and they all don't use the same thing for getting into the BIOS. The three keys I posted earlier, and again here, are the most common. You can also try to press Tab at the logo screen; that commonly closes the logo and shows the user what's going on behind it, including the press-this-key-for-BIOS-setup-prompt....

    Good luck!

    I agree,
    If it's an older model, I think the Delete key should do it for you.
