    Here's my choices...

    1.
    2. IDE CDROM:TSSTCorpCD/DVD TS-L532U
    3.
    4.
    5.
    6. USB CDROM (is this a UNIVERSAL SERIAL BUS - attached CDROM?)

    Also; can there be other files on the boot disc, which contains the utility program that I need to run? Or must the disc contain no files other than the utility?

    Thanks!

    #2 is your internal DVD rom. (IN the Box) #6 is your external USB attached ROM. (alongside the box).
    If you put the CD in the internal DVD drive, then you select #2 to boot it.

    Thanks!

    Can there be other files on the CD, besides the utility that I need to run?

    Yes there can be other files, but what exactly are you doing?

    It must be a bootable CD/DVD, or it doesn't matter what else is on it. :)
