A technician has been asked to reinstall the OS on a computer that has a corrupted operating system. The technician inserts the installation media in the optical drive. What would be the most likely action the technician should perform next?
- Change the boot sequence in the BIOS.
- Change the BIOS password.
- Flash the BIOS for a firmware upgrade.
- Change clock speeds in the BIOS.
Explanation: Typically, once the operating system has been installed, the computer boots from the hard disk all the time. To boot from an optical drive, the boot sequence needs to be modified. Changing the BIOS password, flashing the BIOS, and changing the clock speed have no effect on loading installation files from the optical drive.
