Default Installing OS on a new built System

Once you've turned it on, the first step will be to open the DVD drive, and put the OS disc in, whether that be Windows or Linux.
If it doesn't load up the disc, you'll need to go into the BIOS (it'll say 'F12 for Setup' or something along those lines), and change the boot order to boot from CD/DVD first.

The BIOS is already pre-installed on the motherboard, on its own separate chip.
