If you are trying to boot from something other then the internal HDD/SSD boot drive then during post (same time that you can press Del to enter setup) you can press an F-key that allows you to select which drive you want to boot from. Which f-key depends on the bios but it will tell you at the bottom of the screen where the enter setup message is also.
