Pick Ïnstall a new system or upgrade an existing system" from the syslinux menu.

  • rescue installed system - okay, this is sensical, although I wouldnt think to use an install DVD for this

  • memory test - why is this here?

  • The DVD pops out, which is an annoyance as you have to insert it back in
