Install an imaged hard drive.


Start or restart the system.


Just after the manufacturer's splash screen appears a small blinking cursor ( _ ) will appear in the upper left hand corner of the screen.


Quickly press and hold down a Shift key.


After a few moments, the text Grub loading... should flash and you'll be presented with a menu with options similar to this:

Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.32-33-generic
Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.32-33-generic (recovery mode)
Memory test (memtest86+)
Memory test (memtest86+, serial console 115200)

Use the up and down arrows to select your option.
